|dc.description.abstract||Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in the workplace are increasingly connecting employees to people and sources of information. As a result, this ICT connectivity has had both a positive and a negative impact on employee productivity. Existing literature suggests that further investigation on ‘self-control’ in the context of employee productivity is necessary. To address this we introduce the idea of ICT self-discipline – an individual’s ability to control their behaviours towards use of ICTs. We investigated ICT self-discipline through interviews and focus groups. That research led to the development of an empirically grounded instrument for measuring employee ICT self-discipline. Preliminary statistical results are promising and are returning reliable scores. This paper reports on part of a larger project that investigates the influence ICT self-discipline has on the moderating effect of ICT connectivity on employee productivity. Findings from this research contribute to both IS research and informs practice.||en_NZ|
