The most important decision that we have to make is entrusting someone with a job.
Whether this someone that you want to entrust with a job is you or somebody else, whether your are making the decision or giving advice to the decisions maker, you are probably wondering: what are the factors to take into account before deciding that someone is a good fit?
A Job Analysis Framework
Convenient for making faster decision while evaluating candidates for a position.
What you can see in the table below is a framework for making a job analysis. It's a visual representation that helps see the actions that a role can make to deliver something.
Someone fits in the role if they developed the good quality for the role, they develop this good quality by following the true doctrine.
The deliverable they produce can either have a right or wrong attribute. Active countermeasures prevent the wrong attribute from being enabled and the passive countermeasures prevent the right attribute from being disabled. The External risk enables the wrong attribute and lead to external consequences. The Internal risk disables the right attribute and lead to internal consequences.
Consequences are unfortunate events. They are the reason why the deliverable exists.
Most roles produce one deliverable but some roles produce multiple deliverables. And some deliverables depend on multiple roles.
You will be more willing to entrust someone if they are capable of demonstrating that they know the consequences, they know the risks, they know the countermeasures and they know the right and wrong attributes of the deliverables that they have to produce.
Below are a few examples to illustrate the usage of this framework
