Individual IT culture (IITC) represents the measure of an individual’s exposure to, and experiences with IT at a given point in time. The resulting IT culture archetype from this measure can be classified as representing either the proactive, passive or refusal attitudinal group. Within the IS literature, previous studies have demonstrated how the knowledge of IT culture archetypes enhances our understanding of IT usage, and poses broader implications for strategic IT management within organizational settings. In this paper we argue that despite these studies, the role IT culture plays in facilitating actual benefit outcomes from IS/IT usage has remained largely unexplored. Thus, in the present study we test the extent to which the presence of particular IT culture archetypes influence the likelihood that benefits are realized among individuals within an organizational context. The implications for research and practice are also discussed.
