Abstract

This paper examines the impact of Intranet usage on managers' performance in
the port industry in Malaysia. Using the task-technology fit model, it
investigates how certainfactors (e.g. task requirements, Intranet functionalities,
task-technology fit, and Intranet usage) affect the job performance of port
managers. The mean test results suggest that the majority of managers believed
that Intranet could improve their job performance. The results of structural
equation modelling (SEM) indicate that task requirements and Intranet
functionalities significantly justified their variance on task-technology fit. Task
technology fit, on the other hand, significantly predicts Intranet usage and
both significantly explained the variance on manager's job performance.
Suggestions are made on how the port industry could improve their Intranet
adoption.
