Job design falls under the broad umbrella of Organization Design. The term refers to the granular work of detailing the specific activities, tasks and skills associated with a particular job in a company. This step typically follows job analysis, and aims to clearly define each job so it can be completed successfully by the incumbent employee.
Typically, job design is focused heavily on structure and hierarchy, but the most successful companies prioritize job design to design the right work processes and accountabilities, so people and companies can perform at their best.
