Course outline

Job analysis – We’re all often and correctly told that getting the right balance of training content to meet expectations can lead to a better transfer of skills. As a result, it’s essential to determine what your audience needs to know before actually jumping into the techniques that they will use. And, this will offer them valuable insight as to which types will be most beneficial to their future analysis. Thus, the most critical starting point is to explore what exactly is a job analysis.

Practical examples will gain the most attention, so you should use the content to detail various applications of job analysis skills within companies. That will then allow you to focus on job descriptions, selection procedures, and worker mobility. To increase the likelihood that your audience will gain practical job-ready skills, you should explore the role of job analysis within training and development, compensation, and performance management settings.

Main types of job analysis – There are a few straightforward ways to share this material without making things too complicated. For best results, use the content to discuss the crucial area of the interview. Don’t forget to share real-life examples and examine the vital concept of observation. On top of that, exploring two essential tools (e.g., the critical incident technique and the position analysis questionnaire) is easily the most effective way to improve the skills of your audience.

If you don’t spend time discussing these types of job analysis properly, you run the risk that your audience does not develop the skills required. Depending on the size of the company where your audience works, the employment of these techniques can differ. We believe that it’s a good idea to invest time working on examples to aid your delivery of this section of the course.

Criteria – As you are aware, it’s not always easy to develop job analysis skills. So, how do you go about sharing this with your audience? Well, if you can include examples from within their company, you can explore whether they are ready to perform a job analysis. In particular, the use of company-specific cases will open considerable opportunities for discussion and generate the best results. Establishing a basis for whether your audience is ready to perform a job analysis is a critical decision point. The content in this section walks through some of the right questions to ask.
