- "Committee on Techniques for the Enhancement of Human Performance: Occupational Analysis, Commission on Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education, National Research Council.""This volume explores the increasing demographic diversity of the workforce, the fluidity of boundaries between lines of work, the interdependent choices for how work is structured - and ultimately, the need for an integrated systematic approach to understanding how work is changing. The book offers a rich array of data and highlighted examples on markets, technology, and many other external conditions affecting the nature of work; research findings on American workers and how they feel about work; downsizing and the trend toward flatter organizational hierarchies; and autonomy, complexity, and other aspects of work structure."--BOOK JACKET.1.
