A. JOB LEVELS
It is critical to determine the optimum number of job levels according to the dynamics and needs of the organization. The number of levels can usually be three or four, depending on your needs, your culture and your structure for the present and future.
An example of a Three-Level Job Architecture:
I. Job Family: Technology, Sales, HR, Supply Chain, etc.
II. Career Group: Retail Sales, Online Sales, Sales Support, Corporate Sales etc.
III. Job: Retail Director, Retail Manager, Retail Specialist, etc.
A1. JOB FAMILIES (OR FUNCTIONS)
Job Families are the ultimate tool used to combine similar jobs with job clusters. The same or similar jobs can be found in different parts of an organisation, meaning Job Families are regardless the traditional organisational chart.
A2. CAREER GROUPS (OR ASUB-JOB FAMILIES)
Each group responsible for one or more related jobs under one Job Family is defined as the Career Group.
Different Career Groups within the same Job Family work for the general purposes of the Job Family they are affiliated with, but they are called separate Career Groups because they differ according to the function of the job, the customer, the stakeholders, the way of doing business, the sector or the market, etc.
Job is the definition of the smallest organisational unit. There can be one or more people working in one job. These people are expected to produce the same or similar inputs and outputs to have the same job. Their duties and responsibilities are similar or the same. Although it is not exactly the same for a clear understanding, it is similar in structure to the role or position.

C. CAREER PATHS
