This paper examines whether IT (information technology) management enhances the effects of IT investments. Our empirical analyses are based on the unique survey data. Main findings are as follows. Firms with IT management have higher effects of IT investments. The result holds when the indexes for IT management are classified into cost reduction indexes and profit increase indexes. In addition, IT management associated with higher degree of attainment helps produce the effects of IT investments for cost reduction. Finally, Firms with IT management enjoy better business conditions. These results suggest that IT management play an important role in enhancing the productivity.
