Session Overview...

Seminar Goal: 
This training for facilitators is designed to teach participants how to conduct, facilitate, manage and apply the outcomes of DACUM/occupational analysis in their agencies.

DACUM process incorporates the use of a focus group in a facilitated storyboarding process to capture the observations of high performing incumbent workers regarding the major duties and related tasks included in an occupation.

The panel of workers builds a wall full of the duties and tasks that make up their job.  Because of the focus and flexibility, the group can develop the job profile quickly and edit and refine it in a more collaborative fashion.

How the DACUM process can benefit your agency:
•Evaluation of position descriptions
•Training designed needs assessment
•Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance
•Personnel selection
•Participating in community services
•Educational programming

After completing the training, participants will be prepared to complete a job task analysis for a specific worker group.
