This paper is based upon a communication model of the rationales for ERP adoption. It focusses mainly on the themes of, rationality, values, and domination that underlie the model. The potential impact on the organisations that adopt them, in terms of their mission and the people that work within them are critically examined. Conclusions reached in the paper are that risks to organisational mission and work-life issues may be posed by the ERP adoption process.
