This manuscript presents the methodology of constructing an e-readiness assessment model in Iran. In this methodology, an objective model was utilized to measure the degree of Iran's e-readiness. In order to select the effective indicators on e-readiness, the knowledge and experience gained from valid e-readiness assessment models were put to good use. The proposed methodology follows a four-step process. To model and correct the model in different methodology stages, Entropy and Scree
test methods were used. In the design of this model, the experience of other countries, the development level of national information and communication technology (ICT), national policies and strategies in ICT development, as well as experts' opinion, have been taken into consideration.The result achieved in this methodology is an Iran e-readiness assessment model, which is easy to implement, practical and provides a comparison between Iran situation in different ICT sectors and other countries.
