Abstract: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is a very popular trend in the corporate world despite some paradoxical characteristics and scarce research on this topic. Drawing on the theoretical lens of workarounds, this paper proposes a dynamic explanation of BYOD-enabled workarounds. Specifically, we develop a conceptual model representing the multi-level process model that occurs when an IS-enabled practice enacted with an organizational device is replaced by a BYOD-enabled workaround. We claim that three outcomes are then possible: status quo, reverting to the organizational practice, or legitimizing the BYOD-enabled workaround as the new organizational practice. Moreover, we explain the conditions that regulate the proposed model. In addition to addressing an important research gap, this study clarifies how and why several employers feel that they cannot prevent employees from using a BYOD approach. If a mix of conditions is already in place, there isn’t indeed much to do, but to embrace the reality.
