Performance Support Is Not a Panacea
If you conduct Analysis and Design with Master Performers – in a Facilitated Group Process as I have since before becoming a consultant in 1982 – they’ll steer you to appropriate means – to deploy Formal Means – to the ends of Performance Competence.
Performance Competence – is the ability to Perform Tasks to Produce Outputs to Stakeholder Requirements.
I’m All For Performance Support
When it makes sense for the Performance and Performance Context.
Otherwise – forgetaboutit.
The Master Performers on your Analysis and Design Teams will disabuse you of such foolishness. And that’s a good thing.
They have empathy for the learners/Performers at the nuanced level.
