Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate how organizational reforms and human resource management affect the effective introduction of information technology, conducting multiple comparisons based on the nation-wide survey data from 3141 firms. This analysis reveals two observations. First, reforms in organizational structures and human resource management significantly affect the successful use of information technology. Second, smaller firms have some difficulties on business process reengineering and training of their employees for the effective use of the technology. Therefore, it can be concluded that smaller firms need comprehensive consulting support for their investment in information technology.
