Task dimensions and task statements: Analyzing tasks in the best way


Methods of task analysis describe tasks as basic, definable, measurable and communicable units of work. Tasks are defined by two characteristics: task dimension and task statement. These two characteristics allow making considered interpretations of actions made by employees. Examples of task dimensions and task statements provide a clear and complete picture of what is being done, how it is being done and why it is being done.

Task statement definition: task statement is considered as the most important element of task analysis process that gives a standardized format to describe actions of an employee. Tasks can be expressed in the format of task statements.

Task dimension definition: task dimension is a set of measures that help estimate performance of employees and do tasks according to schedule. Tasks can be measured in the format of task dimension. Use of task measures significantly contributes to completion of specific work objectives.
