Brandon’s Book

From Amazon

We’re in a new era of learning, one in which learners expect information to be available anywhere and anytime. How do you make sure your learning experiences keep up with the pace of workplace transformation?

In Learning in the Age of Immediacy: 5 Factors for How We Connect, Communicate, and Get Work Done, learning strategist Brandon Carson argues that five edge technologies (augmented reality and virtual reality, the cloud, mobile, big data, and the Internet of Everything) are transforming the modern workplace, requiring new learning methods to empower the modern worker.

Through real-world case studies and interviews with industry experts and business leaders, he shows how these technologies affect training’s design, delivery, and evaluation.

He also provides practical advice to integrate the five factors into your learning strategy, helping you answer important questions along the way: What will the workforce you support look like in the next several years? How will you provide in-the-moment learning for the streaming economy the cloud has introduced? Do you have a mobile learning strategy? (You should). And how will you use the emerging practice of data science to provide evidence of training’s value to the business?

The stakes are high, and these factors could be the difference between achieving measurable results or driving your learners to seek solutions elsewhere. Use Learning in the Age of Immediacy to create a learning plan that will serve your workforce now and in the future!

Guy’s HPT Video Series

The HPT Video Series … formerly known as 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. The full set of videos – over 100 – may be found and linked to – here.

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 might operate at any of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.

Although ISPI – the International Society for Performance Improvement is the professional 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.
