Generic Skills Handbook of Occupational Information.
Kawula, Walter J.; Smith, Arthur De W.
Generic skills were identified in five categories: mathematical skills, communication skills, reasoning skills, interpersonal skills, and manipulative skills. Workers and supervisors having 82 different occupational titles were then asked to indicate whether they used each of the 191 skills in their work. Results are tabulated to indicate how many of the 10 respondents in each occupational category stated that they needed a particular skill. From this basic data occupational profiles were generated in matrix form. These profiles are presented in this handbook, together with matrices indicating the needs of workers in various skill clusters. Potential uses of the handbook in developing basic training sequences and in career counselling are described. (SD)
