DEVOTTO, Rita Pimenta de  and  WECHSLER, Solange Muglia. Job crafting: conceptualization and scientific quality of the measures. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.3, pp. 351-361. ISSN 1677-0471.

Job crafting is a process of proactive individual actions to redesign work to match individual values, competencies and motivations, or to optimize resources and demands with personal needs and resources. We verified the scientific qualities of the construct measures in four databases between 2001 and August 2017. We identified two different ways of conceptualizing the construct, four different instruments for its evaluation, and seven works to adapt and validate for other contexts. We analyzed 11 selected instruments in terms of validity evidence and accuracy. The most used forms were those with validity evidence based on the internal structure, and those that related external variables and accuracy through Cronbach's alpha. Two measures were validated for Brazil, enabling research on work redesign actions, and we concluded that job crafting is measurable in validity and accuracy.

Keywords : work redesign; psychological evaluation; validity; accuracy; organizational behavior.
