A snapshot of the summary - 1JV10: Organizational behavior for Industrial Engineering

  • 1 Topic 1: Job Analyses and Work Design

  • 1.1.1 Abstract

  • A framework is used to summarize the direct and indirect ways in which work design is shaped, what are the three dimensions?
    • Higher-level external context
    • Organizational context
    • Local work context
    • Individual factors
  • 1.1.3 Mainstream research - How work design affects outcomes

  • There are five key work design perspectives:
    • Sociotechnical systems thinking
    • Job characteristics theory
    • Job-demand control model
    • Job demands resources model
    • role conflict and role ambiguity
  • Sociotechnical systems thinking and autonomous work groups:
    • Advocate that the design of work should optimize technical and social aspects of the work situation, rather than prioritize the technical part (autonomous teams are important)
  • Job-demand-control model:
    • Closely relates to the job characteristics perspective 
    • Job autonomy and skill variety are combined into job control and the factors are considered in interaction with demands such as time pressure
    • Leads to strain inducing jobs with high demands and low control, and healthy jobs
  • Job-demands resources model:
    • Includes resources other than job control and an array of demands such as challenge demands and hindrance demands
  • Role conflict and role ambiguity:
    • Are two key types of stress incurring role disfunction and these are thus integrated into work design research

    • Contextual
      • Local context influences
      • Organizational influences
      • Higher-level external influences
  • 1.1.5 Higher level external influences
