The Emerging and Employed Worker: Planning for the Strategic Imperative.
Geroy, Gary D.
This paper describes a series of four models around which plans can be developed to determine human development needs. It presents needs assessment models describing the process and participant interaction by which information is gathered to be used in education, training, funding, and/or other human resource development interventions to increase the ability of organizations to adequately address work force performance issues. This paper also presents a strategy for determining what skills and knowledge expert workers use when exhibiting "expert work behavior." The job analysis described is a linear systematic process beginning with an understanding of the broadest view of an expert worker's activities and ending with a detailed summary of the specific skills and knowledge needed to carry out each task in the expert's job. It also identifies psychomotor, cognitive, and affective factors associated with the successful job performance. The paper concludes that the job analysis outcome can be used to support a variety of management planning and decision making processes, including organization and job specific training design; education program planning; work force deployment; job design; and development of screening criteria for hiring or career adjustment.
