Abstract

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