Abstract

For the past three decades information technology has been changing the way businesses operate, providing increased efficiency and productivity within organizations. Senior managers, as company stakeholders, play an important role in the assimilation of microcomputer technology in organizations. In this paper, the relationship between senior managers’ perceptions of information technology and their use will be investigated. The paper examines senior managers’ perceptions of the importance of information technology (IT) within the enterprise, their personal use of information technology (typically microcomputers), their participation in applications development, their allocation of funds for information technology support staff, and the role of IT in their decision making. We will also consider the possibilities for the use of information technology in the future, and further, what changes can be made to ensure positive attitudes toward computer technology, and good organizational support. Our The Senior Executive as Organizational Stakeholder of Microcomputer Technology goal is to build a model which helps explain how senior managers’ perceptions of IT impacts important organizational variables.
