The expectation-confirmation theory (ECT) is very simple in its nature.
Employing expectation-confirmation theory, we contend that if an organization fulfills such expectations, their customers will be more attracted, loyal and relate a positive association with such organization.
As customer satisfaction deals with expectations, therefore, we draw upon the expectation-confirmation theory because it can be a conceptual foundation for explaining such relationships.
Expectation-confirmation theory is derived from the interaction of two processes: the development of expectations and the confirmation of results from the comparison of perceived outcomes against those expectations (Oliver 1977, 1980).
The model's framework draws on expectation-confirmation theory and relevant CSR literature by explicitly investigating how fans' perceptions of social responsiveness are influenced by their expectations.
In order to draw attention to the substantial difference between initial adoption and continued usage, he developed and empirically tested the information systems continuance model in a voluntary environment by adapting the expectation-confirmation theory. According to the IS continuance model, users, after their initial acceptance and use of a system, form opinions about which of their pre-acceptance expectations are confirmed, which is termed confirmation in the model.
