''Adoption of Information and Communication Technologies and New Organizational Practices in the Tunisian Manufacturing Sector''
( 2014, Vol. 34 No.4 )
The aim of this paper is to explore the relationship between the adoption of Information Technologies(IT) and the adoption of New Organizational Practices (NOP) in the context of an emerging country (Tunisia). Based on a face-to-face questionnaire administrated to a random sample of 175 Tunisian manufactures we use ordered logit model to show a significant link between IT adoption and NOP. We show that the complementarity is strengthened when the technology evolves. Adoption and usage of latest technologies are pushed by the prior adoption of NOP
Keywords: ICT adoption, ICT usage, Ordred Logit Model, New Organizational Practices.
