 Job analysis encompasses a wide range of crucial topics that help us understand what people do at work and why.  Authors Michael T. Brannick, Edward L. Levine, and Frederick P. Morgeson expertly unpack the best job analysis methods and then illustrate how to apply these methods to solve some of the most common problems that arise in the management of people at work.  The ultimate goal of Job and Work Analysis 3e is to assist in the creation of programs that can help people work smarter, improve hiring and training, make jobs safer, and provide a satisfying work environment.
