Reflecting Out Loud
Analysis for Instruction and Beyond
Sharing My Notes From a 1980 Review of Behavior Analysis Workshop Materials from Praxis
Here are my notes, from 1980, of my word by word review of a binder of Praxis Training materials, “Behavior Analysis Workshop” – from the firm of Tom Gilbert and Geary Rummler: Praxis. It is a 56 page PDF:
In these notes you will see mention of a Performance Table and the Praxis example. I was already using such a Table, a derivative as it were of the Praxis version.
The Praxis version is shown next.
I was already familiar with the concept and practice of Performance Tabling (Modeling) when I reviewed these materials and created these notes, as I’d been on a 3 person team (within the HR department of Training Services from August 1979) doing this – using this concept – in our own upfront analysis to direct our Training Design efforts and outputs.
The Performance Table ala Wickes Lumber
This is a blank example from 1979, during my days (18 months) at Wickes Lumber – (now defunct) – in HR’s Training Services department – in Saginaw MI – August 1979 – April 1981.
In 1984 My Business Partners and I Wrote About and Shared Our Approach
… including but beyond the look-see at Performance.
It was on to the Enablers, as I later framed that level of analysis in my PACT and EPPI methodologies.
Back to examining my Roots and not the Flowers of those roots … of my approach to Instructional and Performance Improvement Analysis …
Modeling and Matrices
In 1984 my business partners and I published our approach to this approach to Analysis and our extension into the enablers – for Instruction and beyond.
You can see that here:
Models and Matrices- NSPI PIJ -1984 – 5 page PDF – the first publication of the performance and enabler analysis methods for ISD, from NSPI’s (ISPI’s) Performance & Instruction Journal, November 1984.
But wait – there’s more…
My Chapter in the 2006 edition of The HPT Handbook
In 2006 this was published…
Modeling Mastery Performance and Systematically Deriving the Enablers for Performance Improvement – by Guy W. Wallace, CPT – Chapter 11 of the Handbook of Human Performance Technology – 3rd Edition. This methodology was first published in this 1984 article in ISPI’s (then NSPI’s) PIJ in November 1984.
This – above – was the most extensive review of how I approach Analysis for Instruction and Beyond … that wasn’t in a book … such as lean-ISD (1999), or in Performance-based Employee Qualification/ Certification Systems (2008), or in the PACT 6 Pack of books (2011).
Performance-based Employee Qualification/ Certification Systems (2008)
BTW – Both of these two books are available as paperbacks and as FREE PDFs, in the Resource Tab.
Since 2007 I have been writing and publishing via my Blog on these topics.
But as I have not given credit where credit is due in each of those Posts – I hope that this will suffice.
Remember – It’s Not All About Learning
It’s All About Performance
Even in a Learning Organization.
Especially in a Learning Organization. IMO.
And Then From 2011
My books for sale on my approach and applications of Performance Tabling – or – Performance Modeling…
