Even though both sides have supporters and detractors, the truth is that every day we are surrounded by more and more technologies and we must adapt to make the best out of the situation if we want to remain competitive within our organizations. Whether the case is if we will actually incorporate its use, or that we will continue to be as manual and handy as possible while recognizing that even the most simple forms of technology can help us to achieve better results and make our lives easier (e.g. the possibility of using a mobile phone anywhere vs. only being able to communicate through a land
