A Handbook for Job Restructuring.
Phillips, J. Edmund; And Others
Rapid changes in the nation's economy have resulted in significant increases in the demand for workers in technical jobs but a significant decrease in the demand for unskilled workers. Unfortunately, the abilities of available manpower have not been developed to meet the requirements of jobs at the levels where the increased demands have occurred. As a result, employment opportunities are not available for many individuals although many jobs cannot be filled. This handbook was developed to provide a basic guide for use in restructuring job systems in order to utilize available manpower resources more efficiently. The proper and judicious application of the job restructuring techniques described in this handbook may contribute to alleviating this imbalance by providing appropriate job opportunities for these individuals. The methodology contained in this handbook was derived from a special adaptation of the job analysis concepts and techniques developed by the United States Training and Employment Service over a 35-year period. Job restructuring worksheets and a bibliography are included in the report. (Author/BC)
