Despite significant work in post-adoption IT use, scant attention has been given to the phenomenon where users proactively innovate using IT. A proactive user behavior voluntarily steps out of the defined job requirements and creates a new application of IT in the work. This paper conceptualizes the notion of innovating with IT (IwIT) as a post-implementation behavior. It refers to user-initiated process or product innovations that are proactively performed with new IT in the work. We draw on the proactivity literature to develop a model in which we analyze how 'slack resources' provided to users might facilitate IwIT. Using an analytical induction method, we explore and modify the propositions that were developed based on the literature. This paper contributes to IS research, specifically to post adoption behaviors, by studying the important yet understudied phenomenon of innovating with IT. © 2015 IEEE.
