What is a DACUM? DACUM is an acronym that stands for Developing A CurriculUM. It uses a focus group in a facilitated storyboarding process to capture major duties and related tasks included in an occupation, as well as necessary knowledge, skills, and traits.
DACUM is a widely used, international method of job analysis. Business and industry, the military, schools, and government agencies use the DACUM process. A DACUM provides the foundation for the development of education, training, and other performance improvement.
