CONSTRUCT VALIDATION OF A MEASURE OF ENVIRONMENTAL SCANNING FOR THE SOUTH AFRICAN OCCUPATIONAL LEARNING CONTEXTDownload This Article
Environmental scanning is a very critical process which must precede the implementation of occupational learning programmes in South Africa. The process could help organisations to enhance their strategic planning effort for occupational learning by reducing environmental uncertainty and improving their anticipatory management. The current study seeks to examine construct validity of an Environmental Scanning (ES) scale for the South African occupational learning context. Data were collected from 552 participants using a non-experimental cross-sectional survey design. The findings show that the ES scale is a valid and reliable measure, and the data fits the model very well (x2 = 24.05; x2/df = 2.67; TLI = .97; IFI = .98; NFI = .97; CFI = .98; SRMR = .02 and RMSEA = .05).
