Description

High-performing information systems (IS) professionals harness creativity as they build systems to solve new and unstructured business problems. Psychology has developed useful scales and techniques for measuring creativity. However, "being creative" is not sufficient. IS professionals must also have confidence in their creative ability to succeed. The belief in one’s ability to be creative is termed creative self-efficacy (CreaSE). CreaSE is defined in the general business context, but scales are not thoroughly developed or refined. CreaSE has also never been studied in the IS context. We detail steps to develop and validate a theoretically-based measure of CreaSE as related to IS. Our process includes six datasets collected during refinement. Participants include business and IS students, online respondents, university professors, IS executives, and IS professionals. The validated instrument is a second-order formative measure with reflective first-order sub-constructs based on belief in cognitive ability, affect, domain knowledge, skills, and understanding of people.
