Two new tools useful in curriculum development are the systems approach and functional job analysis. Functional job analysis defines the exact tasks of a specific job or occupation, restructures the tasks if necessary, states performance criteria for each task, and identifies the training and knowledge necessary for task performance. The systems approach enables an organization to (1) measure its effectiveness in meeting goals, (2) organize its resources within specified time periods, and (3) respond to the changing needs of the environment. Course content can then be determined by the knowledge and training needs of an organization and tempered by an organization's resources and constraints. A related document, EA 003 792, presents a model curriculum for human services occupations. (RA)
