The Competitive Edge: Sharpening Your Skills in the Workplace. Administrator's Guide.
This guide is intended to be used as a companion to "The Competitive Edge: Sharpening Your Skills in the Workplace" curricular materials--the student editions and instructors' guides. It can also stand alone as a reference for individuals just starting to implement or beginning to plan a workplace skills enhancement program in their organization. The guide describes these 14 steps in planning and carrying out a workplace skills enhancement program: plan in advance, identify departments, establish advisory committee, meet with supervisors, schedule task analyses, conduct task analyses, correlate tasks to enabling skills, develop assessment, administer assessment, identify participants, schedule classes, identify instructional materials, provide instruction, and evaluate program impact. Appendixes include five resources and their addresses and telephone numbers for additional information on various aspects of workplace skills enhancement programs and a timeline. (YLB)
