Job descriptions are a list of what the job entails, while job specifications identify what kind of people to hire for the job.
The job analysis itself involves collecting information on matters such as work activities, required human behaviors, and machines, tools, and equipment used.
Managers use job analysis information in recruitment and selection, compensation, training, and performance appraisal.
The basic steps in job analysis include deciding the use of the job analysis information, reviewing relevant background information including organization charts, analyzing the job, verifying the information, and developing job descriptions and job specifications.
There are various methods for collecting job analysis information. These include interviews, questionnaires, observation, participant diary/logs, and quantitative techniques such as position analysis questionnaires.
