Job Analysis and Competency Modeling
Review this week’s readings on job analysis and competency modeling, and comment on the applicability of the methodologies for determining required knowledge, skills and abilities for three different types of positions: administrative and professional positions, supervisory and entry level management positions, and executive positions. For which types of positions are job analysis and competency modeling most applicable? When, and under what conditions, are job analysis and competency modeling most effective as strategic tools? Explain your answer, referencing course readings and other academic sources. (Must be at least 300 words and use at least 3 references below.)
