My Focus on Performance Outputs & Tasks is Thanks to Rummler, Gilbert, Mager, and Harless

And their work in the 1960s and 1970s

This all began for me in August 1979 when I was graduated from college – and joined a 10-person Training function at Wickes Lumber. There I was exposed to the work of Rummler, Gilbert, Mager, and Harless.

On Day 1 – I was given these three resources.

This is something from a binder that I was given later during my first week in the profession.

22 months later I left Wickes Lumber and joined Motorola’s Training & Education Center. A week before my first day on the job I was invited to attend a 1-day Workshop with Geary Rummler. This video is an excerpt from that day.

My first day on the job at Motorola, I attend a 1-day Workshop with Neal Rackham. This next video is an excerpt from that day.

A few weeks later my future business partner, Ray Svenson, was brought in to do a 1-day Workshop – which I do not know if it was recorded as I never saw or heard about any video excerpts.

So my list of key Mentors – started growing – by Rackham and Svenson – and then continued growing after that.

I have a 2020 blog post identifying the additional mentors in my first 3 years in the field – here.
