Task example is actually an example of how to state and perform certain kind of tasks. It is helpful for any organization to store a library of task examples for every typical procedure as well as to provide guidelines for dealing with unforeseen situations. Normally, example of task includes sample of task statement (how task should be explained and assigned to be clear for performer), what skills and abilities are required from performer to accomplish this assignment successfully, what measures and indicators are used to identify and evaluate task progression, and what range of results can be considered as a task success. There are task management products that allow to store and manage task examples. Let's consider one sample of such tools.
