The main purpose of this study is to identify the factors affecting personnel e-Learning acceptance. We used self-efficacy and perceived playfulness as independent variables to extended Technology Acceptance Model in an e-Learning contort. Perceived playfulness is the one of the important personal intrinsic motivational factors which could enlarge the understanding process of technology acceptance in the personal perspective. Questionnaires were collected from 94 respondents who experienced e-Learning systems that L Corporation provided. This study developed and empirically tested a model representing the relationship by using Structural Equation Model among factors which are: perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, perceived playfulness, self-efficacy and attitudes. Also we measured affective and cognitive attitude because, most psychometric literature explain attitude has two different dimensions which are affective and cognitive. The major findings of the study are summarized as follows. Firstly, the higher the perceived usefulness the more affected the behavioral intention was to use as well as attitude to be positive. Secondly, as much as perceived playfulness more affected the perceived ease of use as well as self-efficacy. Finally, the perceived ease of use and self-efficacy are not significantly affected attitude while they are affected perceived usefulness and perceived playfulness.

Information system(IS) development projects are mostly unique in terms of the characteristics of projects such as project requirements, customers, project members, and development environment. Therefore, it is very hara by nature, to manage the development process systematically. In addition the long-term enlarged scale projects with more complexity and specificity required have brought in much more risk factors than before. The paper recognized risk factors in IS development projects and measured the importance of those risk factors using the AHP(Analytical Hierarchy Process) method. The results can be used in the risk management of IS development projects.

The Journal of Information Systems, volume 15, issue 2, 2006, Pages 95~123
It is needed to evaluate information systems actively which has already developed to improve future performance of the organization and foster the activation of information system. The introduction or development of information system also can bring about a organizational success. To measure exactly the organizational performance of information systems, it is needed to develop a new valuation model for a specific information system from a objective pint of view, as well as to equip a standard methodology using BSC measurement. The information system valuation from a objective point of view is of importance as the basic information for the decision to obtain information system. This paper takes aim at investigating a new information system valuation model and developing a information system valuation system using case-based reasoning for predicting currency value of information system in each organization. A new information system valuation system is developed as a web-enabling base. Using this, users are able to estimate the value of specific information system on a real time efficiently.

The Journal of Information Systems, volume 15, issue 2, 2006, Pages 125~152
The purpose of this study is to explore the process of knowledge creation at the infusion stage in IT adoption. Because of the lack of the prior research on the infusion and the process of individual knowledge creation we employed Grounded Theory Method which is a qualitative method for building a theory inductively. Collecting and analyzing data from 13 knowledge workers including medical doctors, project managers, and bankers, a process model is developed through the serial process of open, axial and selective coding. We conceptualized the knlowledge creation at the infusion stage as a social process where knowledge is expressed through private and public justifications. This study also found that organizational politics, top management supports, and organization strategy are important factors facilitating the knowledge creation process.

This study first conceptualizes and investigates five dimensions of SCM activities, such as organizational capacity, revitalization support collaboration, appraisal and responsibility, and information system activities. Second, this study develops three dimensions of a supply chain structure, and proposes a balanced scorecard (BSC) model in order to measure business performance. And then, this study establishes too research hypotheses as follows: H1. The SCM activities varies with the supply chain structure. H2. The management performance varies with the supply chain structure. In the questionnaire survey for empirical analysis, this study carefully selected 809 of companies in Korea. We conducted a survey by mail and collected 127 data. Out of 127 data we actually used 103 responses for statistical analysis. After conducting statistical analysis, we could find the results as followed: 1) The supply chain structure was classified into three networks through a clustering procedure, such as supply network, conversion network, and distribution network, and these networks were used to testify hypotheses. As a result the effect of SCM activities varies according to three networks and especially, the companies in distribution network were more active than those in supply and conversion networks doing SCM activities. 2) We may conclude that business performance varies with three networks, and distribution network achieves better performance than supply and conversion networks do.

The purpose of this study is (1) to develop a conceptually integrated model of IT capability comprising hierarchically structured lower capabilities, and (2) to investigate the impacts of IT capability on firm performance. To do this, the study defined IT capability as a third-order factor model and identified three conceptual dimensions of IT capability IT resource integrating capability, IT infrastructure flexibility, and IT personnel expertise. The relationships between IT capability and firm performance are assessed with 243 firm level data using LISREL. The results of confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) demonstrated that the constructs is highly reliable and valid. Further, we found that IT capability not directly but indirectly affects firm performance through the impacts on business processes.

The Journal of Information Systems, volume 15, issue 2, 2006, Pages 247~270
This study identifies communication patterns of groups using Instant Messenger for their group decision-making, and examines how these patterns are associated with creative solutions to problems. Our research suggests that certain communication behavior of groups, when appropriately organized, can be of help in enhancing creative production of outcomes. A qualitative study was conducted on communication patterns based on an analysis of text-based electronic conversation protocols. Specifically this research tried to overcome existing studies on electronic groups by focusing on interactive process of communication among participants. The major study conclusions are: (1) Satisfation of group decision-making may depend on the process or sequence of discussion among group members with Instant Messenger. That is, proper interactive responses and appropriate control of the discussion process are essential to obtain a high level of performance. (2) It is important to ]mike discuss rules based on meta-cognitive and interactive protocols in the early stage. Explicit rules relating to internal group processes as well as communication medium use are even more important to groups with Instant Messenger than face-to-face groups.
