Pick an industry and consider how you would go about conducting a job analysis and designing jobs to be effective. Your paper should, at a minimum, address these questions:
- What sources of information would you want to collect data from in a job analysis for an organization in this industry, any why?
- Which methods of data collection would be most effective in a job analysis for an organization in this industry, and why?
- What critical information should go into a job description for common jobs in this industry, and why?
- Of the job design aspects that we discussed, which are specifically relevant to common jobs in this industry, and why? (e.g. empowerment, teams, flexible work schedules)
Summarize your findings in a 1-2 page paper, and be prepared to discuss your results in class.
Use in-text citations to show where you are applying or discussing content from any outside sources, including websites. End your paper with a References list that gives the full details about the sources. In-text citations and References should be formatted according to APA standards
