Job descriptions are a key prerequisite for any performance management system because they provide the criteria (results and behaviors) that will be used in measuring performance. A job description includes the tasks and KSAs (which refers to the knowledge, skills, and abilities a person needs to have to do specific job effectively) of a specific job, and summarizes the job duties and working conditions.
Complete the following:
- Select two similar organizations of your liking and a unit in each organization, and analyze their mission and strategic goals.
- Compare and contrast two similar job descriptions from the organizations you selected (one from each organization). Based on similar job titles, analyze the differences in knowledge, skills, and abilities that are presented in each job description, along with the rationale that would cause these job descriptions to be different.
- Assess whether the job description (especially the duties and KSAs) align with the mission and strategic goals of each organization. Specifically choose two examples where they do align with either the mission or strategic goals, and two examples where they do not. Then propose how the two duties/KSAs can be rewritten so they better support the organization’s mission/goals.
