Developing sustainable IT-related capabilities : instrument development and test
Prasad, Acklesh, Green, Peter , & Heales, Jon (2011) Developing sustainable IT-related capabilities : instrument development and test. In Proceedings of the 17th Americas Conference on Information Systems, AMCIS 2011, AIS eLibrary (Association for Information Systems), Detroit, Michigan, pp. 1-11.
Research has established that firms' IT-related capabilities at a point in time explain IT-related performance differences across firms. IT resources, however, are dynamic, and evolve at an exponential rate. This means we need to understand how to sustain firms' existing capabilities to leverage opportunities offered by new IT resources. Wet suggests a higher-level resource that can sustain firms' existing IT-related capabilities. Second, we report on the development of a valid and reliable measurement instrument for measuring this higher-level resource in four stages, which includes expert feedback and a field test. The validated instrument would be useful in extending the IT business value studies to investigate how firms can sustain their IT-related capabilities. This effort will provide a deeper understanding of how firms can secure sustainable IT-related business value from their acquired IT resources.
