From the Paper:

"The idea of introducing IT&C within the workplace has been pegged to the need to create a learning organization that continually learns and evolves along. This organization is generally characterized by a fresh mentality and high abilities in understanding, addressing and adapting to the changes in the environment, be them related to technologies, employee trends or customer demands. The techniques of information and communication technological developments are generally introduced by organizational managers who are in search of increased levels of operational efficiency (high levels of profitability and productivity obtained with low resource consumption and reduced costs), but the responses retrieved from the employees are often conflicting."
