Title: The impact of Intranet usage on middle manager's performance in Malaysian port industry: An empirical assesment

Authors: Norzaidi, M.D., Chong, S.C., Murali, R., and Intan Salwani, M.

Abstract:

This paper examines the impact of Intranet usage on middle managers’ performance in the port industry in Malaysia. Using the extended task-technology fit model, it investigates how certain factors [e.g. task characteristics, Intranet characteristics, task-technology fit, and Intranet usage] affect the job performance of port middle managers. Numerous organisations in the port industry, namely port authority, terminal operator, marine department, immigration department and royal customs and excise department constitute the population of interest. The mean test results suggest that the majority of middle managers believed that Intranet could improve their job performance. The result of structural equation modelling (SEM) indicates that task characteristics and Intranet characteristics significantly justified their variance on task-technology fit. Task technology fit; on the other hand, significantly predict usage and both significantly explained the variance on middle manager’s job performance. Suggestions are made on how the port industry could improve their Intranet adoption.

Keywords: Extended task-technology fit, Intranet usage, middle managers, port industry; Malaysia.

Title: Intranet Usage, User Satisfaction and Managerial Performance: A cause and effect investigation

Authors: Norzaidi, M.D., Chong, S.C. and Intan Salwani, M.

Journal: International Journal of Business and Systems Research

Publisher: Inderscience

Abstract:
Although prior studies have investigated the relationship between systems usage and user satisfaction, the results are rather mixed and inconclusive. To fill this vacuum, this paper investigates the cause and effect of Intranet usage and user satisfaction as well as their effects on performance of managers. Data was collected from 150 middle managers from various organizations in the Malaysian port industry. The structural equation modeling (SEM) results indicate that both usage and user satisfaction significantly predict managers’ performance. Intranet usage predicts user satisfaction and vice-versa with Intranet usage having more impact on user satisfaction and both are positively related. The results provide insights on how the Malaysian port industry and other organizations of a similar structure could improve their systems adoption.

Keywords: Intranet usage, User satisfaction, Perceived usefulness, Impact of Intranet usage on performance, systems, Malaysian port industry.

Bila Pertandingan Rekacipta Bermula


Bila pertandingan rekacipta bermula, keadaan menjadi agak 'riuh' sedikit. Almaklumlah, semua 'kelengkapan' perlu disiapkan dengan teratur, supaya tidak kelam-kabut. Poster 'dummy' akan diperiksa dengan teliti, takut-takut ada kesilapan nanti, susah hakim nak faham. Pamplet dah kami siapkan templete'nya' dan hanya perlu diubah beberapa ayat, serta gambar. Bila tiba masa booth-set-up, kami berdua akan tengokkan ruang yang ada pada booth. Kena urus betul-betul ruang yang diberikan. Sebagai contoh; di mana nak letakkan lap-top, di mana nak letakkan pamplet, buku, surat pengesahan, surat IP dan etc. Paling penting, gantung poster. Bila poster dah di pasang, kami akan letakkan alas meja. Cantik juga kalau ada alas meja sebab tak nampak 'kosong' aje. Keesokkan harinya pula, kami berdua akan bergerak dari rumah ke tempat pameran lebih awal untuk set-up booth kali kedua. Kali ini kami bawa semua 'peralatan' pameran. Kena 'decorate' sedikit. Masa untuk 'decorate' tak lama, hanya 15-30 minit aje. Lepas semua telah tersedia, kami akan berehat sebentar dan lihat-lihatkan booth rakan-rakan lain sebelum pintu dibuka untuk orang awam. Kebiasaannya, pameran untuk orang awam bermula pada jam 10.00 pagi. Masa tu, hakim sudah mula menjalankan tugas mereka. Apa yang perlu kami lakukan ialah menunggu di booth masing-masing bagi menerima kunjungan 'hakim' dan orang awam sepanjang hari.

