Précis--An Activity-Productivity Analysis of a Variable Task

By Robert J. Paul


This activity-productivity study applied quantitative methods to a large random sample of the highest volume and lowest volume performers engaged in nonmanual, nonrepetitive activities. Its objective was to note how the groups differed in terms of time utilization. With further study this information could provide useful insights for analysis in the areas of selection, training, performance evaluation and personnel appraisal.
