DACUM Facilitation for Occupational Analysis

The DACUM process for occupational analysis involves expert workers - the local men and women with reputations for being “the best” at their jobs. These workers tell us what they do and how they do it. Their descriptions are in the language of the occupation. That means we get the straight story from the people on the job, the ones who know. In turn, information gathered is the information that’s hard to come by.


StrengthsFinder™ is the world’s leading assess-ment in strengths-based understanding. In a culture that has focused on developing or fixing our weaknesses, the StrengthsFinder™ invites people to begin focusing on what is right, and strong, about people.
