Job Task Analysis – Meeting 2 Minutes

The web meeting started at 3:04 PM CDT via GoToMeeting. Introductory comments were made by Clyde

Seepersad, Linux Foundation thanking the committee for their participation in the project. AMP was then

made host of the meeting, and Steve Nettles and James Hellrung, AMP, began facilitation of the meeting.

They reviewed the initial steps of the project and informed the committee of the goals of the second meeting,

which included:

● preparing a revised draft of the Scope (practitioner definition)

● finalizing the major domains,

● reviewing the initial task list for inclusion/exclusion.

All documents were shared using GoToMeeting, with Steve Nettles and James Hellrung facilitating the rest

of the meeting proceedings. The committee first reviewed and prepared a new draft of the definition of the

target practitioners. They then considered an alternate list of domains based on the OpenStack website.

After several minutes of discussion, they decided that the domains better reflected the target job, and

approved its use, with one additional domain. They then completed review of the draft list of activities. The

homework assignment was to review the initial task list and vote on inclusion/exclusion of the task. AMP

summarized their ratings and presented the tasks in order of tasks rated excluded by most committee

members to those rated most included by most committee members. The committee agreed on those

tasks that should be deleted and those that should be retained. After review of the initial list, each

committee member agreed to write additional tasks for each of the new content domains. There was verbal

interaction by the committee as well as “back channel” IM commentary via GoToMeeting.

It was decided that the list of retained tasks would be published to Google Drive and the committee would

review the list of tasks, assigning each to one area of the revised list of major domains. AMP revised the

spreadsheet of tasks for the committee's input for publishing to Google Drive. Audio and screen­shared

video were recorded and can be accessed on Google Drive in this folder: 2015 06 24 Meeting 2. The chat

log recording failed and is not available for Meeting 2. The meeting adjourned at 5 PM CDT.


The committee will categorize the revised task list within the new Domains.


Each committee member will assign the revised tasks to the corresponding content domain, using the new

list of content domains. They will also write additional tasks in his or her assigned content domain(s) by 1:00

pm UTC (8:00 am CDT) Tuesday, June 30. James Hellrung at AMP will then compile the data and present it

for full committee in the call on Wednesday, July 1. Links and instructions to be sent in a separate email.


All JTAC meetings will be held from 20:00 UTC to 22:00 UTC (3:00 pm to 5:00 pm CDT). Attendance at

each meeting is important.
