Abstract

Each year, companies around the world spend huge amounts for the informatisation of their activities, but the increase of the investments in this field doesn’t imply always the increase of the work productivity and profit with the same rate. The ”productivity paradox” of information technologies could be explained only by the fact that the return of investments is determined by the ways in which the technology is used, not by the technology itself. Many times, there is a big difference between the capabilities of the IT tools and what the employees understand to use, depending on the level of culture, instruction, adaptation. In solving these problems an important role has the orientation of the organisations management toward an efficient exploitation of the IT systems.
