IT Management Project 2
Introduction
Firms all over the world face difficulties and failures in the transfer of information
technology. Despite these challenges, there are several benefits that organizations and countries
get from the transfer of information technology. Some of these benefits include innovation,
technology infrastructure, enhanced productivity, and competitiveness. Therefore, the project
proposal attempts to explore some of the effects of transferring information technology, such as,
online training in Saudi Arabia.
Background
Straub, Loch & Hill (2000, pp. 4-60) note that technology transfer refers to the process of
moving technology from one unit to another. The movement of information technology is said to
be effective if the transferee or the recipient can successfully use the transferred technology and
ultimately incorporate it. The transfer of information technology can be in form of physical
assets, technical knowledge, and know-how. In other instances can be limited to exchange and
relocation of personnel, or the movement of a particular set of skills. Besides, Awny (2005, pp.
213-220) says that technology transfer can be termed as technology movement from laboratory
to industry; one application to another; or developed to developing country. Moreover,
information technology transfer involves online training, and has both positive and negative
effects on the firms.
Ngoc (2008, pp. 78-143) maintains that scholars have broadly postulated that the transfer
of information technology products, services and knowledge is influential in the enhancement of
worldwide production effectiveness and competitiveness as thriving technological innovations
can replace and promote traditional modes and inputs of production. Moreover, Hoekman,
Maskus and Saggi (2004, pp. 1-36) assert that technological transfer enhances a recipient

country’s productivity. Nonetheless, these benefits are only achievable if the country of origin is
hi-tech exporting country, and IT-intensive importing country (Al-Mabrouk, Soar, Hoque2008,
pp. 2-14). What is more, transfer of information technology is promotes the technological
infrastructure, innovation capacity, and openness.
Aims and Objectives of the study
The study aims at exploring the potential effects of information technology transfer in
Saudi Arabia. Its objectives include:
To identify effects of transferring IT in Saudi Arabia
To determine the benefits of IT transfer to large firms in Saudi Arabia
To identify the some of the problems that are encountered in the transfer of IT by large
firms in Saudi Arabia
To explore cultural influence in the transfer of IT in Saudi Arabia
Research Questions
Some of the research questions that will be involved in this study will include:
What are effects of IT transfer in Saudi Arabia?
What are the benefits of the IT transfer in Saudi Arabia?
What problems are encountered in the IT transfer in Saudi Arabia
What are is the influence culture in the transfer of IT to Saudi Arabia
Significance of the study
The study is vital informing firms, countries and individuals on the benefits of engaging
in IT transfer, especially in online training. Moreover, the study is imperative in identifying
effects of IT transfer on large firms in Saudi Arabia, and potential cultural influence in IT

transfer in Saudi Arabia. It also identifies some of the problems experienced in the process of
transferring information technology from one unit to another in Saudi Arabia.
Conclusions
The project proposal deals in the transfer of information technology in Saudi Arabia.
Information technology transfer refers to the movement of the information technology like online
training from one unit to another. The proposal intends to establish some of the effects, benefits
and problems involved in transfer of IT in Saudi Arabia. Besides, it seeks to determine the
influence of culture on IT transfer in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, if approved, the study will inform
on the impact of IT transfer to large firms in Saudi Arabia.