Berebut Jadi Agen

Kisah ini benar-benar berlaku sewaktu di Malaysia Technology Expo 2007. Ada seorang yang mengaku agen, meminta butiran-butiran produk yang kami pamerkan. Dengan bersungguh-sungguh dia menyatakan bahawa 'seseorang' dari universiti kami yang memperkenalkan produk kami kepada beliau. Beliau sempat menyakinkan, kalau produk kami dibenarkan untuk dipasarkan di bawah syarikat beliau, maka kami akan mendapat bayaran yang 'lumayan'. Pada masa yang sama datang seorang lagi agen yang duduk diam mendengar 'ceramah' agen yang tadi. Saya dan Intan hanya menganggukkan kepala, tanda sangat setuju. Beliau terus menerus cuba menyakinkan kami supaya produk kami dipasarkan melalui syarikatnya. Agen kedua pula masuk berbincang, juga cara yang sama, iaitu akan memberikan kadar bayaran yang 'lebih' menarik dari agen pertama, jika kami bersetuju memasarkan produk kami bersama syarikat beliau. Kecoh juga, bila kami terpaksa mendengar kedua-dua agen bercakap dalam satu masa mengenai cara pemasaran efektif, cara pembayaran royalti dan macam-macam benda...sampai kami berdua kata, okaylah macam ni, kami akan minta IRDC uruskan. Nanti kita tengok syarikat mana yang akan berikan perkhidmatan terbaik. Kami saling bertukar business card, dan berjabat tangan. Fuh...lama juga berurus niaga di "pertandingan rekacipta". So, pertandingan rekacipta merupakan medan berniaga, kalau ada rezeki produk kita akan dikomersilkan.

Apa Yang Menarik di Pertandingan Rekacipta

Dah banyak kali saya dan Intan masuk pertandingan rekacipta. Dari Dewan Sri Budiman, PWTC, KLCC, sampai ke Geneve, Pittsburgh, Seoul; kami dah sampai. Seronok ke pergi pertandingan rekacipta? Ramai yang dok bertanya saya soalan yang sama berulang-ulang kali. Kalau nak tau, cuba masuk IID, then, baru tahu best ke tak pertandingan rekacipta. Bagi saya pertandingan rekacipta melatih saya untuk bertutur secara 'korporat' sebab kebanyakkan pengunjung yang datang mempunyai latarbelakang yang berbeza. Ada pelajar tingkatan dua, pelajar universiti, pelajar darjah tiga dan ada bukan pelajar pun. Kalau orang korporat, lain cara bercakapnya. Asyik minta kad kita, sebab nak promote product kita dengan syarikat beliau atau syarikat lain. Sebab tu, kalau masuk pertandingan rekacipta, jangan lupa print business-card banyak-banyak sebab ramai yang akan minta. Mungkin kita tak perasan yang produk kita ada potensi untuk dipasarkan, tapi ahli korporat ini dan yang itu pula yang berkenan. Jangan main-main dengan mereka sebab, bila tengok kad depa, tertulis...Datuk...Tan Sri...hah macam tak percaya, tapi AlhamduLillah.... Ada juga yang meminta kita menulis artikel dalam majalah atau buletin jabatan mereka. Rezeki di sini amat murah sekali tak termasuk pingat yang 'mungkin' akan dimenangi. Begitulah serba sedikit cerita saya di pertandingan rekacipta. InsyaAllah kalau ada kelapangan, kita sambung lagi cerita...

Geran Penyelidikan

Kita sekarang amat bertuah kerana dah ada banyak geran penyelidikan yang ditawarkan oleh kementerian, badan kerajaan, swasta dan universiti sendiri. Fundamental Research Grant Scheme (FRGS) sebagai contoh, di tawarkan sebanyak 2 kali setahun oleh Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi. E-Science pula diwujudkan bagi menggantikan projek geran IRPA, di buka permohonannya sepanjang masa oleh Kementerian Sains, Teknologi dan Inovasi (MOSTI). Permohonan boleh dibuat melalui laman web MOSTI. Paling terbaru, UiTM menawarkan sejumlah wang untuk penyelidikan jangka pendek bagi menggalakkan pensyarah dan pensyarah muda supaya aktif dalam penyelidikan. Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) pula menawarkan sejumlah wang untuk menjalankan kajian dalam pelbagai bidang dan ianya dibuka kepada semua pensyarah UiTM. Felda juga turut menyediakan sejumlah wang untuk penyelidikan di kawasan Felda. Saya berasa amat bertuah kerana dengan geran penyelidikan ini akan menggalakkan lagi lebih banyak aktiviti penyelidikan dikalangan pensyarah. Untuk keterangan lanjut mengenai geran penyelidikan ini; sila lawati laman web: http://www.uitm.edu.my/ dan terus ke portal Institut Penyelidikan, Pembangunan dan Pengkomersilan (IRDC) di http://www.irdc.uitm.edu.my/

