Practical Role Analysis

Role Analysis is a powerful tool for assessment, organizational planning, and developing smooth-running workplaces. It removes labels of good and bad and instead looks at what roles (collections of behaviors) move us forward (toward our goals), keep us in the same place, or move us backwards. Further exploration will focus on issues of Role Fatigue, Role Compatibility, and the need for Role Training.

Outcomes – Participants will be able to:

  • list the categories and sub-categories used in role analysis;
  • develop role descriptions of roles essential to smooth functioning as well as those that hamper progress;
  • describe how to conduct a role analysis of the organization or subgroups within it; and
  • explain organizational/board development objectives in terms of role training and role transformation.
