Job analysis usually begins with a detailed review of information previously collected to develop a framework for further analysis. Although prior information related to a job (major responsibilities, task dimensions, etc.) may exist, it may no longer be accurate; clarification of existing information may be necessary. Identify one particular job title within Time Warner. Analyze the job description and describe whether or not the information is still accurate or in need of further clarification. Discuss the steps you take to perform an in-depth job analysis (What type of information would you collect? How would you collect it? Etc.). How do you think your job analysis would stand up to various criteria for judging the analysis? Given this type of reflection, discuss your opinion on the value of performing a job analysis.
