Can a job be impacted by both automation and augmentation at the same time?

Yes, a job can be proportionally impacted by both automation and augmentation. Different tasks in a job are subject to either automation or augmentation depending on their nature and the availability and adoption of technologies at a particular time.

For example, a typical accounting role completes numeric tasks that rely on straightforward logic, and these types of tasks are highly automatable. Accountants also undertake abstract tasks such as visualising and presenting data, which are easily augmentable tasks.
