Abstract: Information generation is increasing rapidly on a global scale. The exponential advancement in information technology and communication has accentuated the problem of effective information management. Yet, employees’ cognitive ability to process information has not increased in parallel with information generation. With the exponential rise of information, information pollution (infollution) emerges as a problem on an exponential basis. Infollution is among the greatest challenges of the 21st century. Nevertheless, based on information processing theory and dynamic capability, researchers have conceptualised that agile organisations can cope with information pollution by promoting scalable workforce and organisational learning. By employing coping strategies, filtering has been hypothesised as moderating the association of scalable workplace and organisational learning with infollution management. This research will extend the literature in the domain of information management and agile organisations. It will be particularly useful for information processors to identify quality information for improved decision-making.
