Abstract
Recent studies have been promoting entrepreneurial competencies for software developers. However, software developers must have the intention to perform entrepreneurial competencies effectively. Therefore, this study aims to investigate behavioural intention of software developers by extending the Theory of Planned Behaviour with self-efficacy and entrepreneurial competencies and indirect relationships via antecedents of behavioural intention. This study adopted a purposive sampling technique and validated 268 questionnaires for statistical analysis. A Partial Learning Algorithm was used for data analysis. The Perceived Behavioural Control has demonstrated extreme impact on the intention of software developers to perform entrepreneurial competencies when developing a software product, while the subjective norm has shown a negative impact on the software developers intention. The study presents empirical evidence meant for the applicability of the extended Theory of Planned Behaviour to perform entrepreneurial competencies effectively. The findings contribute valuable insights to the growing interest of researchers to explain software developers intention to perform entrepreneurial competencies.
