Job and Task Analysis

Corporate and Professional Development offers business and industry full job and task analysis services using the Turbo-DACUM (Develop A Curriculum) process. The Turbo-DACUM is a computer-enhanced process developed by Dr. Katherine Manley to quickly and accurately facilitate skills assessment development, curriculum design and fundamental re-engineering of the workplace.  The purpose of this comprehensive job and task analysis is to accurately establish a foundation for employee development strategies.

 Curriculum development 

  • Diagnose training needs
  • Achievement records
  • Worker performance evaluations
  • Competency test development
  • Job descriptions


 The job task analysis (JTA) phase incorporates a panel composed of experienced and knowledgeable experts.  The panel will brainstorm a list of job duty areas and tasks.  Once the tasks are verified and sequenced by the panel, they are entered into a computer for task analysis and weighting.  

CPD uses data created from the JTA to; develop validating knowledge and skills assessments, provide statistical performance indicators; determine job descriptions and requirements, determine knowledge and skill gaps, develop targeted training.
