AHP results show that the test inconsistency rate is 0. 03, which is less than 0. 1 and leads to the reliability of research instrument. In addition, analytical hierarchy process results also demonstrate that the contextual dimensions with the weight of 0. 582 are assigned the maximum prioritization followed by structural and behavioral aspects with weights of 0. 279 and 0. 139, respectively.
