The use of appropriate interventions focused on influencing beliefs can be instrumental then in facilitating such acceptance, notwithstanding the profile of the work group. For stakeholder to implement new information technologies in work groups where individuals' profile are not quite consistent with the type of profile indicative may be nothing inherent in individual differences that strongly determines acceptance and, because of the mediating role played by beliefs, it is possible to find alternative means of facilitating technology acceptance and increasing individual productivity.
