Dr. Haitham and team investigated the critical factors that affect the
implementation of electronic document management systems in government
organization. This is based on a comprehensive literature review and input from
an expert panel. They composed a list of 37 factors that were considered as
prerequisites of a successful electronic document management system implementation.
These factors were further grouped into six categories.
The six categories identified were technological readiness, top management
support, training and involvement, resource availability, system – related
factors as well as work environment and culture.
A questionnaire survey and factor
analysis confirmed that these categories were important for a successful
electronic document management system implementation. This
research has advanced the knowledge in the field by identifying and subsequently
reinforcing the importance of various EDMS success factors. The findings would
help organizations in performing self-check based on the CSFs identified so that
appropriate actions can be taken to overcome potential issues. In addition, the
findings and recommendations would provide insights to organizations on how to
properly frame their EDMS implementation strategies and activities in the right
perspective. The study helps agencies within the government in developing metrics
for evaluating the effectiveness of their EDMS and provides EDMS managers and
developers with a better basis for assessing system success.
