Introduction to Industrial and Organizational Psychology Week 2 Lecture Notes 1/27/16  The general types of job analyses are job­oriented or person­oriented.  A job­oriented job analysis provides the description of the job in a format that depends of the field of the job.  A person­oriented job analysis identifies what characteristics a person needs to have in  order to do the job and this includes KSAO’s (Knowledge, Skills, Abilities, and Other  Characteristics.)  Person­oriented analyses use the same measurement to analyze the job on one common  set of dimensions and are filtered through a format of KSAO’s.  In order to do a job analysis, a SME (Subject Matter Expert) is needed. SME’s include  supervisors, peers related to the job, or a current employee in that job.  Some sources of basic information about the job can include job incumbents, supervisors, and job analysts in order to receive pertinent information about how the job is typically  done, how the job is supposed to be done, and past information on the analysis of that  job.  People provide the information of a job analysis by performing the job, observing  employees on the job, interviewing SME’s, and giving questionnaires to SME’s.  The Task­Inventories approach to analyzing a job is job­oriented. This approach is  tailored to a specific job. In this approach, a job analyst would interview an SME and  observe. The job analyst would also generate a task list including 100­500 sets of tasks.  The analyst will evaluate the tasks on the basis of time spent, criticality, difficulty  learning, and, importance. These tasks are then grouped into dimensions or categories  creating a unique set of dimensions for each job.  The Critical Incident approach to analyzing a job is job­oriented. This approach is highly  focused on the most important tasks and identifies crucial behaviors that separate  effectiveness from non­effectiveness in that job. The analyst using this approach will  place the critical behaviors and tasks into dimensions. This approach is an efficient way  to identify major keys to success in a job, but is not a full inventory of all aspects of the  job.  The Job Component Inventory approach to job analysis is a person­oriented approach that assessed job requirements in a way that can match to an employee’s KSAO’s. in this  approach, the features of the job are translated into description of skill requirements. This approach has 400 or more features and 5 summary dimensions.  The Functional Job Analysis (FJA) approach to job analysis is a person­oriented  approach that begins with task statements for each job. This approach rates each task on  data, people, and things. The common framework of this approach is for describing all  jobs. This approach integrates all ratings to get job description in FJA format. This  approach uses a dictionary of occupational titles called O*Net.
