Challenges and Adaptability of e-Governance in Private Higher Education Institutions in Oman
The aim of this paper is to assess the effect of factors on the adaptability of e-government in Oman's private higher education institutions. A survey was conducted to gather data from Muscat in Oman among academic staffs. Data from 274 respondents were analysed to test four hypotheses in this study. In order to test the hypotheses, SmartPLS 3.0 was used. Findings suggest that there is a positive and significant interaction between efficiency and effectiveness, financial challenges, administrative challenges and technical challenges with adaptability e-Governance. The most important outcomes are beneficial for legislators and policymakers in order to consider the challenges for e-government adaptability in the private higher educational institutes. We present in particular the adaptability of e-governance in the private higher educational institutes and offer a methodical study of the strategies by which academics engaged, with involvement in the overall decision-making in the private higher educational institutions, in the e-governance process, to enhance information and service delivery. This paper further provides the opportunity for the highest degree of accountability in private higher education institutions with the adaptation of e-government. In addition, we make clear guidelines for the most successful and efficient implementation of e-governance.
