1.1BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Communication and information management occupy the central place in every organization. There is virtually no office where one form of communication or the other does not exist. Communication has greatly assisted in the growth of business as well as in the control of activities of the organization. The rapidity with which the world is changing as we all know today is no more news. The heart of these changes is the various forms of computer based information communication technologies that abound. According to Odgers (2002), Information Technology (IT) is the study, designed, development, implementation, support and management of computer-based information system particularly software applications and computer hardware. It could also be describe as technology that combines computing with telecommunication and networking to produce unable information. It is the engine that growth and development in the organization is tied. It points and indicates the pace of events, fashioning the way we live, work and conduct business.

Innovation in information and technology is a welcome development both in business and in the public sector. Communication is essential to the organized effort involved in business. Communication enables human beings to work together in an organization, it is the vehicle through which management perform its basic functions. Managers direct through communication, coordinate through communication and staff, plan, control through communication. This research work examined the concept of information and communication technology in the efficient management of information. It studies the application of information and communication technology in business organizations; this is how people use information and communication technology to store information regarding payrolls, control inventory, analysis of sales and manages laboratory data.

This result was low productivity. To eliminate these negative effects, science and technology has played a great role of improving the methods and machines used in offices. A lot of development has taken place in the last decade with regards to the use of modern offices machines of which the information and communication technology is one of them. The larger an organization, the more likely it is to be heavily dependent on the information and communication technology. The filling retrieval of information is carried out with ease by giving appropriate commands to the computer to either display such information on the screen (Visual Display Unit) or print the information on paper with the printer attached to the computer. The use of information and communication technology also ensure security of information as only authorized personnel will have access to such information with the use of a password.

However, some workers feel threatened by the information, introduction and communication technology. They feel that their jobs will be taken over by the use of information and communication or that their jobs will be mere bottom pushers. They think they will lack personal touch in their jobs, so a feeling of insecurity prevails. It is against this background that the research is been carried out.
