Abstract

This study attempts to look at the internal and external factors which result in improved interior design project management through the proposal and empirical validation of a theoretical model. The model incorporates three major dimensions: users’technology readiness, their perceptions of information system quality, and project management effectiveness. Sample data collected from 50 interior design companies located in north, central and southern urban cities in Taiwan (n = 497) were analyzed using structural equation modeling (SEM). Results showed that both users’ technology readiness and information system quality have positive effect on project effectiveness. Specifically, technology readiness influences project management effectiveness indirectly through information system quality, indicating that it is crucial for organizations to invest and enhance quality technological performance support tools in conjunction with fostering users’ acceptance and readiness of technology adoption and application.
