Today, the role of Information and
Communication Technologies (ICTs) in shaping human activities in organizations
and in society has become more and more prominent.
But many decades after their introduction, the question remains: What do we know about their design, their usage, and their impact? What have we learned after all these years of research?
ICTO is an international academic association concerned with these ICTs, shedding light on how they were, how they are, and how they will be understood, adopted, adapted, assimilated, and used within organizations and more generally, within the society as a whole.
As an academic association, the main focus will be on how actors understand the potential of ICTs to support organizational activities and hence how they adopt and adapt these technologies to achieve their goals.
ICTO is interested in different areas of the
organization's strategy through new business models, competitive strategies,
knowledge management, etc. Specific areas are concerned such as marketing,
human resource management, project management, operation management, innovation
management, etc. These questions can be addressed both in private and public
sectors either national or international.
ICTO is also interested in how organization impact society through sustainable development and social responsibility. And finally, how ICTs use social media networks in the process of value co-creation.
