Job Modeling

By: Shirley Chambliss

Job Modeling – The Class A Approach to Talent Selection – The success of process improvement initiatives often is compromised when human factor requirements are not addressed and the people selected to lead or staff the new or redesigned process either underperforms or fail. However, the risk of failure caused by a mismatch of people and required capabilities can be mitigated through the use of job modeling tools and technologies. Job modeling systems now available can identify the specific human factors required and assist management to select the ideal person to lead new process implementations and/or to perform a designated task. This white paper describes behavioral measurement technologies, job modeling creation, and how their application can lead to successful change improvement initiatives.
