- The purpose of the study was to explore the use of a theoretical model that links leadership practice, attitudes of business process outsourcing, and strategic intention to use cloud computing, while also exploring the individual relationships between leadership practice and intention to use cloud computing, leadership practice and attitudes toward business process outsourcing, and attitudes toward business process outsourcing and the strategic intention to use cloud computing. Five questions guided the study:
- 1. Does a theoretical model consisting of leadership practice, attitudes of business process outsourcing, and strategic intention of leadership to use cloud computing fit observed data?
- 2. Is there a relationship between leadership practice and strategic intentions of leadership to use cloud computing?
- 3. Is there a relationship between leadership practice and attitudes toward business process outsourcing?
- 4. Is there a relationship between attitudes toward business process outsourcing and strategic intention of leadership to use cloud computing?
- 5. Is there a relationship between leadership practice and strategic intentions of leadership to use cloud computing with attitudes toward business process outsourcing as a mediator?
