Abstract

In recent years, the current globalization has revolutionized transformed the landscape and ecosystem of the institution of higher education were demanding that the university transition from legacy system to Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system on enhancing university competitiveness. This shift requires the entire organization to be ready for change as early as the pre-implementation phase to ensure the successful implementation of ERP and resistance among staff is reduced. Past studies related to readiness for change are more focused on the ERP implementation phase for Human Resources, Finance and Manufacturing. However, studies on the individual readiness for change (IRFC) among public university staff in the pre-implementation phase are limited especially in Malaysian. Therefore, this study aims to analyze the IRFC factor among public university staff by combining the theoretical and empirical results of the study. Data analysis was obtained from a questionnaire from 117 public university staff who were in the pre-implementation phase of the Campus ERP project. The findings show that appropriateness, management support, change-specific efficacy and personal valence as contributing IRFC public university staff in on pre-implementation phase of Campus ERP project. Besides that, there are 24 items representing that four factors in measuring IRFC. In the future, studies can be done in a variety of perception such as students and other ERP systems such as Human Resource System and Financial System which are also a core system for the university. Additionally, this study leads for further study in implementation and post-implementation phase of the Campus ERP project.
