A MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENT FOR INDIVIDUAL INFORMATION COMPETENCY IN AN ENTERPRISE INFORMATION ENVIRONMENT

Chui Young Yoon, Keon Myung Lee

Abstract

An instrument that can efficiently measure individual information competency is presented to develop and manage the information application ability of individual working in an enterprise information environment. The measurement items are extracted from the major components of a competency. By factor analysis and reliability analysis, a 14-item instrument is proposed to entirely measure individual information capability. The tool’s application and utilization are discussed through a case study and the presentation of its results.
