It also describes a framework of social in hibitors of ICT project implementation. In the study, this framework mergeda number of sub-issues to construct a broader higher-level schema in information system planning, procurement and execution. Deploying a mixed method approach, the analyses highlighted eight sub-issues, which are, human resource, organizational environment, organizational culture. organizational directives, management process. interdepartmental coordination. organizational support and resistance to change.
