NATURE OF WORK: The Management Analyst series describes work associated with developing, analyzing, advising on, or suggesting improvements in processes, areas, or procedures that are characterized as managerial rather than programmatic. Examples of these managerial areas are: work methods and procedures; organizational structures; administrative policies; forms and records management; or the use of space, equipment, and facilities.

DEFINITION: Employees in this class perform journey level technical analysis work with emphasis on areas such as, but not limited to, work methods and procedures, organizational structures, administrative issuances, forms, or space and facilities. Work involves gathering necessary background data, analyzing the data, developing conclusions and recommendations, and preparing oral and written reports. Work includes interviewing employees and supervisors in operational or program units, conducting on site inspections, and negotiating for approval of recommendations. Work may also involve leading other management analysts in studies of managerial processes or procedures, or comprehensive organizational studies affecting varied organizational units, or which have department wide impact. Work is differentiated from the lower level because studies are comprehensive, have department wide significance, and involve coordination of diverse operational and organizational units. Work is differentiated from the higher level by the lack of supervisory work and by the lack of the ongoing conduct of managerial studies requiring sensitive internal and external department coordination. Work is performed with independence and reviewed upon completion by a technical or administrative superior for compliance with general instructions and policies, adequacy of the application of management analysis principles and techniques, and soundness of conclusions and recommendations.
