The Significance of Technology for Organizational Culture in Ghana

ABSTRACT
Technology has become the byword in the era of globalization. It can be attested of in various aspects of life as we know it. In Ghana, however, most especially in the business world, the use of technology has been cited as a phenomenon to be feared as, according to the understanding of most workers in this field, that, the entrance of technology into an organization is most often than not, a way for organizations to purge themselves of mostly the older generations in the working sector. There is also that apprehension for certain levels of technology by organizations in the country who strive to stay authentically Ghanaian. This research examines these modes of technology and the cultures of various organizations to point out the significance of technologies in the promotion of cultures by proving the hypothesis that technology adaptation to the culture of organizations is more effective as compared to indigenous Ghanaian organizations. This research focused primarily on organizations in Ghana with international presence to ascertain how their adaptation of technology to their culture aids in the promotion of their services, using both primary and secondary data to investigate concepts and theories to determine how best certain methods can be adopted by our growing Ghanaian organizations. A major finding of the study was that technology appears to be greatly embraced in the current Ghanaian business sector and thus has increased the level of standard for start-up organizations in the country over the years. Another finding was that the adaptation of technology to the culture of organizations is more useful to international organizations with subsidiaries in Ghana as compared to indigenous Ghanaian organizations. Arising from this is the contribution made that without technology, organizations would have to face collapse or ineffectiveness in the production of their goods and services with no hope of ever entering the international setting with regards to business. The research concludes with recommendations of adaptation of technology by organizations, education of workers in organizations on how to use adapted technologies effectively and finally the implementation of such technologies by the organization in order to allow organizations the opportunity to reach even the outside world.
