Über die funktionale Klassifikation von Arbeit (On a functional classification of work)
Abstract"The author develops a new variant of the classification of work. The starting point for this is the organisation for which a function is performed. Here a function is understood in the sense of a position that someone holds, this position being determined in the dimensions of the specialist task field and the hierarchical level. In particular for job placement processes a concept is presented in which the information on the organisation is supplemented with details about the industry and information on personal know-how is supplemented with details about education and training. The systematic approach to classifying the diverse areas of tasks in an establishment proceeds in a top-down manner. The functional classification differs from previous occupational conceptions on the one hand by its starting point of the 'organisation', on the other hand by the reduction to the relationship structure within the organisation: associations of psychological and ethical-moral factors that are always conjured up by the term occupation are left out of account. Instead of this a model of formalised descriptions of the particular framework of responsibility and task area are provided. In this way the activity in various organisations can be made comparable and the preselection of applicants can be organised more rationally." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
