Performance Improvement Quarterly is part of every ISPI member’s benefits package. This informative publication has unlimited availability to members. It is available in digital format and accessible from any web capable device. On your laptop, smart phone, or tablet–take it with you and catch up on some reading no matter where you are.

The quarterly is a peer-reviewed journal created to stimulate professional discussion in the field and to advance the discipline of human performance technology (HPT) through publishing scholarly works. Its emphasis is on human performance technologies such as front-end analysis or evaluation. It also offers literature reviews and experimental studies with a scholarly base, and some case studies.

The current issue of PIQ was edited by Richard B. Pearlstein, welcoming readers into a Kaleidoscope of Knowledge that is filled with solid research and data that are essential for every performance improvement professional. The current 131-page issue features:
