Technology Anxiety

Here is exploding above the concept of “technological anxiety.” This follows from all psychological changes that are partners with the introduction of workers, for example, information (insecurities, dependencies, unknowns, feeling delay, etc.). However, if you analyze the concept of “quality of working life”, would understand that there is a contradiction, since the latter is affected in general, positively. This is easy to verify with the changes that have occurred in the concept of “job”, such as the emergence of virtual offices and many other business arrangements that allow “remote.” Work schedules also are relaxed, allowing, in many cases, work at home. Today’s organizations are called, in this case, to seek a positive relationship between these two concepts. 3 – The impact on interpersonal relationships and teamwork: In this respect include the value and relevance of communication in dealing with today’s world, it is through it that exerts a greater influence on people and contributes changes.

However, the way people communicate, ie, interpersonal relationships, have also been transformed in that it has changed the frequency of contacts and type of interactions between people (through the network).

This implies that the capacity of influence between individuals or groups is determined mostly by the technology factor. The functions of supervision and control has been transferred from people to machines, raising new demands in these areas. 4 – Impact on organizational structure and processes: Clearly and organizations are not the same, therefore, must change and people too must adapt to new conditions, the organizational structure, so as to facilitate the incorporation of these changes in the workplace. The “way of doing” things, they must also take and incorporate technology as central to the process. Definitely, management must is committed to the modern features that technology provides, namely integration with production management in all processes that encourage, not only instill a culture of quality and technology to ensure productivity, but a real integration of the operator in the advancement of technology in the present. You should pay more attention to what was argued Peter. Drucker is to be paid “more attention to the more powerful machine, the most advanced technology, the best developed software and foundation of all invention made: the brain.” Take into account Boyd Stuart indicating that the problem in question is not technology per se: it is the process by which leaders adapt to technology. In the broadest sense, technology refers to any enhancement of human ability, greater speed, loud sounds, blows stronger, clearer vision, faster calculations and so on Exposito finally invites us to consider that a good manager be able to distinguish between information society and knowledge society, because with the latter incorporating the human factor.


Successful companies are characterized by a disruptive technology, where their production processes as well as being sheltered from management indices according to the capabilities of the machines themselves, the operation of the technical staff, according to modern knowledge that require skills in handling modern technology and proper motivation, through a participatory management style, reliable and fully identified with the human factor in all those topics that recognizes their effectiveness, productivity. Unfortunately in the Venezuelan case, there are many SMEs that lack modern technology, have not been concerned with developing technology, but buy it from countries that have developed according to their financial possibilities, which may lead to offering products that meet demand. Exposito Ingrid writes about it, to take into account that technology has brought about the fall of barriers, especially economic and social product, for example, scanning the distance eliminated, becoming only the economy and the market so that competition knows no boundaries. But this has, likewise, economic instability and social crisis. However, we must recognize that the use of technology is essential in creating value and saving, primarily, the time resource is key to the organization’s competitive advantage. In short, we can identify this time that bears a name: Technological Change. Like all the changes that occur in the area of technology are a source of uncertainty, compounded by the fact that currently have an unusual speed, global and complex, but if you overcome fears and learn to deal with it, each development can be the starting point of many opportunities.