Buku-buku Yang Telah Diterbitkan

AlhamduLillah, setelah beberapa tahun menceburkan diri dalam kerjaya pendidikan, saya telah berjaya menerbitkan beberapa buah buku. Terima kasih di atas galakkan/sokonganpadu dari rakan-rakan dan keluarga yang tercinta. Saya tidak mahu hanya tertumpu pada satu bidang sahaja. Oleh yang demikian, selain penglibatan dalam pertandingan rekacipta, penulisan artikel dalam high-impact factor jurnal dan pembentangan kertas kerja di seminar kebangsaan/antarabangsa, penulisan buku juga menjadi 'hobi' kuat saya. AlhamduLillah, setiap manuskrip yang dihantar ke meja koordinator UPENA; dinilai dan diperkemaskan bagi menghasilkan buku yang bermutu serta sesuai dibaca di semua peringkat. Niat saya menulis buku lebih kepada berkongsi ilmu pengetahuan dan jauh sekali mengejar nama dan wang ringgit. Sebab itu, saya sentiasa menggalakkan budaya penulisan dikalangan pensyarah terutamanya yang masih belajar di peringkat PhD, kerana ilmu yang dikaji diperingkat ini mengandungi 'significant contribution to new knowledge' yang tinggi mutunya disamping maklumat yang terkini. Saya berharap, semoga usaha ini dapat diteruskan bagi menjana masyarakat yang berilmu pengetahuan. Senarai buku-buku yang telah diterbitkan;
  1. Study Guide to Portfolio Management, 2005, Norzaidi Mohd Daud, Jaafar Mohamad, Zulkifli Mohamed, RM 25.00, UPENA

Articles under-review


Articles under-review. Begitulah bila kita tulis dalam CV, apabila artikel kita masih dalam 'perhatian reviewers'. Buat pengalaman saya, masa untuk menunggu bagi proses penyemakan akan mengambil masa 3-6 bulan. Tempoh ini pula bergantung kepada berapa 'bagusnya' artikel yang dihantar. Jika chief-in-editor, tak berapa berkenan dengan artikel yang dihantar, maka tempoh 'menjawab' nya agak lambat sedikit. Alasan yang paling baik diberikan oleh chief-in-editor ialah-artikel ini tidak bertepatan dengan tema jurnal berkenaan. Kadang-kadang memang benarnya artikel yang disaring itu tidak bertepatan dengan tema jurnal. Kalau -chief-in-editor berkenan, dia akan hantar e-mail dengan message, we accept your article! Masa tu, tak tahu nak cakap, berapa seronoknya bila artikel kita diterima untuk diterbitkan. Bukan senang nak terbitkan artikel dalam high impact factor, sebab acceptance rate-nya kecil betul. Sebab itu ada sesetengah IPT di Malaysia yang menghadiahkan-saguhati kepada pensyarah yang berjaya menerbitkan artikel mereka dalam high-impact factor journal. Kebiasaannya, reviewers akan bagi komen masing-masing, dan kita diarahkan membuat beberapa ammendments sebelum artikel itu di terbitkan. Kalau di Emerald, penulis dikehendakki mengisi borang JAR bagi memberi kuasa kepada mereka untuk menerbitkan artikel berkenaan tanpa masalah IP di antara penulis dan penerbit. AlhamduLillah, buat masa sekarang ada beberapa artikel saya masih dalam under-review. Di antaranya ialah,

  • The impact of Intranet usage on middle managers' performance in the Malaysian port industry: An empirical assessment, International Journal of Information Technology and Decision Making-ISI ranked jurnal

  • Towards a holistic model in invetsigating the effects of Intranet usage on managerial performance: A study on Malaysian port industry-Maritime Policy & Management, ISI ranked jurnal

So, tengoklah kalau ada rezeki, dapat terbit lagi beberapa artikel dalam high-impact factor jurnals.

