Job Analysis – It’s the Job Dummy not the Person!

The estimated reading time for this post is 56 seconds

A job analysis is a process that will identify and determine in detail the particular job functions and activities, interactions within the physical environment, work conditions, requirements for a particular job, expected or desired productivity, vocational qualities, and the relative importance of all these factors combined.

An important concept of a job analysis is that the analysis is conducted of the Job, not the Person.

A job analysis involves collecting data on a job or occupation and making judgments about its relevancy. While data may be collected from incumbents through interviews or questionnaires, the product of the analysis is a description or specifications of the job, again, not a description of the person.
