In this developmental position, you will receive individual, hands-on training and/or classroom instruction on the fundamentals of applying established management theories, methods, techniques and precedents of the organization.


Assignments are designed to orient you in the theory and application of analytical techniques in order to participate in surveys and studies relating to various programs within the division and throughout the organization.  As you gain familiarity with the subject matter, work assignments will become increasingly more complex. Classroom and individual training will include the fundamentals of conducting surveys or studies relating to stable organizations and functions, usually clerical, which are narrow in scope, uniform,  repetitive in work processes, and largely independent of other organizations, for the development, administration and update of various projects and programs within the Division.


At the full-performance level of this position you will work independently or as a member of a survey team, conducting such actions as data compilation and charting; analysis of methods and procedures, organizational structures, personnel staffing and equipment utilization; and preparation of reports and graphic presentations, in which you will define problem areas and devise solutions through development of improved or refined methods, procedures, and/or organizational structures.
