The key to improving the economic and productivity performance of every country in the world lies with the greater and better-focused use of Information and Communications Technology, according to the Connectivity Scorecard 2009, a recent study by Professor Leonard Waverman.

The Connectivity Scorecard 2009, commissioned by Nokia Siemens Networks, and written by Professor Waverman, Fellow of the London Business School, and with the consulting group LECG, measured the extent to which governments, businesses and consumers in 50 countries make use of connectivity technologies to enhance economic and social prosperity.

Connectivity is defined in the study as the bundle of infrastructure, complementary skills, software and informed usage that makes communications networks the key driver of productivity and economic growth.
