Event description

Description

Job Analysis for Effective Training and Development

For a variety of reasons, jobs are undergoing constant change and becoming more complex, particularly in the manufacturing sector. Managers face the two-fold challenge of knowing in advance which aspects of jobs will actually change and ensuring that workers possess the knowledge and skills to meet the new job requirements.

Job and Task Analysis plays a critical role in curriculum development, job relations, and the success workers experience when they are well-suited for a job. When completed, a job analysis will result in a clear description of the job, along with the skills, compensation levels, and documented training materials that will deliver positive job outcomes and worker satisfaction.

The January IMIN Network session will introduce the well-known technique called DACUM, or Developing a Curriculum provides a hands-on opportunity to use a modified version of the Defining a Curriculum technique. DACUM is shown to be especially effective for most small and medium-sized firms. The workshop will also discuss how to conduct a task analysis and to use the information to solve practical problems.

For a variety of reasons, jobs are undergoing constant change and becoming more complex, particularly in the manufacturing sector. Managers face the two-fold challenge of knowing in advance which aspects of jobs will actually change and ensuring that workers possess the knowledge and skills to meet the new job requirements.

However, most information on the the changing nature of jobs is presented from a broader perspective, that is often more useful for policy discussions. Discussions about the changing nature of jobs in a specific context is relatively limited, and is much needed to advance research and practice.

The purpose of this Project is to demonstrate and learn how to conduct a skills gap analysis. Skills gap analysis is the process of identifying how jobs will change and planning how to address the changes.


The overall goal of the Project is to help companies use the Process to more reasonably manage the changing job requirements in their companies.
