Analysis of the Skills Used in Public Broadcasting's Key Jobs with Recommended Uses by Public Broadcasting Organizations.
Olian, Judy; Schneier, Craig E.
Designed to provide a listing of knowledge, skills, and abilities (collectively known as KSAs) that could be used by public broadcasting stations for recruitment, selection, promotion, evaluation, training, and staff career development, this document addresses three key broadcasting personnel areas. These areas are programming/production, engineering/operations, and promotion/development. Individuals in the selected key positions completed interviews and questionnaires to supply information about tasks performed. Their responses formed a listing of possible job tasks which was included in a final questionnaire sent to 500 public broadcasters. This survey gathered information on the frequency of performance of tasks, their difficulty, and whether or not they included a supervisory component. Also generated was a list of KSAs needed to perform each task. Nine tables list the crucial KSAs for the areas of: production; programming; technical and operations; promotion and development; and supervision tasks. Also included are lists of specific tasks that constitute each position, as well as brief information on how training needs assessment data may be used to develop or evaluate training, suggestions for conducting training programs and acquiring training resources, and other uses for training needs assessment data.
