Creating an IT Enabled New Occupation for the Disabled: A Resource Bricolage Perspective

Shu-Ching Wang, Tzu-Chuan Chou
Abstract—The purpose of this study is to explore how can social enterprises, when providing employment services to the disabled, escape the past framework, put people with different type and level of disabilities together as a work team to perform high-tech and high-professional, high-complexity information technology work through IT enablement. And in this process, how to make highly heterogeneous social enterprise workers, disabled workers, and non-disabled workers collaborate, gain customer acceptance with high quality product, and to create market value and achieve continued development with unique business models. Creating an innovative social model that is different from the stereotyped sheltered employment of the disabled, provides new perspectives for disabilities services organizations on service concept, the value of the disabled, the connotation of employment services, and the social perspective toward disabilities.

Index Terms—Disabilities, IT enablement, resource bricolage, social innovation, social enterprise.