Meeting of New Media at Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia

Semalam saya dijemput untuk turut serta dalam mesyuarat pertama "Pelancaran Geran Penyelidikan Media Baru" di Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia (SKMM) di Cyberjaya. Boleh dikatakan semua IPT turut dijemput bagi mendengar taklimat yang disampaikan oleh Datuk Dr. Halim Shafie, Pengerusi SKMM. Lebih rancak lagi mesyuarat ini dihadiri oleh pengerusi badan-badan utama dalam media dan telekomunikasi seperti Dato' Badlisham Ghazali, CEO, Multimedia Development Corporation (MDC), dan Dato' Borhanuddin Osman, Executive Director, Communications and Multimedia Content Forum of Malaysia. InsyaAllah, hasil dari mesyuarat ini, SKMM akan menawarkan sejumlah geran penyelidikan dalam media/teknologi/multimedia/kommunikasi kepada seluruh IPT di Malaysia. Geran penyelidikan yang dicadangkan akan melibatkan perutukan kepada penyelidikan sains sosial selain sains teknologi.

Manuskrip Terbaru-Pertandingan Rekacipta

AlhamduLillah, dalam 'dok' sibuk dengan tugasan harian, saya berjaya menyiapkan sebuah manuskrip terbaru yang bertajuk Pertandingan Rekacipta. Sememang saya dah mula menulis manuskrip ini semenjak kembalinya dari pengajian PhD dahulu, di UiTM Johor. Kalaulah manuskrip ini diterima, ia merupakan buku akademik saya yang ke-9. Saya banyak menerima pertanyaan mengenai pertandingan rekacipta, maka di situ timbullah rasa saya untuk menulis sebuah buku yang memberikan gambaran terperinci mengenai pertandingan rekacipta. Sememangnya pertandingan rekacipta bukan seperti perbentangan kertas kerja di seminar antarabangsa atau kebangsaan. Ianya lebih tertumpu pada bagaimana produk yang dihasilkan mempunyai 'novelty' dan memberi menafaat kepada masyarakat, dan negara, disamping potensinya untuk dikomersilkan. Secara amnya, manuskrip ini menyediakan pelbagai informasi mengenai pertandingan rekacipta iaitu;
  • Mengenali pertandingan rekacipta
  • Jenis pertandingan rekacipta
  • Sistem pengadilan
  • Penganjur pertandingan rekacipta
  • Piala dan pingat
  • Pembiayaan pertandingan rekacipta
  • Kategori produk untuk pertandingan
  • Contoh penyelidik yang berjaya di pertandingan rekacipta

Saya bersyukur dengan pertolongan-Nya, kerana saya masih lagi dapat menyambung kerja bakti dan mengembangkan sedikit ilmu. Terima kasih di atas sokongan terutamanya dari rakan-rakan di UiTM Johor, FBM dan FACT. Saya mendoakan semoga anda beroleh kejayaan di dunia mahupun di negeri akhirat. Amin.

Syabas saya ucapkan juga kepada 'co-authors' buku ini; Ustaz PM Abdul Halim, Ustazah Che Zuina dan Ustaz Kamarulzaman yang juga bersama-sama menyiapkan buku ini. Kami juga ingin mengucapkan ribuan terima kasih serta sokongan daripada semua pihak yang terlibat secara langsung atau tidak langsung dalam penerbitan buku ini.

Apa yang nilai oleh external examiner?

