Resource description

This paper addresses the following two questions in the context of developing technology excellence in developing countries: If developing countries are slow in implementing even old technologies such as the telephone, are they doomed to lag behind the high-income OECD countries in the adoption and implementation of IT innovations? Further, if the effective use of IT is vital for business competitiveness and economic growth, will corporations from these countries be capable of competing effectively in the global arena? Using the examples of Motorola’s software subsidiary in Bangalore, India and Cemex in Mexico, the paper argues that technology excellence can be created in developing countries.
