Develop a Job Redesign using Job Characteristics Theory (Hackman Oldham (1976) Motivation through the design of work – Test of a theory (1) (1) (1).pdf) At this point in the semester, weve had many different opportunities to explore the models and concepts presented in each topic so far. For this week’s assignment, you will develop a Job Redesign. For the Job Redesign, you will recommend changes across the five job characteristics in the JCT model to increase employee motivation in the target job you have chosen. Therefore, you will be using theory to influence motivation through the design of work. Here is what should be included in your redesign: Use O*NET to choose the type of job you plan to redesign. Briefly describe the job (in general) using information from O*NET or other sources, including BLS. Describe the job in respect to each core job characteristics in the JCT model. Be sure to explicitly associate each job characteristic with the job characteristics from Hackman & Oldham. Describe your redesign efforts in each job characteristics area. Consider referring to the different tactics/strategies discussed in the Applications of Motivation Theory lecture. Explain how your redesign will motivate employees by: Contributing to critical psychological states (in JCT) Having an impact on work and personal outcomes (JCT) In other words, link each job dimension you discussed to the specific psychological states and outcomes that your redesign expects to impact. Questions 3-5 will likely require the most emphasis. Your responses should be clear yet succinct whilst reflecting the purpose of your chosen job redesign (minimum 500 words, but not to exceed 2 pages; 12-point; Times New Roman; double-spaced). The materials for this assignment may be downloaded via the link in the assignment description. To submit the assignment, you may upload an MS Word document with your responses.