Terdapat beberapa perkara yang perlu diambil perhatian oleh phd candidate dalam penulisan thesis mereka. Di antara perkara penting yang perlu diutamakan dalam penulisan thesis ialah;
  • a. research methodology
  • b. presentation
  • c. analysis
  • d. singnificance of findings
  • e. possibility of publication
  • f. coverage of subject matter
  • g. knowledge & skills
  • h. original contribution to knowledge
Contoh comment external examiner bagi phd saya;
  • External 1-Professor dari USA
  • I believe that the research techniques adopted by the candidate are suitable and appropriate. I am satisfied with the amount of data collected, taking into account the level of difficuly of the topic and the availability and accessibility of relevent information and statistical data in the thesis.
  • The candidate shows evidence of original contribution in the analysis and conclusion drawn from the data gathered. Credit is given to the candidate who has intelligently applied appropriate principles and practices relevent to the topic under the thesis study. Credit is also given to the candidate's ability to analyze critically the data collected and to write a coherent and analytical thesis from the data collected.
  • External 2-Professor dari Australia
  • The study is quantitative in nature and highly appropriate for perception studies. The research framwork and strategy are well formulated with proper safe-guards in regards to biasness. The candidate has been consistent and has followed research protocols in developing the research propositions for testing. Equally the analysis and the results have been developed and presented professionally and accurately. This highlights the candidates clear understanding of research techniques.
InsyaAllah dengan sedikit panduan ini diharapkan rakan-rakan yang masih menulis thesis akan dapat menggunakan panduan ini bagi menghasilkan penulisan thesis yang baik.

Saya juga syorkan anda merujuk kepada beberapa buah PhD thesis di perpustakaan UiTM iaitu:

  • Prof. Madya Dr. Mohamed Hashim Muhd Kamil-Literature Review
  • Prof Dr. Fauziah Nordin-Methodology
  • Prof. Madya Dr. Tengku Jamaluddin-Methodology

External dan Internal examiners for Phd

Ramai yang bertanya kepada saya mengenai external dan internal examiners bagi PhD. External examiner kebiasaannya full profesor dan jumlahnya dua orang dan seorang internal examiner (tidak full profesor pun tak apa). Di tempat belajar saya dahulu, external examiners perlu full profesor dalam bidang yang kita kaji dan semestinya bukan dari Malaysia. External examiners saya seorang dari USA dan seorang dari Australia. Kebiasaanya, masa untuk memeriksa thesis disyorkan selama dua minggu, walaubagaimanapun proses pemeriksaan dari external examiners memakan masa lebih dari tempoh yang diberikan (mungkin 1-2 bulan)kerana kita memahami bahawa profesor ini sibuk dengan kerja harian mereka. Setiap external examiner akan dibayar oleh pihak universiti. Cadangan setelah penilaian yang diberikan oleh mereka, ringkas dan selalunya "menyeronokkan" hati berbanding internal examiner. Begitulah pendapat orang-orang terdahulu yang sudah memakai Dr. pada nama mereka. PhD candidate akan diberikan surat cadangan pembetulan dengan menyatakan tempoh pembetulan. Sebagai contoh 3 bulan, 6 bulan atau buat balik! 3 bulan adalah pembetulan minor di mana PhD candidate perlu menambahkan literature yang terkini, betulkan 'grammer' serta restructure beberapa chapters. Bagi 6 bulan pembetulan, PhD candidate perlu membetulkan 'model' / questionnaire/objectives/hypotheses/methodology dan gap of knowledge. Bagi kategori yang terakhir; buat balik tu...faham-faham aje....lari terus dari concept, model, dan methodology. Kena start from zero...Bila dah siap pembetulan, PhD candidate kena hantar ke pemeriksa yang dilantik oleh universiti, dan jika mereka berpuas hati dengan pembetulan yang dibuat, maka 2 naskah thesis yang telah dibetulkan akan dihantar ke pusat pengajian siswazah untuk mendapatkan tandatangan senat universiti. Lepas tu baru dapat topi burger...konvo le..

