An empirical investigation of the relationship between firm performance and system success by Peter Weill( Book )

3 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigates the relationship between system success asoperationalized by user information satisfaction (UIS) and variouseconomic measures of firm performance. The findings indicate asignificant positive but complex relationship between firmperformance and UIS. In particular, we found that it isinappropriate to aggregate UIS scores across individuals within afirm. The CEO, Controller, and Production Manager within a firmtended to have quite different UIS scores, resulting in low interraterreliabilities. We also found, that the association betweena respondent's UIS score and the measures of firm performancedepended heavily on the position of the respondent and theparticular performance measure employed

A short form measure of career orientations : a psychometric evaluation by Magid Igbaria( Book )

2 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reports on the results of two studies involving the developmentand construct validation of a short form of the Career Orientations Inventory. Theshort form was factor analytically derived and tested in two separate field studiesof IS employees. The short form measures nine career orientations: technical,managerial, autonomy, job security, geographic security, service, pure challenge,lifestyle and entrepreneurship. Extensive evidence of the reliability and validity ofthe measure was demonstrated in both studies (the development - Study 1- andthe validation - Study 2). A nomological network of the relationships betweencareer orientations and various individual difference and satisfaction measures wastested and provided additional evidence of the construct validity of the short formmeasure
Gender differences in the information systems managerial ranks : an assessment of discriminatory practices by Jack J Baroudi( Book )

2 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the extent to which gender discriminationis a force effecting the senior managerial ranks of the informationsystems (IS) occupation. While the employment trends of women inthe IS occupation is encouraging, we present data which suggeststhat IS is not immune to the problems of gender discrimination.Analyzing data gathered by the Society for Information Management(SIM), we find several serious problems suggestive ofdiscriminatory practices. First, a disproportionate majority ofsenior IS management is male. Second, women receive lower salariesthan men even when controlling for age, education, job level andtenure within the organization
A Short Form Measure of User Information Satisfaction A Psychometric Evaluation and Notes on Use by Jack J Baroudi( )

1 edition published in 2008 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study examines the psychometric properties ofthe short form measure of user information satisfaction(UIS) proposed by Ives, Olson and Baroudi [1983]. Basedon extensive testing the questionnaire appears to be areasonably valid and reliable measure. A framework forhow this measure can be used to detect and diagnoseproblems with user satisfaction is presented, andillustrated via two case studies. Finally,recommendations and suggestions are made regarding thefuture use of this and other measures of user informationsatisfaction
The Impact of Role Variables on Information System Personnel Outcomes An Empirical Investigation by Jack J Baroudi( )

1 edition published in 2008 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study examines the antecedents of job satisfaction,commitment and turnover intentions for 229 information systemsdevelopment personnel (ISDP) employed by nine companies withinseveral industries. The antecedents studied include boundaryspanning, role ambiguity and role conflict. A model of thesevariables is built and tested via path analysis. A secondaryanalysis is performed to explore the impacts of task differenceson the study variables. The task differences include analyticand programming tasks.The analyses revealed the following. Systems analysts spanmore boundaries than programmers. The major hazard faced bysystems analysts when they span boundaries is role conflict whichnegatively impacts their job satisfaction, commitment andintention to quit. The overall effect of boundary spanning is toreduce ISDP intention to quit despite its positive relationshipwith role conflict. Systems analysts and programmers are bothintolerant of role ambiguity. Role ambiguity is very detrimentalgreatly reducing ISDP job satisfaction, commitment and increasingISDP intention to quit. Role ambiguity is not related toboundary spanning nor is it related to analytic or programmingduties. Programmers are less committed than systems analysts andare more likely to express intentions to leave.The above information is used to make recommendations to ISmanagement. Finally, recommendations and directions aresuggested regarding future research

Misinformation in Mis Research The Problem of Statistical Power by Jack J Baroudi( )

