Abstract

If one wishes to identify the effects of information technology on organizational structure, strategy and performance, one must be able to characterize IT for operationalization purposes as a construct within a research framework. An initial requirement consists of developing and validating an instrument designed to measure an organization’s level of sophistication in the use and management of IT. A preliminary version of such an instrument was built to be applied in small manufacturing enterprises and tested with a sample of 101 organizations. The results of this study constitute a first step toward developing an understanding of IT sophistication and provide initial evidence for the reliability and validity of the proposed instrument.
