IT-based business initiatives, such as ERP and BPR, require high computer self-efficacy among employees because such changes require large-scale use of computers. Computer self-efficacy is affected by many internal and external factors; for instance, personality or organizational culture. While extensive literature exists on how psychological and sociological factors affect a person’s self-efficacy, almost no research has been done on how organizational culture could influence employees’ computer self-efficacy. This chapter examines the relationship between organizational culture and employees’ self-efficacy for a sample of 352 subjects. The results, from multiple regression and discriminant analysis, show teamwork and information flow contribute most to employees’ computer self-efficacy.
