This study proposes that differing levels of EUC activity will be associated with differing levels of job characteristics and computer related job outcomes. The study(More)
user computing (EUC), as an information systems innovation, has started gaining wider acceptance in the work place. Utilization of end user computing technology can enable users to access and/or produce needed information more timely fashion than was ~;ss;ble twenty or thirty years ago. EUC has consistently ranked as one of the top ten issues faced by MIS(More)
