Someshortcomings result in conducting a job analysis. For example, thejob description sometimes does not apply to some high-rankingmanagers as they have freedom to initiate a fruitful new direction.The other drawback is the inflexibility of the job description in thefast-changing organization, for example in the place subject to fasttechnological change. Any other changes can also lead to variationsin the job content which can result in the description of the jobbeing outdated. Periodic changes are made to a given vacancy. Thedecision to do emanates from the need to ensure that those who fillthe positions are up to the task.
