Abstract

This article examines organizational and management factors influencing technology assimilation in Taiwanese information technology firms. The findings of this empirical research show that effectiveness is significantly higher when multidisciplinary and multifunctional teams are involved in technology assimilation. An organization structure providing an environment that encourages communication, coordination, and openness is also found to facilitate technology assimilation. Furthermore, networking and flexibility brought about by modern information technologies are shown to be important in achieving the right conditions for effective technology assimilation. Managing the interaction between the source and recipient of technology is another critical activity determining the effectiveness of technology assimilation.
