Using a one-group pretestposttest pre-experimental research design and data collected by questionnaire and taken from archival sources, this study found that while an organization's outputs increased from 28% to 32% after computer support of clerical tasks, labor inputs declined 21%. The findings here support the notion that office automation and word processing in particular, enhanced productivity. These findings do not support a growing concern among investors in office automation that it is counterproductive.
