RELIABLE AND VALID MEASUREMENT SCALES FOR DETERMINANTS OF THE WILLINGNESS TO ACCEPT KNOWLEDGE

Corro van Waveren, Leon Oerlemans, Tinus Pretorius

Abstract


Before any acquired knowledge is used or adds value to the receiving project (members), it must be accepted by its recipients, leading to an increase in their positive attitudes towards, and intended use of, the acquired knowledge. To be willing to accept knowledge, the receivingproject’s team members must perceive it to have value and be easy to use. The focus of this exploratory paper is to develop and empirically test relevant sub-dimensions of perceived value and ease-of-use. The sub- dimensions were identified through a literature review, and measurement scales were developed empirically by applying a well-established scale development methodology.