New publication: Award Winning Social Science Research Papers

AlhamduLillah, semalam saya mendapat pruf 1 dari UPENA, bagi memastikan maklumat serta letak-atur gambar dalam buku ini sempurna. Buku ini mengumpul hasil penyelidikan yang pernah memenangi anugerah di peringkat kebangsaan dan antarabangsa. InsyaAllah, buku ini akan diterbitkan dalam dua-tiga bulan lagi. Saya amat berterima kasih kepada Intan Salwani Mohamed (pensyarah perakaunan UiTM Malaysia) dan Fahmi Abdul Rahim (pelajar PhD FBM dan bekas pensyarah UiTM Johor) kerana dapat menyumbangkan beberapa bab untuk dimuatkan dalam buku ini. Artikel yang terdapat buku ini akan dapat memberi serba sedikit panduan kepada penyelidik dan pelajar peringkat sarjana/PhD bagi menghasilkan kertas kerja yang baik dan diiktiraf kualitinya. Saya juga ingin mempelawa rakan-rakan yang pernah memenangi anugerah penyelidikan untuk menyumbangkan artikel untuk dijadikan Award Winning Social Science Research Papers Volume 2. Selamat menulis.

Apakah Jurnal Berimpak Tinggi?

Isu jurnal berimpak tinggi dalam seminggu dua ini amat hangat juga. Ini adalah kerana ada dikalangan kita yang masih kurang faham mengenai jurnal berwasid berimpak tinggi. Mungkin penerangan yang disampai kepada kita semua masih lagi samar-samar; apa yang pastinya kita sememangnya masih keliru di antara jurnal berwasid berimpak tinggi, jurnal antarabangsa, jurnal professional etc. Bagai rakan-rakan kita yang telah mencapai taraf research university (RU), jurnal berwasid berimpak tinggi merupakan satu kemestian. Ada sebuah universiti tempatan turut mensyaratkan seorang pensyarah biasa menghasilkan sekurang-kurangnya satu artikel dalam jurnal berwasid berimpak tinggi, jika tidak SKT mereka akan terdapat komen mudah-kurang perform. Ini menunjukkan penerbitan dalam jurnal berimpak tinggi amat penting/syarat utama dalam meletakkan samada seseorang pensyarah itu perform atau tidak disamping, beberapa kriteria lain pengajaran, kepakaran, aktiviti universiti/masyarakat, pertandingan rekacipta etc. Syarat penerbitan dalam jurnal berimpak tinggi juga merupakan salah satu kriteria penting dalam menentukan samada sesebuah universiti untuk telah mencapai RU dan seterusnya sebagai APEX universiti. Oleh yang demikian, bagi memastikan kita memahami maksud jurnal berwasid berimpak tinggi, sila layari: http://intansalwani.blogspot.com/. InsyaAllah segala pertanyaan/persoalan berkaitan dengan isu ini amat saya alu-alukan.

Article accepted for publication- International Journal of Innovation and Learning-ISI Ranked Journal



AlhamduLillah, today I received a good news from Prof. Dr. Binshan Lin, Chief-in-Editor of International Journal of Innovation and Learning (IJIL), an impact factor journal, that our article is accepted for publication. Detail on the article is disscuss as follows;


Title: THE EFFECT OF HUMAN RESOURCE PRACTICES IN BUILDING LEARNING ORGANIZATIONS: EVIDENCE FROM MALAYSIAN MANUFACTURING FIRMS

Authors: Norashikin, H., Noormala A.I., Fauziah, N., Norzaidi, M.D., and Chong, S.C.


Abtsract

It is widely acknowledged that a company can gain competitive advantage through effective human resource practices. Recognizing the link between human resource practices and the concept of learning organization, the current study attempts to examine their interrelationships which have received very little research attention to date. The statistical results obtained from 37 manufacturing firms indicate significant positive relationships between human resource practices and learning organization. This study suggests that a learning organization can be developed by rewarding desirable learning behaviors when individual performance improved. Subsequently, it also aids organizations in the design of a performance management scheme that supports the development of individuals in organizations.

Keywords: Human resource practices; learning organization; manufacturing firms; innovation, learning.
