For this discussion, you will be filling out some surveys based on the concepts of job redesign and job crafting.
The job design survey is pretty simple, self-explanatory, and follows the five core job dimensions discussed in
the background readings: http://www.nwlink.com/~donclark/leader/jobsurvey.html
The job crafting survey appears in a complicated article, but the survey is relatively straightforward and
appears on page 177 of the article linked below. For each question, a “5” indicates strong agreement, a “4”
means moderate agreement, a “3” means neutral, a “2” means mild disagreement, and a “1” means strong
disagreement. There are four dimensions of job crafting on this survey. All of these dimensions have five
questions, with the exception of “decreasing hindering job demands,” which has six questions. The total
possible score on each dimension is either 25 or 30, depending on the number of questions:

Report your scores on both surveys to your classmates and explain whether or not the results accurately
describe your current job situation and the overall usefulness of each survey.
Also, discuss any practical implications that the results of each survey has on your organization. Do the results
indicate that any specific job redesign or job crafting intervention should be done? Would you recommend
either survey be used for a wider range of employees at your organization to assist in deciding on a job
redesign or job crafting strategy?
