We have all experienced that
appalling sense of having far too much
work to do and too little time to do it
in. We can choose to ignore this, and
work unreasonably long hours to stay
on top of our workload. The alternative
is to work more intelligently, by focusing
on the things that are important for
job success and reducing the time we
spend on low priority tasks.
Job Analysis is the first step in doing
this, and it s a key technique for man-
aging job overload---an important source
To do an excellent job, you need to
understand fully what is expected of
you. While this may seem obvious, in
the hurly-burly of a new, fast-moving,
high-pressure role, it is oftentimes
something that is easy to overlook.
By understanding the priorities in
your job, and what constitutes success
within it, you can focus on these activ-
ities and minimise work on other tasks
as much as possible. This helps you
get the greatest return from the work
you do, and keep your workload under
Job analysis is a useful technique for
getting a firm grip on what really is
important in your job so that you are
able to perform excellently. It helps you
to cut through clutter and distraction
to get to the heart of what you need
Note that this tool takes two forms:
the short-form we discuss here assumes
that your organiSation is already well
organised and that its job descriptions,
review criteria and incentives are well-
aligned and correct. The long-form,
helps you to deal with jobs where this
is not the case; here, inconsistent job
design can cause enormous stress.
Using the Tool
To conduct a job analysis, go through
the following steps:
1. Review Formal Job Documentation
Look at your job description. Identify
the key objectives and priorities within
it. Look at the forms for the periodic
performance reviews. These show pre-
cisely the behaviors that will be reward-
ed and, by implication, show those that
will be punished.
Find out what training is available
for the role. Ensure that you attend
appropriate training so that you know
as much as possible about what you
need to know.
Look at incentive schemes to under-
stand the behaviours that these reward.
2. Understand the Organisation s
Strategy and Culture
Your job exists for a reason -- this
will ultimately be determined by the
strategy of the organisational unit you
work for. This strategy is often expressed
in a mission statement. In some way,
what you do should help the organi-
sation achieve its mission (if it does
not, you have to ask yourself how secure
the job is!).
