چکیده

قابلیت­های فناوری اطلاعات نقش مهمی در محیط پرسرعت و در حال تغییر ایفا می­کند. این نکته قابل تاکید است که سازمان­هایی که فناوری اطلاعات و قابلیت استفاده از آن را دارند از نظر کسب، ذخیره و انتقال دانش می­توانند پیشرو دیگر سازمان­ها باشند و فناوری در کمیت وکیفیت یادگیری بسیار موثر است و یادگیری از جمله عوامل کلیدی در بهبود عملکرد سازمان است. پژوهش حاضر به بررسی تاثیر قابلیت­های فناوری اطلاعات بر عملکرد سازمانی از طریق ظرفیت­جذب دانش ویادگیری سازمانی می پردازد. از لحاظ تحقیق از نوع تحقیقات توصیفی-پیمایشی و از نظر هدف یک تحقیق کاربردی است. جامعه آماری این تحقیق شرکت­های فعال در صنایع آب و فاضلاب، ساختمان، نانو و مخابرات است. که در مجموع 203 شرکت به عنوان نمونه در نظر گرفته شدند و اطلاعات آنها از طریق پرسشنامه جمع­آوری شده است  و برای تجزیه­و­تحلیل اطلاعات از تحلیل­عاملی­تاییدی و مدل­یابی­معادلات­ساختاری­ با استفاده از نرم­افزار لیزرل استفاده گردیده است. بررسی نتایج این تحقیق گویای این مطلب است که قابلیت­های فناوری اطلاعات از طریق یادگیری سازمانی بر عملکرد سازمانی تاثیر مثبت دارد. از سوی دیگر قابلیت های فناوری اطلاعات از طریق ظرفیت جذب دانش بر عملکرد سازمانی تاثیر ندارد.

This study investigates the influence of information technology on organizational performance through the capacity of knowledge attraction and organizational learning. This study is a descriptive-survey and categorized as a practical research. The statistical population includes water and waste water, building, Nano, and telecommunications industries. We considered 203 firms as a sample and used questionnaire to collect the required data. To analyze data, confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modeling technique was used. As a whole, the results show that information technology capabilities effect on organizational performance indirectly through organizational learning. On the other hand, it has no impact on organizational performance through knowledge absorptive capacity.
