This, in turn, should improve relationships between information systems staff and end users. Despite the potential benefits to an organization of user development of applications, there are many risks associated with it that may lead potentially to dysfunctional consequences for the organization’s activities. These risks result from a potential decrease in application quality and control as individuals with little information systems training take responsibility for developing and implementing systems of their own making (Cale, 1994) and include ineffective use of monetary resources, threats to data security and integrity, solving the wrong problem (Alavi & Weiss, 1985-1986), unreliable systems, incompatible systems, and use of private systems when organizational systems would be more appropriate (Brancheau & Brown, 1993).

001), indicated that there was a significant multivariate effect for being the developer. Each of the hypotheses was then addressed using univariate F-tests (see Table 2). 01.

Participants were asked to provide both the name of the cheapest firm and its cost. The questions were piloted by four end users, and slight changes were made to clarify them. The equivalent of the two sets of questions in terms of difficulty and time to complete also were confirmed by measuring the time taken to answer each set using the four applications created during piloting of the task. 3% were female (52 males, 107 females). 7. 5 years experience using spreadsheets (with a range from 0 to 21 years).
