Identifying Critical Job Tasks.
This guide, which is intended for project directors, coordinators, and other professional staff involved in developing and delivering workplace education programs, explains the implications of identifying critical job tasks and details a process by which educational partners can facilitate identification of critical job tasks. First, critical job tasks are defined as job tasks dealing with projected changes and/or current performance/training problems that affect a company's bottom line. The importance of identifying critical job tasks to the job tasks analysis, skills assessment, curriculum development, instruction, and evaluation processes is explained. Presented next are a four-step process for identifying critical job tasks (identify in-house program experts; facilitate a meeting of the advisory council; identify and select two or three critical job tasks; and document the advisory council's decision) and an eight-step process for conducting an advisory council meeting (state meeting objectives, describe advisory panel responsibilities, present criteria for classifying critical job tasks, elicit information about positive company activities, transition to more sensitive issues, focus on specific job tasks or departments/problems, select two or three critical job tasks to target, and schedule job task analyses). Contains a list of six informational resources. (MN)
