Abstract

In today’s IT organizations, agile concepts are widespread, and the benefits are well recognized. However, currently, no general and widely accepted model for measuring agility in IT organizations exists. As organization design is one of the main enablers of agility, we develop a multi-item scale to measure the agility level of the organization design in today’s IT organizations. After conducting an expert review and running a pilot test with subsequent statistical analyses, we create a final scale that allows measuring the organizational agility level of IT organizations. The scale consists of 45 items across 12 factors and 4 higher-order constructs. The scale can be generally applied – for ex-ample, across industries or for companies of different sizes.

MEASURING THE ORGANIZATIONAL AGILITY LEVEL OF IT ORGANIZATIONS – A SCALE DEVELOPMENT

In today’s IT organizations, agile concepts are widespread, and the benefits are well recognized. However, currently, no general and widely accepted model for measuring agility in IT organizations exists. As organization design is one of the main enablers of agility, we develop a multi-item scale to measure the agility level of the organization design in today’s IT organizations. After conducting an expert review and running a pilot test with subsequent statistical analyses, we create a final scale that allows measuring the organizational agility level of IT organizations. The scale consists of 45 items across 12 factors and 4 higher-order constructs. The scale can be generally applied – for ex-ample, across industries or for companies of different sizes.
