In 1987, my firm, Svenson & Wallace Inc., was hired to develop a Qualification & Certification System for a client operating one-half of the oil field operations at Prudhoe Bay, on Alaska’s North Slope in the Arctic Circle.
The intent was to create a Pay Progression Program, where pay raises were tied to performance capability. The 2 unsuccessful efforts before our project had produced paper & pencil tests, something Oil Field Roughnecks did – not – like – at – all. We developed over 2200 Performance Tests for 20 target audiences of mostly technical staff, working with the Master Performers chosen by the target audience groups themselves.
A series of 15 short videos that will review the entire System that we designed and developed and tested starts today.
Performance Testing – It’s ALL – about Performance. And demonstrated competence.
