Abstract

The use of technology is now extremely common in an increasing range of jobs, with the growth of the internet being just the latest phase. However, the way in which technology is actually used in organisations depends on decisions made by people and negotiations between people in particular social contexts. Because of this, technology is a very adaptable phenomenon. To get the best out of technology and the people that use it, managers therefore need an understanding of the nature of technological change, its organisational and human resource dimensions, and its circumstances of use.
