Cultivating a Culture of Performance Improvement: Agile Response and Tangible Results @WorkerWorkWorkplaceWorld
Only you can contribute your unique perspective! At ISPI Europe/EMEA, we believe that a conference is more than its programs and presenters. Our conference participants are every bit as much a part of the total learning experience as our fabulous presenters. Our conferences are compelling because of their innovative, active-interactive format.
In this issue, Dr. Pershing explores articles from seasoned professionals and new up-and-comers in the industry. Roger Chevalier opens this issue with a powerful piece taking a look at his approach and tools in workplace performance. He then further explores a hot topic of big data and how it can provide companies with more of an edge. Continuing in the workplace, and diving into the topic of performance management, Amanda Trosten-Bloom, Tye Deines, and Tracy Carsten present a different approach on this topic. The issue is then rounded out with an amazing piece from the past, written by none other than Thomas Gilbert. Marilyn Gilbert was kind enough to supply this wonderful piece to the journal readers.
I invite you to submit a paper to a special issue of Performance Improvement journal (PIJ), published by the International Society for Performance Improvement in partnership with John Wiley & Sons. Dedicated to performance improvement practitioners, the journal publishes articles on important developments and trends in workplace improvement; integrative reviews and viewpoints including research articles; and evidence-based practices, models, and techniques, covering all phases of the human performance improvement process.
It has truly been a privilege to serve the Society as its president; it has been tremendously rewarding, both professionally and personally. When I considered running for the Board, I did it with the intention to give back to the learning and performance community, to learn and experience leading a professional association, and to meet like-minded individuals from around the globe.

Whether seeking an initial understanding of ROI evaluation or looking for ways to generate support for ROI within an organization, this webinar will provide participants with an understanding of ROI and how it can be implemented. “The Bottom Line on ROI” presents the rationale for developing and implementing a comprehensive measurement and evaluation process that includes ROI.
It is with a heavy heart that I write this brief remembrance for our friend and colleague, John Wedman. John passed away in December after a battle with cancer. You probably know John best for the Wedman Performance Pyramid, a comprehensive performance model built with Tom Gilbert’s Behavior Engineering Model as a foundation and strongly influenced by the approaches of Geary Rummler, Roger Kaufman, and others.
