Abstract

There has been a need to develop an industry-oriented e-commerce readiness assessment tool for the construction sector, especially in developing countries' context. This present study proposed such a framework that properly consider both the organizational and environmental e-readiness and pay more appropriately attention on information issue. A set of context-specific measurement items that is specific to the Vietnamese construction industry was developed. The proposed tool can assist well construction firms in developing countries in creating their own effective action plan towards the initial adoption of Internet-based B2B e-commerce into their business.
