Background Information
The typical minimum level of education to perform this job competently is equivalent to completion of a university (bachelor) program in a specialized field of study and work. The work requires a sound understanding of the underlying theoretical principles and concepts associated with the subject area and an understanding of the relation of these to the responsibilities of the job. This specialized training is often recognized by a degree and/or professional designation.
Directly/indirectly related work experience representing continuous learning and required for someone to perform this job competently is six to ten years.
Ongoing work assignments typically have only generally defined goals and provide no (or minimal) direction with respect to what action steps to follow. The abstract nature of the work is such that the incumbent's education, training, and previous experience cannot assure either the goal or the approach can be clearly understood because the tangible product or service resulting from the work often does not exist when a project is initiated.
