CONT

In contrast to procedures of breaking down jobs into elements of minimum content, as typified by Taylorism, job enlargement is a procedure whereby equivalent jobs are amalgamated into a single job. Its effect is to create an aggregated job, previously divided among several positions and posts, which is characterised by increased autonomy and discretionary scope.

OBS

Sometimes incorrectly considered as a synonym for "job enrichment".
