- Abstract: The purpose of this research is to explore the implementation and the use of IS (information systems) by micro-firms. Micro-firms are characterized by simple IS and low formalization. Recent research shows that bricolage occurs in small business IS. Bricolage as a theoretical framework provides a new perspective for small business and IS literature. In this research, we focus on micro-businesses (less than five employees) and explore if and how bricolage occurs in the implementation and the use of IS. To do so, we realized 64 semi-directive interviews with French owner-managers. Results show a distinction in the implementation process and the use of the IS.
