Antecedents of Digital Platform Organising Visions
  Organising vision theory has been increasingly used in Information Systems (IS) scholarship to study how IT innovations are adopted, used, and diffused. Although providing comprehensive social cognitive account on the phenomena, organising vision theory is less adequate to explicate how visions emerge. Bringing in scholarship from Science and Technology Studies (STS) together with IS, our examination of a case study involving the organising vision emergence of an ERP digital platform technology unearthed details of its origin and management. Our findings suggest that organising visions originate from repurposing of other structured frameworks. This research contributes to the organising vision theory by providing a more nuanced comprehension of vision’s antecedents, which more broadly may help better understand digital innovation adoption.
