How do you hire and train the right person to successfully perform the work of a job?  

This one-day workshop provides an overview of job analysis and an opportunity to experience how to conduct the well-known technique called DACUM (Developing a Curriculum). DACUM is a quick, low cost method of analyzing jobs and has a long history of proven success. A job analysis determines the duties and tasks performed for a given job, and uses a panel of subject-matter experts to gather critical job information, including the duties, the tasks, the prerequisites for performing the job, and the important worker characteristics.

When a job analysis is complete, the information can be used to write job descriptions, determine the skill and compensation levels for the position, and create training materials. This information is essential for a wide range of uses essential for organizational success, including:

  • identifying job expectations
  • designing training programs
  • developing work documents

This workshop is appropriate for a wide range of staff – training, human resources, health and safety, and quality – who are asked to document what people do on their job in a way that is systematic, useful, and defensible.

Participants will receive a copy of the recently published book, Work Analysis in the Knowledge Economy: Documenting What People Do at Work (Macmillan) by Dr. Ronald L. Jacobs.

By the end of the workshop, participants will:

  • have a greater understanding of job analysis
  • acquire beginning skills on how to conduct a job analysis back in their organizations
  • be familiar with task analysis, which is an essential skill for developing work instructions, job aids, and on-the-job training materials.


Cost: $350/per person, includes course materials, Work Analysis in the Knowledge Economy: Documenting What People Do at Work book, lunch and refreshments

Sponsor: IMEC, University of Illinois

Presenter: Dr. Ronald L. Jacobs, University of Illinois Professor of Human Resource Development
