How To Do a Skills Analysis and Skills Audit.
Hayton, Geoff; Loveder, Philip
This book provides practical suggestions on conducting a skills analysis that identifies the skills required for each job or a skills audit that identifies the skills held by the individual. Chapter 1 describes the contribution of these two types of skills projects to the implementation of major industrial changes in Australia. Chapter 2 defines these terms: job analysis, skills analysis, skills audit, training needs analysis, skill, and competency. Chapter 3 describes these workplace reform activities: develop competitive strategy, work process analysis, job analysis, change to work organization, job redesign, and training needs analysis. Chapter 4 discusses the three steps at the planning stage: set up consultative committee, prepare project brief or proposal, and select a consultant or project officer. Chapter 5 describes in detail the four major steps involved in conducting the skills project: set climate for project, collect skills data, analyze data, and report results. Chapter 6 addresses implementing changes and identifies industrial relations issues. Appendixes include a list of 28 references, an annotated listing of 25 references for further reading, and a glossary. (YLB)
