Recent evidence suggests that information technology (IT) investments have a positive impact on productivity and economic growth for developed countries. However, for developing countries the relationship between IT investment and economic growth remains unclear. This paper draws on the resource-based view (RBV) theory with its notion of resource complementarity to propose a theoretical model of how factors interact with IT investment to influence economic productivity. The proposed model posits a number of factors effecting the productivity of IT investment in developing economies.
