T&D: The Building Blocks of Performance Competence

My Architecture of Content Includes: A-K-S

Awareness, Knowledge and Skills.

That architecture is used within my Lesson Map format – as I’m big into ReUse.

For example:

  • the Individual Contributor needs a Skill in AAA.
  • the Manager needs Knowledge of AAA.
  • the VP needs only an Awareness of AAA.

Build it for one and extract for the others. It makes updating it all easier too.


And if the Performance to be learned includes AAA and BB and C – I would approach it per this next graphic…


To determine what and how to Design before Development – one should have done Analysis before Design.

Analysis of the Performance Competence requirements before the Enabling AKS requirements – which I usually just shorten to KS – for Knowledge and Skills.


The Bottom Line is always: can they do the job back on the job?

  1. Hi Guy, I hope this email finds you well. My name is April Caldwell and I am part of the IT Learning, Performance, and Application (LEAP) team atthe World Bank in Washington, DC. My team and I areputting together a 6 month speaker series on various learning topics for WorldBank IT staff and the IT Change Management and Learning team. In an informal 45 minutesession (either WebEx or in-person, if local) speakers will discuss specified learningtopics such as Performance Improvement, Learning Technologies, Disruptive Technologies in Learning, Designing for the Adult Learner, etc. 

    I was wondering if you might be interested in being one of our speakers for “Pursuing Performance?” My work email is: acaldwell@worldbankgroup.org

    I look forward to hearing from you. 

    Thank you so much,

    April ___________________________________ What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
