Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a complex ICT application. Adoption by organizations has been relatively slow. This paper assesses the contribution that research into information systems adoption and diffusion can make to
understanding and predicting the diffusion of RFID. The paper concludes that traditional research methods are inappropriate for such applications.
Information systems stage research and diffusion research offer morepromising models.
