Greta L. PolitesWelcome!

I  was recently tenured and promoted to the position of Associate Professor in the Department of Management & Information Systems at Kent State University, effective in Fall 2016. I have a Ph.D. in Business Administration from the University of Georgia, and currently teach undergraduate Systems Analysis & Design (MIS 34068), as well as the doctoral level courses in Multivariate Statistics (MIS 74017) and Structural Equation Modeling (MIS 84266).

My research focuses primarily on IS habits, resistance to new technology adoption, and the interplay between IS habits and organizational routines. I am currently listed among the top 100 IS researchers publishing in the AIS Senior Scholars Basket of 6 journals for the time period of 2009-2012. Altogether, my work has been published in MIS Quarterly (twice), European Journal of Information Systems, Journal of the AIS, Journal of Organizational Computing and Electronic Commerce, Communications of the ACM, and Drake Management Review. I have received several best paper and reviewer awards, including the 2012 Paper of the Year Award from MIS Quarterly, and the 2012 Best Reviewer Award from Information Systems Research.

I am currently a member of the AIS Special Interest Group on Adoption and Diffusion of Information Technology (SIGADIT), and the ACM Special Interest Group on Management Information Systems (SIGMIS). I have served as an associate editor for Information & Management since 2014, and have also been an associate editor for three different ICIS conference tracks: "Global and Cultural Issues in IS" (2012), "General IS Topics" (2013), and "Human Behavior and IS" (2014). I was also co-chair for the AMCIS 2014 SIGADIT minitrack, "The Dark Side of Post-Adoptive Use."
