L&D: Sourcing Versus Learning Via Performance Support

Sometimes Performance Support is About Learning

And other times it is not.

It is sometimes about Sourcing versus Learning.


It’s OK to create something for “look-up and then forgetaboutit!” EPSS is most often exactly for that! But don’t call that Learning.

Performance Competence requires both Learning (recall) and Sourcing – both recall and forgetaboutit. Focus on Performance and Enable That!

Is it *Learning* if one looks it up, uses it, and then can and does FORGETABOUTIT? I don’t think so. That’s just good Performance Support.

If one can “source info” to guide performance, and then forgetaboutit – is that Learning? Or is it just Sourcing? EPSS can blend w Learning – but is not the same IMO.
