Job Descriptions Are Better When They Focus on Results

  • Traditional job descriptions simply list things to do. Results-Oriented Job Descriptions aim employees at important goals.
  • Accomplishing job results moves the organization farther and faster than just "doing" the job.
  • Focusing on job results changes an organization culture.
