Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how you can deliver the key sections of this training course.

Job design – Excellent training content will help you engage with your audience, whether you regularly provide training courses, or if this is a new move for you. Use the content supplied to challenge your audience to think differently about job design skills.

In this section, use the slides and participant manual to guide your audience on what job design is and ask them to examine underlying assumptions and a wide range of concepts involved. Consider each aspect and challenge participants to explore:

– Job-person fit
– Increased performance
– Maximize internal resources
– Greater job satisfaction
Reduced absenteeism & turnover

By offering personal insights with this content, you will allow your audience to take in the material with real value. This storytelling is a big part of creating the right atmosphere when delivering this content. Remember that if these examples and experiences might seem small to you, they’re hugely crucial to embedding learning.

Fundamental principles – What job design principles should you be sharing?

Well, there were some definite winners. For best results, use the content to examine various approaches to job design.

For your audience, it may be hard for them to consider job-design skills, especially if they are not sure how they will fit within their duties. This point is critical and is something we frequently hear from clients with human resource management development needs. However, the goal of this section is also to share a clearer picture of management theories related to job design. When introducing these theories, it’s important to distinguish between approaches and to share insights wherever possible. Remember to use exercises when appropriate.

As you prioritize your content, make sure you use the content provided to discuss scientific management, job simplification, and principles of job enrichment. Your insights will demonstrate your knowledge base and will also allow you to explore critical psychological states and alternative work schedules.
