Technology doesn't Bite

Many people are still under the impression that technology is a bad thing that de-skills and takes away jobs, maybe that's why there's such a poor take up in some industries. But should be be afraid of it or can it actually give us a competitive advantage?

I heard a statistic recently that made me double-take because I couldn’t believe it possible in 2014 and that statistic was “47% of project managers are using manual methods that involve spreadsheets, email or pen and paper for planning and tracking projects”.

How can that be possible?
