Effects of Professional Experience and Group Interaction on Information Requested in Analyzing IT Cases
Lehmann, Constance M.; Heagy, Cynthia D.
Journal of Education for Business, v83 n6 p347-354 Jul-Aug 2008
The authors investigated the effects of professional experience and group interaction on the information that information technology professionals and graduate accounting information system (AIS) students request when analyzing business cases related to information systems design and implementation. Understanding these effects can contribute to the success of the college classroom and corporate training learning environments. The results suggest that as the amount of professional experience increases, the number of information requests that match the information requests determined by a master panel ("matched" answers) also increase. In addition, higher numbers of matched answers by novices were associated with being in established groups prior to completing the experimental case individually. (Contains 6 tables.)
