Abstract

Contextual issues that surround the adoption of mobile digital innovations have become a topical issue for both academics and industry experts. In an attempt to bridge this knowledge gap, Doe et al. (2017) developed the Firm Technology Adoption Model (F-TAM) through a systematic literature review. The authors suggested an exploratory study among industry experts to further validate the model. This paper employs the Delphi technique among academics and industry experts to further refine the F-TAM model. The study sought to examine the degree to which the F-TAM reflect the adoption pattern among SMEs in Ghana, whether there are other factors of variables that are not accounted for in the FTAM, and whether a change in the model makes the model more valid? Findings of this paper suggested a very high degree of facial validity of the variables from the initial F-TAM model. Twelve new variables, one new construct, and seven changes are suggested to the initial F-TAM model. Recommendations are made in for future studies on the bases of the findings.
