Performance Testing – Go For Performance – 2020 Series 10-03

Leadership Subsystem 1: System Governance – which gave our client’s leadership a command and control and empowerment mechanism, resulted in three different kinds of management capabilities:

  • They could easily change the targets and scope of the qualification system, for example: adding job categories and/or locations
  • They could more easily develop Workforce Plans to qualify enough workers to meet the future needs of the business consistent with their strategic planning efforts
  • They could easily change the qualification system policies, processes or any of the other design features to meet the needs of their business, now, and in the future

If a Performance Testing System isn’t targeted on the critical needs of the enterprise – it won’t last very long.

Performance Testing – It’s ALL – about Performance. And demonstrated competence.

Performance Testing – Go For Performance – 2020 Series 10-02

I adapted my performance-based Curriculum Architecture Design process and methods to conduct the analysis of the Performance Competence requirements and the enabling knowledge and skills, and for the design of the configuration of Performances Tests, something that often was an out of any  Curriculum Architecture Design effort.

We then used our L-C-S Framework – Leadership Areas of Performance, Core AoPs, and Support AoPs to configure the entire system’s subsystems for creation, administration, and maintenance of the Performance Tests – and these the performance of these subsystems as well.

Performance Testing – Go For Performance – 2020 Series 10-01

In 1987, my firm, Svenson & Wallace Inc., was hired to develop a Qualification & Certification System for a client operating one-half of the oil field operations at Prudhoe Bay, on Alaska’s North Slope in the Arctic Circle.

The intent was to create a Pay Progression Program, where pay raises were tied to performance capability. The 2 unsuccessful efforts before our project had produced paper & pencil tests, something Oil Field Roughnecks did – not – like – at – all. We developed over 2200 Performance Tests for 20 target audiences of mostly technical staff, working with the Master Performers chosen by the target audience groups themselves.

A series of 15 short videos that will review the entire System that we designed and developed and tested starts today.
