HPT Practitioner: The Late Joe H. Harless
This video was shot in 2008. It happens to be the first video produced for this series – before it was even thought to be a series. It is just over 6 minutes in length.
This Video Matinee Series will be published on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the duration of 2019.
The HPT Practitioner and HPT Legacy Video Series was started by Guy W. Wallace in 2008 as a means of sharing the diversity of HPT Practitioners, and the diversity of HPT Practices in the workplace and in academia.
HPT – Human Performance Technology – is the application of science – the “technology” part – for Performance Improvement. As the late Don Tosti noted, “All performance is a human endeavor.”
Whether your label for HPT is that, or Performance Improvement or Human Performance Improvement, it is all about Evidence Based Practices for Performance Improvement at the Individual level, the Team level, the Process level, the Department level, the Functional level, the Enterprise level and at the level of Society/World.
HPT Practitioners operate at all of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.
Although ISPI – the International Society for Performance Improvement is the home of many HPT Practitioners – the concepts, models, methods, tools and techniques are not limited to any one professional affinity group or professional label.
ISPI just happens to be where I learned about HPT – and has been my professional home since 1979.
