A Job Analysis of an Agency Executive's Task

By Marcel Kovarsky

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1949

In this brief article, the executive director of the Jewish Social Services Bureau of Pittsburgh, Marcel Kovarsky, juxtaposes the role of the social agency executive with the job of the administrator of a general complex enterprise. He writes that whereas the administrator of a general enterprise need not be an expert in his or her company's field (i.e., a banker directing a steel corporation), the most effective social agency executive will also be able to "evaluate and interpret social services." The author concludes by offering a point-by-point analysis of the social agency executive director's job, based on his diary records.
