Topic: Job Design 


Learning Objective:

To understanding the difference between two important concepts of job design i.e job enlargement and job enrichment.


Mr. Asim owns a computer software company, which specializes in designing programs for clients. Asim's company used to call up clients, describe their product offerings, and then try to sell software to these clients that would be appropriate to their businesses. Recently he found a more effective and profitable way to do business when an accounting firm approached him which was interested to replace their outdated in use software program with a new one, designed specifically according to their working requirement.

Asim allowed his programmers to meet the client to understand their problems and requirements. For this purpose the team of programmers visited the client and made notes regarding the company needs. They also asked the software users about the type of program they would like. The team took these ideas back to the office and began working on them. They were allowed to do scheduling in their own way to complete the task within one month. The program was developed so effectively that the company purchased it. Asim intends to continue this hands-on approach.

SHAHZAD IQBAL

it is job enrichment.

read as above discussion.

regards

Job enrichment could refer to "Job Satisfaction", which is the supposed reward an employee feels they obtain with respect to their position, their role and personal growth likely.
Job enlargement means addition of duties and responsibilities to current job description. This is a vehicle used by employers to be able to have reduced staff shoulder more workload and additional duties during employee cut backs maybe due to economic downturn. In my opinion’s the programmers' jobs have been enlarged because Asim's company used to call up clients, describe their product offerings, and then try to sell software to them, by providing quality job with planning and organizing, it is Job enrichment. Lately Asim allowed his team of programmers to visit the client and made notes regarding the company needs, it will be addition of duties and tasks to existing job description for employees. Thus, Mr.Asim organized job enlargement not job enrichment.

madam naila according to scanaria we should choose job enrichment
