L&D: Prudhoe Bay in 1987

15 Minute Video Tour of the Living Facilities

It was minus 17 when I took this tour.

I was there to pilot-test the methodology that I had created for our team – my partners and our staff and a couple of contractors – for the analysis, design and development of Performance Tests to support a Pay Progression Program – which was to lead to a Curriculum Architecture effort – that turned out to not be necessary – as Informal and Coached learning took over for the motivated workforce.

Read all about that effort in these Past Posts:

L&D: Clarify Learning Needs via Performance Tests

L&D: Knowledge Tests Don’t Test for Performance Capability

Aiding Informal Learning : An Alaskan Example from 1994

Performance Testing – Testing the Application On-the-Job of Knowledge and Skills

The Authentic Acid Test of Competence – Is Doing the Authentic Job Tasks to the Stakeholder Requirements

The Book

This book – available as a FREE PDF and as a paperback and a Kindle – is based on that 1987 project, and then another in 1994 on the Alaska Pipeline and another for an HVAC client in the lower 48 – as they say.
