Abstract:

The productivity paradox is a theory that suggests that investments in Information Technology IT do not necessarily lead to associated gains in the productivity of the organization Malakoff 2000 Hitt and Brynjolfsson, 1996. This perception leads practitioners to question if acquiring new IT systems for the sake of having the latest technology will make their organization any more productive Liebmann, 1996. Understanding the problem that is facing the practitioners, this research was undertaken to attempt to answer some of the underlying questions relating to the perceptions held about the relationship between IT expenditures and workplace productivity with respect to Air Force communication squadrons.
