The Impact of IT on Managers
The Impact of IT on Managers The nature of work has changed dramatically with the advent of the Information Age. Undoubtedly, the number of files and emails that people create and share has increased significantly each year. Few industries are immune to this proliferation of information. Now, imagine yourself in a managerial role in which you had to keep track of several people and vast amounts of data. What kind of information would you have to process on a daily basis? What tools could you use to simplify your work? Discuss three elements of managerial work—one function, one role and one skill—and describe how IT improves the manager’s performance of each element. Identify one function, one role and one skill associated with managerial work. Identify one example of how IT could improve each of these three things. Evaluate the impact of the IT interventions you identified.
