Abstract

Multitasking using information systems (IS) often results in a blurring between personal and work lives. Prior literature overwhelmingly points to negative effects of traditional multitasking. Surprisingly, research on IS multitasking is relatively scarce. To address this gap, we hypothesize and test a research model of IS multitasking. Contrary to prior research, we find that IS multitasking yields significant positive outcomes. Our study has implications for attitudes toward IS multitasking, designing training activities, and multitasking systems.
