This paper investigates how political and cultural influences impact the diffusion and use of information technology (IT) in the People's Republic of China. Five separate interviews were conducted with individuals in five state-owned businesses. Based upon our interviews, it appears that the role and use of information technology in these organizations depends largely upon societal spectrums such as politics, culture, economic status, and the educational levels of the employees.
