Activities = Behaviors
And I was taught back in the day (1979) to avoid the Cult of Behaviors.
Go for Results/ Accomplishments. Worthy Performance.
As an employer (in my past – 1982-2002) for 20 years I was concerned about what my staff could do.
Not what learning activities they had engaged in, or wanted to engage in.
I see THAT as pretty meaningless.
Learning Accomplishments Would Be Better Than Learning Activities
As long as they were directly aligned to the Performance Requirements – for each person.
That would have Business Meaning.
What would be better than that would be Performance Competence
That varies by each Performance Context.
Doing a Budget for the ABC firm may or may not be close enough to doing one for the XYZ Firm.
Even the nuances of Performance Competence vary by Performance Context – even within the same organization.
It’s a Business Decision as to how close – or dead on – do you really need to be.
That’s all about ROI – the Returns on that data for the Investments Costs to generate that data.
Information may want to be free. But data – good data/relevant data – probably isn’t.
Game Whatever Tool You Have – Have To Use – To Track Meaningful Data
Not Convenient data. Not Self-Reported data.
Good Stewards of Shareholder Equity would always do so.
