Abstract [en]

This work presents research in progress in terms of a conceptual model for the understanding of IT-driven productivity at the individual level. The existence of the IT productivity paradox at different economic levels had been a concern for many IS researchers. Since evidence demonstrates that IT, in fact, increases productivity at the macro-, meso- and micro- level, current research attention shifted to the individual and task level of IT-driven productivity. In this regard, recent studies have applied different theoretical foundations to investigate the relationship between IT-use and performance effect at the individual level in post adoption contexts. Since the last decade, the idea that there is a need for a set of organizational factors to be changed in a synchronized fashion, when introducing new IT, has received a particular attention from researchers (e.g. Bartel et al., 2007; Tambe et al., 2012; Aral et al., 2012; Brynjolfsson & Milgrom, 2012). These studies have addressed the need for the joint adaptation of IT-use and innovative human resource management practices to enhance productivity gains at the firm, establishment and business unit performance levels. To investigate these proposals, we have designed a new research model aimed to research productivity growth when IT is deployed, jointly and in a synchronized manner, with both individual capital and organizational capital factors, at the individual level. The latter’s aims to advance further our understanding of the underlying mechanisms of information worker productivity at the individual level. An understanding of the patterns of effective IT-use together with other factors may help determine where research and managerial efforts have to be concentrated in order to enhance individual productivity of information workers. Key words: IT productivity paradox, complementarity, patterns, ITdriven productivity, individual level.
