When was the last time you took a good, close look at job descriptions for the various positions in your company? How thorough and well-rounded are the descriptions you give a new hire? When was the last time you sat down with your project managers and had them actually look at the physical job description to see if all the bullet points and responsibilities match up, or if the posting needs some tweaking?
Bottom line: job descriptions do not need to be overcomplicated. They are really just a bullet-point list of the key responsibilities for every role. Of course there are going to be things here and there that might fall outside of that, but they should be pretty all-encompassing. It's good to get in the habit of updating these often, and calling on your team - and the people actually doing each job - to keep those descriptions current and accurate. This will lead to better accountability and understanding of everyone's role within your company!
