CHAPTER – I
1.1 OUTLINE OF THE PROJECT:
A job analysis is a step-by-step specification of an employment position's requirements, functions, and procedures. Just as a seed cannot blossom into a flower unless the ground is properly prepared, many human resource management (HRM) practices cannot blossom into competitive advantage unless grounded on an adequate job analysis. Successful HRM practices can lead to outcomes that create competitive advantage. Job analyses, properly performed, enhance the success of these HRM practices by laying the foundation. Job analysis information can be applied to a variety of HRM practices. We now take a brief look at some of them.
NEED AND IMPORTANCE OF THE STUDY
Procurements is the operative function of personnel management, which can be subdivided into various sub functions like human resources planning, recruitment and selection. Management should determine the kind of personnel required for a job. And the number of persons to be employed. The organization should also find out the 5right man for the right job in the right time.. The knowledge of the job is essential to perform these functions.
In addition, establishment of the scientific standard in advance is essential to compare the applicants with the job and to select the suitable personnel. The standard stipulates the minimum acceptable qualification, skills and qualities required for adequate job performance. Stipulating the standard requires the knowledge regarding job design, study of the job duties and responsibilities, requirements of the job, human abilities and qualities etc. Job analysis is needed to know all these functions and to perform various functions of HRM

Research methodology is a way to systematically solve the research problem as it guides how research is done scientifically. It consists of different steps that are generally adopted by the researcher to study the research problem along with the logic behind them.
Research is the search for knowledge. It is a scientific and systematic search for pertinent information or a specific topic.
John W.Best defines Research as, “the systematic and objective analysis and recording of controlled observations that may lead to the developments of generalizations, principles, or theories, resulting in prediction and possibly ultimate control of events”.
Research design is the blue print for the collection, measurement and analysis of data. Thus research design is a conceptual framework within which the research is conducted.
Descriptive Research:- when the researcher is interested in knowing the characteristics of certain group such as age, gender, educational level a descriptive study is necessary. In this study, the researcher has adopted Descriptive research design.
DATA COLLECTION METHODS:
In this study both primary data and secondary data are used. The primary data were collected from the employees of Polaris Software Lab Ltd., through questionnaire. The secondary data were collected from books and web sites.
The researcher conducted the study on a sample size of 150 respondents. The researcher has followed...
