Business Administration and Management. Occupational Competency Analysis Profile.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Vocational Instructional Materials Lab.
This Occupational Competency Analysis Profile (OCAP) for business administration and management is an employer-verified competency list that evolved from a modified DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) job analysis process involving business, industry, labor, and community agency representatives throughout Ohio. The competency list consists of six units: (1) economic and business concepts, (2) management and supervision, (3) accounting and financial functions, (4) information technology, (5) general office functions, and (6) communications. Competencies for employability also are listed in six units: career development, decision making and problem solving, work ethic, job-seeking skills, job retention and career advancement skills, and technology in the workplace. Each OCAP identifies the occupational, academic, and employability skills (competencies), clustered into broader subunits and units and coded by priority, needed to enter a given occupation or occupational area. The OCAP guide also includes an academic job profile showing levels of proficiency in academic areas needed for business administration and management; a total list of academic competencies as well as a list of the competencies needed for these occupations; and a list of the members of the verification panels.
