Being a society, being citizens and employees, we are dependant on our ability to maintain competitive companies by continuously mastering a positive balance between complex entities such as productivity, economy, competence, well-being and, indeed, a more meaningful life in a coherent welfare society. Between these complex connections, technology plays a greater and greater role in many ways.
But technological possibilities of any kind can never stand alone, or, in other words, be realised ‘with technology per se’ when the purpose is to achieve improvement of productivity, well-being and quality. All experience shows that the benefits of new technology are most of all dependent on the way technology is implemented and the way technology, in practice, supports business and collaboration processes, employee competences and the working environment.
The key to optimal utilisation of technology is therefore, as a starting point, to understand technology as an instrument to make available and implement quality, organisational and competence related potentials – no matter what type of technology or what type of workplace.
