The chosen road topic, narrowed idea, and research question is technology, technology and productivity, and what are three ways technology has made us more/less productive at work? The choice of this topic is based on the fact that technology is an emerging issue in the society, which has been affecting every sphere of life. Despite the fact that technology has been affecting every aspect of life, there is little known about the specific impact that technology has had on areas where it is being applied. For example, computers are known to have increased productivity in the workplace, but little is known of how specific this impact has been. By studying the research topic on the ways in which technology has made us to be more or less productive, it is possible to study and understand the specific impact that technology has had in regard to productivity. In addition, the results from the research to be conducted will create suggestions on the strategies that can be applied in making the best out of technology in improving productivity.
