The key inputs for a strong job design are a task, motivation, resource allocation and a compensation system. Taylorism, or scientific management, is the original job-design theory.

It stresses standardization of tasks and proper training of workers to administer the tasks for which they are responsible. MOTIVATION-THEORY BACKGROUND FOR JOB DESIGN Job design has been a topic of concern for many years.

The early efforts of scientific management (making use of time and motion studies) to redesign jobs are the most obvious example. However, current efforts at job design have moved from the concern for time and motion to a consideration of the.

Scientific Management and Job Specialization. Perhaps the earliest attempt to design jobs came during the era of scientific management. Scientific management is a philosophy based on the ideas of Frederick Taylor as presented in his book, Principles of Scientific ’s book Motivation & Job Design book among the most influential books of the 20th century; the ideas presented had a major influence.

Importance of Job Design. Many of us assume the most important motivator at work is pay. Yet studies point to a different factor as the major influence over worker motivation—job design. How a job is designed has a major impact on employee motivation, job satisfaction, commitment to an organization, absenteeism, and turnover.

Hence, job needs to provide them satisfaction to sustain their interest in jobs. This is done through job design. While other incentives provide extrinsic motivation, job design provides intrinsic motivation to the workers.

A job can be defined as a grouping of task within a prescribed unit or units of work.

The one most important element in job design is feedback, it not only lower absenteeism and turnover but the psychological states of mind of the employee and employer scores high on the “knowledge of the actual results of the work activities” (Robbins & Judge,"Motivation by Job Design: The Job Characteristics Model").

It also outlines the methods and relationships that are essential for the success of a certain job.
