Our client’s field engineers were applying for, and some were being promoted into, the role of contract representatives. The new role was a step up for the engineers.

Last month, I traveled with three of my colleagues to sunny Indianapolis for six days of learning at ISPI’s 2014 conference. The conference opened to the general members on Monday; however, we were busy all weekend! Becky Holden attended the CPT workshop, Lisa Lange went to the Principles and Practices of Performance Improvement workshop, and I delivered a Fundamentals of Performance presentation for ISPI leaders to get the word out about performance technology.

Is Agile Compatible with Human Performance Technology (HPT)?

At THE Performance Improvement Conference 2014 in Indianapolis, I want to work with you to answer the question: Is agile compatible with human performance technology (HPT)? This is a preview of my 75-minute Educational Session.

Performance Architects at Work: A Conversation Salon

Performance Architects at Work: A Conversation Salon

Are you a performance architect? If you work to improve performance in organizations anywhere on the performance landscape, then, yes, you are. And, as a performance architect, you have had experiences, learned from them, and developed your views on work in the performance improvement arena.

Thus, a salon was constructed just for this purpose.

Coaching for Talent Development and Employee Engagement

Coaching for Talent Development and Employee Engagement

Sustained improved performance is a good thing, right? As leaders, we all want our employees to continually improve, to remain engaged, and to love their work. So, how do you get all that? We have all read how money is not a prime motivator for performance; paying someone more does not result in sustained improved performance. If money is not it, what is?

E-Learning Strategy: A Framework for Success

E-Learning Strategy: A Framework for Success

An IT department recently asked me to develop an e-learning course about one of their applications. One of my first steps was to contact the training manager of that organization and ask her what type of course would fit into her e-learning strategy. “What do you mean by e-learning strategy,” I heard on the other end of the phone. I started to explain, but found that what she really wanted to know was, “Why do I need an e-learning strategy?”

Why Attend THE Performance Improvement Conference?

These articles come across my desk first, and this is one article I was super-excited to share. Had Eileen not sat through that “one more” educational session and received the Kicks and Whacks she spoke of, then she would still be on the same path and not seen things from a different perspective.
