NATURE OF WORK: The Management Analyst series describes work associated with developing, analyzing, advising on, or suggesting improvements in processes, areas, and 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 supervisory and responsible technical analytical work related to the analysis of managerial areas. Employees supervise journey level analysts in conducting studies, gathering background data, conducting interviews or on-site inspections, analyzing data, developing conclusions and recommendations, and preparing oral and written reports. Work also involves conducting or supervising the conduct of studies of managerial areas which have internal or external departmental involvement, which require extensive coordination of diverse entities, and which require sensitivity in implementation. Work includes meetings and discussions with departmental officials to negotiate for approval of review results, to furnish advice on managerial problems, and to initiate and ensure projects are conducted according to sound management analysis techniques. Work is differentiated from the next lower level by the supervisory nature of this work and by the ongoing conduct or supervision of studies which require extensive coordination and sensitive implementation. Employees exercise considerable independent judgment in planning and directing the work of subordinates and in making technical decisions. Completed work is reviewed by a technical or administrative superior for compliance with policies, soundness of conclusions, and effectiveness of results.
