HPT – Human Performance Technology
HPT is the means to the ends of – HPI – Human Performance Improvement.
Note: All performance is a human endeavor.
Note the following represents my view. Your’s may differ.
HPT – in my view – address the Process and all of the variables of that Process using valid approaches to improvement.
Valid – as proven by THE research. But what if there is no research? What if there are methods/applications that seem to work, have been working, yet there is no proven science behind/backing those methods?
A 2002-2004 effort at ISPI undertook a Society-wide effort to “Clarify HPT” – and resulted in a Report that unfortunately now sits on the proverbial shelf (for the most part). I see stirring that give hope to its revival. That 2002-4 effort was in fact a revival of something started by the late Geary Rummler back in 1982-3.
