Since 1983 – Using Curriculum Architecture Design to Reduce the Time to Proficiency & Performance

This post quickly overviews some of the CAD work I had done at HP, Siemens Building Technologies and General Motors going back to 1983 through 2000. And it’s about ROI.


Time to Proficiency/Time to Performance – same diff – as we used to say back in the day (1960s).

Then HP submitted for an award…

I posted about this back in 2012 – here.

My client and my friend Darryl Sink had submitted the effort for an award from NSPI (now ISPI) – based on my CAD efforts.

Siemens Building Technologies…

Some of my first CAD – Curriculum Architecture Design efforts were for MCC Powers starting back in 1983 – who after several changes in ownership and name changes became Siemens Building Technologies – heard about our other clients using us and our CAD efforts to reduce the Time to Proficiency for key jobs – and started calling their/our efforts Time to Performance.

In 1989 our clients received their President’s Quality Award for their/our work.

Generals Motors…

Then in 1997 that my General Motors University client won the Chairman’s Quality Award for a combo CAD-MCD effort I facilitated for their Metal Fabrication unit’s new supervisors development program.

Here is a video – 11:36 minutes in length – about that with some of the key people involved with that effort in the midst of a PPTT – PACT Process Technology Transfer effort – where Guy and his team – first at SWI and then at CADDI – trained and certified hundreds of ISD practitioners in Guy’s PACT Processes – which were rebranded at GM as MC/MI.

My client used this video as an introduction to their internal clients about how they wanted to approach performance-based Training going forward.

I worked for GMU on this from 1995 until early 2000 when a new leader of GMU replaced all of the current vendors with the vendors he had been using in his prior gig.
