Technology management in organizations
What factors determine a firm's potential for successful technology management? Why do certain groups of employee resist technological change in their workplace? And why are certain firms always riding the crest of the technological wave while others lag behind? These issues are examined in this volume, which provides a framework for technology acquisition and change by firms based on their strategy in human resource management and also the determinism experienced by internal labour markets. Interdisciplinary and cross-national, this richly diverse volume integrates theories, research and models from a wide variety of fields.
