Job Analysis and Performance
Job analysis is the fundamental building block for virtually all human resources practices. This course first introduces students to the theory, practices and techniques for analyzing and describing the nature of work and individual jobs in organizations. It then focuses on how this information is applied to develop other human resources systems such as selection, job design, training and compensation. A particular emphasis is placed upon the development and implementation of performance appraisal systems. Research and practices regarding various approaches to performance appraisal are discussed, as are the implications of performance appraisal for motivation, development and organizational effectiveness.
