conference paper description
This paper presents a validated construct that measures IT’s ability to support organisations’ core competencies. In doing so, it aims to address a call in IT literature to modify and validate a previously presented concept of IT support for core competencies. This research paper presents a rigorous instrument development process to modify the previously presented IT support for core competencies construct. Afterwards, this study utilises structural equation modelling (SEM) techniques and confirmatory factor analysis to validate the revised construct of IT support for core competencies. The result of this paper is a validated measurement model for IT support for core competencies that can be utilised in further research.
