Manual on Occupational Analysis.
Hermann, Graham D.
This manual on occupational analysis, developed in Australia, is organized in three sections. The first section provides a framework for occupational analysis (OA) and a discussion of possible outputs from an OA from each of three phases: (1) determining the nature and scope of the occupational area; (2) developing a competencies list; and (3) collecting data on each competency. Section 2 provides a set of flowcharts and discussion to assist selection of appropriate OA techniques for each step of the three phases. The third section discusses OA techniques. This section is in two parts: (1) a categorization of OA techniques (desk methods, field methods, inventory methods, introspection, and indirect methods); and (2) descriptions of selected OA techniques--information search, extended information search, observation, observation plus interview, interviewed individuals, competencies interview, DACUM (Developing a Curriculum), nominal group technique, and critical incident technique. A glossary, 19 references, and an index are included. (KC)
