In-Basket Technique

The in-Basket technique is a way of acquainting workers with their jobs by holding a variety of issues in an in-basket. The worker must assess the issues, which could include feedback from other workers, and interact with them all at the same time. The employee keeps moving the issues he tackles to the “out-basket.”

The procedure of In-Basket technique

  • The trainee is given some details about the task to be performed, such as a brief, roles, and the role’s overall meaning, in this procedure.
  • ┬áThe trainee is then given a summary of the resources in the in-basket and instructed to answer them within a certain time frame.
  • A conversation with the trainer takes place after all of the trainees have completed the in-basket.
  • In this┬ásection, the trainee explains why the choices were made.
  • The trainer then gives guidance, either supporting good decisions or helping the trainee to expand his or her options for bad decisions.
