  30. 30. Job Evaluation<br />Paterson Plan <br />Decision Band™ Method (DBM)<br /><ul><li>It is based on analytical method of Job Evaluation.
  31. 31. It was developed over 30 years ago by professor Paterson when he was in the school of Business at the University of Strathclyde in Scotland while he was studying the relationship between work and pay.
  32. 32. The method is called the Patterson Plan or the Decision Bands Method (DBM).</li></ul>10<br />OMER ABD AL WAHAB MOHD.........MBA2009-164<br />
  33. 33. Job Evaluation<br />The Method Wide Spread:<br /><ul><li>The method was recently developed and refined by Fox Lawson’s compensation consultants.

  38. 38. OMER ABD AL WAHAB MOHD.........MBA2009-164<br />Job Evaluation<br />The Decision Bands :<br />The Patterson Plan is based on six decision Bands:<br />Band F policy Making<br />Band E programming<br />Band D Interpretive<br />Band C Band Routine<br />Band B Automatic<br />Band A Defined<br />13<br />
  40. 40. Job Evaluation<br />These are decisions that determine the scope, the direction, and the overall goals of the whole organization. Band F decisions are the kind typically made by a Board, Council, or CEO. <br />BAND F-Policy Making Decision<br />OMER ABD AL WAHAB MOHD.........MBA2009-164<br />15<br />
  41. 41. Job Evaluation<br />BAND E Programming Decisions<br /><ul><li>These decisions are concerned with formulating or adjusting programs for the major Functions/divisions/departments, and allocating resource among these groups.
  42. 42. The executives at Band E are typically in charge of advising line executives, heading up such major functions as marketing, administration, production, and finance in private sector organizations, and major departments in public sector organizations. They are similar to MD ,GM and Project Manager.</li></ul>OMER ABD AL WAHAB MOHD.........MBA2009-164<br />16<br />
  43. 43. Job Evaluation<br />At Band D, the incumbents are required to interpret and carry out the programs or objectives developed at Band E. These decisions specify what is to be done in lower Bands, and how the resources allocated by Band E are to be deployed. Band D decisions are typically made by middle managers in various functions. <br />BAND D – Interpretive decisions<br />17<br />OMER ABD AL WAHAB MOHD.........MBA2009-164<br />
  44. 44. Job Evaluation<br />Decisions in Band C involve determining the means or process of achieving the objectives, standards or guidelines established by Band D decisions. They are subject to the limits imposed by the available technology and resources and to the constraints set by Band D. Selecting the process is a decision that must precede carrying out the operations that make up the process. A process decision specifies what is to be done at Band B. These are typically decisions made by supervisory personnel and/or senior technical specialist positions. <br />BAND C – Process Decisions<br />OMER ABD AL WAHAB MOHD.........MBA2009-164<br />18<br />
  45. 45. Job Evaluation<br /><ul><li> These decisions focus on how to carry out the operations of the process specified by a Band C decision.
  46. 46. There is, within the limits set by the specific process, a choice as to how and when the operations are carried out, but not as to what operations constitute the process. </li></ul>19<br />BAND B – Operational Decision<br />OMER ABD AL WAHAB MOHD.........MBA2009-164<br />
  47. 47. Job Evaluation<br /><ul><li> Band A decisions are confined to the manner and speed of performing the elements of an operation.
  48. 48. There is, within the limits set by the prescribed operation, a choice as to how the elements are performed, but not as to what elements constitute the operation. </li></ul>BAND A – Defined Decisions<br />OMER ABD AL WAHAB MOHD.........MBA2009-164<br />20<br />
  49. 49. The Grades within the Bands :<br /> All decision bands ,except for Band A are divided into two grades , <br /><ul><li>HIGHER for those jobs which co-ordinate / supervise other job or self co-ordinating.
  50. 50. LOWERfor those jobs which are not co-ordinating.</li></ul>OMER ABD AL WAHAB MOHD.........MBA2009-164<br />21<br />Job Evaluation<br />
