Task analysis is a business methodology of analyzing employee tasks to improve the way core business processes are being run within a company, helping organisations to become more efficient.
Task Analysis Lifecycle
The task analysis lifecycle has five stages: time recording, prioritization, monitoring, analysis and optimization:
Stage 1: Time Recording – The actual time for each of the activities is recorded. Precise account of working time, recorded in real-time, by the employees themselves or by automatic time data collection.
Stage 2: Prioritization – Priorities are refined based on importance and urgency. Employee resource planning and task scheduling is set across all employee activities.
Stage 3: Monitoring – Measures task-related performance using key performance indicators to monitor how the strategy is performing, using three main parameters; Time, Priority and Cost.
Stage 4: Task Analysis – The most critical to lifecycle success. The aim of this stage is to analyze the records gathered through monitoring and to compare them with an a previous set time plan.
Stage 5: Optimization – Employee resource planning and task scheduling is revised and integrated across all employee activities. Strategic decisions and priorities are refined based on the the analysis.
This cycle is then looped for continuous task analysis improvement.
