Abstract

Effective utilization of IT innovations requires changes in organization structure and management practices. Lately, globalization imperatives and competition imperatives have been added to technological imperatives to study changes in organization and are together labeled as drivers of change. This paper examines the influence of these drivers of change on managers’ jobs and performance evaluations. This study finds that managers recognize these drivers influencing their jobs and performance evaluations to varying degrees based on their receptiveness of technology. High technology oriented managers recognize a greater influence from these drivers than do the medium and low technology oriented managers. Similarly, high technology oriented managers perceive more influence from globalization imperatives and competition imperatives on their jobs and performance evaluations. Based on their use of IT, managers perceive the use of financial or non-financial performance measures related to IT, competition, and globalization in their performance evaluation.
