Job aids by type

A job aid is information used on the job that enables someone to produce worthwhile results while reducing the need to memorize how and when to do so.

As Joe Harless said, job aids tell you what to do and when to do it.

I’ve organized job aids here by type, and a given job aid can belong to more than one type–which is why you’ll see some more than once in the following lists.

Specific examples:
