Literature review proposed different models based on TAM or their abridged versions. In this study, a team of five experts in IoT project adoption proposed factors crucial to successful IoT project implementation. Based on these, questionnaires were developed and sent to respondents who are senior officers at their respective selected companies. Data obtained was used to validate existing and proven TAM research model. Based on this, the study proposed a new model (IOT-TAM). Variables namely Perceived utility, Perceived ease of use, intrinsic variables and external organization were developed. First generation multivariate method of multiple regressions was used to assess reliability and validity of the model measures. © 2017 Universiti Putra Malaysia Press.
