 A MODEL OF INDIVIDUAL COPING WITH INFORMATIONTECHNOLOGY CHALLENGES TO IDENTITY 
 
Introduction
2
IT exposes individuals to new ways of interacting and doing work 
(Walsham, 1998)
It may redefine people’s roles and challenge theiridentities 
(Walsham,2000),
IT may bring new meanings, replacing or discarding others that arecentral to people’s positive view of themselves.
Tensions between old and news skills call for answers to thequestions “
Who am I, what do I stand for and how should I act 
?”
(Sveningsson and Larsson 2006).
Such situations may lead to feelings of frustration which eventually prompt individuals to employ efforts to deal with the identity-threatening situation
 
Identity in Organization sciences

In IS, there is a substantive and rich body of research that examines theimpact of IT on individuals, groups and organizations
(e.g. Beaudry and Pinsonneault,2005,)
However, the theoretical accounts developed so far have largely ignoredidentity as an analytical category.
This is somewhat surprising given the importance of the concept inother disciplines
Identity has been employed to explain a range of organizational behaviors: cooperation
(Dutton et al. 1994),
commitment
(Sass and Canary 1991),
motivation
(Knippenberg 2000),
communication patterns
(Korver and van Ruler 2003),
 resistance
(Sveningsson and Larsson 2006),
organizational change
(McInnes et al. 2006),
Leadership
(Alvesson and Willmott 2002) ,
etc
