Minds in Action President to Speak at National Organization for Competency Assurance Conference
(Chicago, September 27, 2002) Raymond A. Talke, Jr., President and Founder of Minds in Action, Inc., has been selected to speak at the National Organization for Competency Assurance (NOCA) 2002 Educational Conference. Ray Talke's presentation, The Complete Job Analysis, will be given at 9:00 AM on November 23, 2002. This year's conference will be held at the Westin La Paloma in Tucson, Arizona.
Traditional Job Task Analysis techniques often fall short of developing accurate knowledge and skills domains for certification exams. They tend to consume a large amount of time, are prone to observer bias, lack true collaboration among participants, and often do not provide the complete results needed to build valid testing vehicles. The Job Task Analysis Workshop, on the other hand, allows job incumbents and subject matter experts to validate the job role definition, identify tasks performed on the job, map "best practices" processes, identify critical tasks and skill gaps, and create full terminal and enabling objectives (constituting the knowledge and skills domain of the profession) - all in only four days! This session will provide an overview of the challenges faced in performing a job task analysis, and describe how to hold a Complete Job Task Analysis Workshop in only four days.
