Job analysis involves the identification and description of what is happening on the job. It is the procedure for determining the duties & skill requirements of a job and the kind of person who should be hired for it. Many authors have defined job analysis as follows:
Edwin B. Flippo has defined, “Job analysis is the process of studying and collecting information relating to the operation and responsibilities of a specific job”.
DeCenzo and Robbins have defined, “Job analysis is a systematic exploration of the activities within a job. It is a technical procedure used to define the duties, responsibilities and accountabilities of a job”
