Sunday HPT Video Matinee

***** ***** ***** ***** *****

In 2017 I started using Skype to enable me to broaden my reach beyond F2F recordings. Then in 2020 I started using Zoom.

Again, I have posted each of these videos on YouTube. They, unfortunately, are on multiple YouTube sites. Please use this link to the Index – here.

Guy’s HPT Video Series

The HPT Video Series … formerly known as the HPT Practitioner and HPT Legacy Video Series … was started by Guy W. Wallace in 2008 as a means of sharing the diversity of HPT Practitioners, and the diversity of HPT Practices in the workplace and in academia.

The full set of videos – over 125 – may be found and linked to – here.

HPT – Human Performance Technology – is the application of science – the “technology” part – for Performance Improvement.

As the late Don Tosti noted, “All performance is a human endeavor.”

Whether your label for HPT is that, or Performance Improvement, or Human Performance Improvement, it is all about Evidence Based Practices for Performance Improvement at the Individual level, the Team level, the Process level, the Department level, the Functional level, the Enterprise level, and at the level of Society/World.

HPT Practitioners might operate at any of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.

Although ISPI – the International Society for Performance Improvement is the professional home of many HPT Practitioners – the concepts, models, methods, tools and techniques are not limited to any one professional affinity group or professional label.

ISPI just happens to be where I learned about HPT – and has been my professional home since 1979.

This Series Has Evolved Since 2008

These videos were first posted on Google Video, then they were moved to Blink, and now they may all be found on YouTube. And my name for them has changed as well…

HPT Practitioner Video Podcasts and HPT Legacy Video Podcasts

– Practitioner Series – short 2-10 minutes, following a script. Intended to show the diversity of HPT and HPT Practitioners. (2008-2018)

– Legacy Series – longer 15-40+ minutes, also scripted, with added stories of other NSPI/ ISPI’ers from the earlier days of the Society or others who were of great influence. Intended to capture the stories of the people who influenced us. (2008-2018)

– HPT Video Series (2019+) – is a continuation of the first two types of videos in this series, but with less focus on capturing NSPI/ISPI members – and expanding out to any and all who use Evidence Based Practices in Performance Improvement regardless of any affiliation with ISPI or not.

Words of Warning from Geary A. Rummler

Rummler According to Wiggenhorn:

“Beware of False Prophets Called HR People. They’re coming in with whiz-bang tools, they’re going to rank and rate you, they’re going to assess you, they’re going to tell you what you should be doing. But they don’t understand the organization.”

Video – Tribute to the late Geary A. Rummler in 2009

See Bill Wiggenhorn’s comment from the ISPI 2009 Conference Tribute to Geary Rummler – to the 43:17 mark… where Bill Wiggenhorn relays to us the wisdom of the late Geary Rummler :

Bill was the leader of Motorola University – and MTEC – Motorola Training & Education Center. He brought Rummler in to help orient the new staff of MTEC, in April to a Performance Orientation. That full day 1981 session – that I was fortunate enough to attend, one week before my official start date – was also recorded and a 46 minute excerpt is available – here.

Also – in this video above – after Bill – is Alan Ramias, my co-worker when I worked for Bill at MTEC (1981-1982) – where he tells of Rummler’s impact to that thingy called: Six Sigma. Maybe you’ve heard of it. (Just thought while you’re here on this video….)

And Here We Are Today

RIP Geary A. Rummler on the Anniversary of His Birth

April 16th has always been a special day for me – as it was always near the annual NSPI/ISPI Conference – meaning that I would again see and chat with Geary Rummler F2F near or on his birthday. And I’d get my annual Booster Shot from the front row, as I would joke with him.

And “from the front row” was the best place to heckle from. And to hear his “soft asides” – like Popeye – whom he often quoted.

Videos of the Good Doctor

From 2008. This video is 5:22 minutes in length.

From 1986. This video is 50:42 minutes in length.

From 1986. This video is 56:39 minutes in length.

From 1981. This video is 44:28 minutes in length.

I was lucky to be in the audience when the 1981 video was recorded. I came in one week early just to attend his one-day workshop. I had already met him face to face in April 1980 at my first NSPI Conference.

And I had worked 1979-1981 at Wickes Lumber in Saginaw Michigan, in the Training Services organization, alongside Geary’s brother-in-law, and two people who had joined Wickes just before I did who had been working alongside Geary’s brother Rick Rummler at Blue Cross Blue Shield in Detroit. Those two shaped my approach to performance-based ISD and Performance Improvement Beyond Instruction – But Including Instruction.

Lucky me.

But Wait – There’s More

See the Geary A. Rummler website – here – established by Geary’s son, Rick Rummler.

pb-ISD Thinking

pb-ISDperformance-based Instructional Systems Design

Conduct the Planning and Analysis and Design with Performance-Thinking, and Design Thinking flavored with Human Centricity Thinking.

And Develop Instruction – Job Aids and/or Training – driven by the Performance Context’s demand for a Memorized or allowance for a Referenced Response.

Think about Authenticity … from the Learner as a Performer – Back-on-the-Job.

Go for Near not Far Transfer when you Design Learning Experiences.

Which back in the day was pb-ISD – performance-based Instructional Systems Design.

Go For Performance. Use the Science of Learning.

Make it Authentic. Make it Accessible.

Make it IMPACTFUL … Back-on-the-Job

Or why bother?