1 edition published in 2008 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study reviews 57 MIS articles employing statistical inference testingpublished in leading MIS journals over the last five years. The statistical powerof the articles was evaluated and found on average to fall substantially below theaccepted norms. The consequence of low power is that it can lead tomisinterpretation of data and results. Collectively these misinterpretations resultin a body of MIS research that is built on potentially erroneous conclusions
The Information Systems Profession Myth or Reality? by Wanda J Orlikowski( )

1 edition published in 2015 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Much of the prior research into information systems (IS) workers hasassumed that they are professionals. In this paper we examine thecharacteristics of IS workers, IS work and the IS workplace, and suggest thatthis perspective is mistaken. Drawing on the sociological theory of professionsas a reference discipline we contend that IS professionalism is aninappropriate categorization, and that such a portrayal limits ourunderstanding of IS workers and their work.We argue in this paper that a more faithful and potentially usefulcharacterization is to view IS workers as members of an occupational group.Within this perspective, an understanding of the occupational culture, contextand history of IS workers is essential to an understanding of the ISoccupation. We examine and challenge some common myths regarding ISwork, technology and the IS workplace. We conclude by making somerecommendations for future research are provided, which should enhance ourunderstanding of IS workers as members of an occupation
The Management of Information Systems Occupations A Research Agenda by Jon Turner( )

1 edition published in 2008 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

It is accepted, generally, that Information Systems (IS)personnel have specific needs and present a unique set of problems formanagement. This position is challenged. It is our contention thatIS personnel exhibit relatively few differences when compared withother, similar, occupational groupings. This does not imply, however,that the unique aspects of IS work are unimportant, or that attentionneed not be focused on understanding the determinants of particularbehavioral outcomes. Rather, it suggests, that the effectivemanagement of the IS human resource may well rest more on generalmanagement practices than is commonly believed.This paper identifies managerial complaints about IS personneland provides a summary of research findings. A model, based onaccepted principles of worker behavior, intended to integrate much ofthe previous work, is presented. The IS staff is classified intocategories and propositions about each are developed. Specificresearch questions are formulated which, when answered, will providemore insight into the unique aspects of IS work and will identifymanagerial strategies for improving employee performance and wellbeing
An Examination of Gender Effects on the Career Success of Information Systems Employees by Jack J Baroudi( )

1 edition published in 2009 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this paper we examined the differences and similarities in the human capitalvariables of male and female information system (IS) workers and the affect thesedifferences had on job outcomes. The human capital variables studied included: age,education, organization and job tenure, and number of years in the IS occupation. Wefound that, even when controlling for the differences in human capital, women in ISstill tended to be employed at lower levels of the organization, made less money, andhad greater intentions to leave the organization
Studying Information Technology in Organizations Research Approaches and Assumptions by Wanda J Orlikowski( )

1 edition published in 2015 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We examined 155 behavioral information systems research articles published from 1983-1988and found that while this research is not rooted in a single overarching theoretical perspective itdoes exhibit a single set of philosophical assumptions about the nature of valid evidence andthe phenomena of interest to information systems researchers. We argue in this paper that thesephilosophical assumptions draw on the natural science tradition, and hence may not always beappropriate for inquiry into the relationships between information technology and people or organizations. In particular, we suggest that the development and use of information technologywithin organizations is inherently processual and contextual, and that these characteristics are notalways adequately captured by the philosophical assumptions prevalent in information systemsresearch. Positing social process as central to information systems phenomena asserts theimportance of studying the ongoing interactions among people, information technology andorganizations, as these are situated historically and contextually.We argue in this paper that the dominant research perspective in information systems research isnot well-equipped to deal with situated interactions over time, and propose additional researchphilosophies to augment the one currently favored by behavioral information systemsresearchers. We outline the features of such additional research perspectives, the interpretive andthe critical, providing empirical examples to illustrate how and when they may be useful. Weconclude that multiple research perspectives can usefully be employed within the informationsystems community to enrich understanding of behavioral information systems phenomena
