Abstract

This chapter addresses the conceptual and measurement issues related to the study of information technology capability (ITC) in small to medium businesses that focus on exports. The authors review the concept of ITC and its components and reports on the construction and psychometric assessment of a measure of ITC. The authors develop a multi-dimensional scale showing strong evidence of reliability and validity in samples from export-focused SMEs based in Mainland China. Finally, this chapter demonstrates nomological validity by examining the relationship between ITC and export-focused SMEs’ performance.
