Technology, Its Application And Productivity Optimisation in Ghana: A Case Study
Background of the Study Technology has two major components, hardware (the tool that embodies the technology as a material or physical object), and software (the knowledge base for the tool)” (Rogers, 2003). Information technology has become pervasive in many Ghanaian organizations. Many view information technology innovations as strategic organizational tools. Researchers suggest that technology applications for example, computers, telecommunication services and software are the goals of most organizations. Others contend that the use of the technology application services can enable organizations to reduce its inefficiencies and errors in the job processes thus improving organizational performance.
