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 technical analysis work with emphasis on areas such as, but not limited to, work flow processes or procedures which are clerical or easily defined; space allocation studies not requiring elaborate floor plans; or records management systems. Work involves gathering necessary background data, analyzing the data, developing recommendations, and preparing reports. Work may also involve assisting higher level management analysts or assisting as a team member with designated segments of overall studies of any managerial process or procedure, or comprehensive organizational unit. Work is differentiated from the next higher level because studies are primarily related to clerical or easily definable work processes, work is segmented rather than comprehensive, and does not usually involve coordination of diverse operational or organizational units. Direct supervision is received and work is checked regularly during the conduct of the review and upon completion for compliance with instructions, adequacy of application of the principles and techniques of management analysis, and soundness of conclusions or recommendations.
