L&D: From Training to Performance Improvement Consulting

Hint: It’s About More Than Knowledge/Skills

I wrote this book in 2011 after 32 years in the business – coming at Performance Beyond Instruction … from an Instructional perspective.


What It’s All About

Performance Competence. That’s what it’s all about. At every level.


Givens the Givens – What Are the Variables?

Or sets of variables.


The GIVENS include: the proper Business Strategy and Products and Services targeted at the right Markets. And an overall Process Architecture that can carry that out.

Then enough of all of the right “assets” need to be in place.

Yeah – it’s that simple. ;)

My Approach to Doing the Analysis of What’s Needed and the Assessment of What’s In Place to Determine the Gaps and Priorities


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 – 2006. 25 page PDF.

This methodology was first published in this 1984 article in ISPI’s (back then it was NSPI’s) PIJ – Performance & Instruction Journal – in November 1984.
