How to Shift from Instruction to Performance Improvement with Guy Wallace- IDIODC Ep #179

The shift happens at the “Pivot Point” in an Instructional Development effort – when the client and key stakeholders can assess what the Analysis data tell them – and they can make the Business Decision as to continue with Instructional Development, or to pivot to a Performance Improvement effort, or to do both.

In my use of the term Instruction – I mean Job Aids & Training; or Performance Support & Learning Experiences; or Resources & Courses.

Instruction is a more “inclusive” term for what I am trying to produce. And as always, it should be “performance-based.”

This video is 43:56 minutes in length.

I may have gotten a little grumpy about some who CONFLATE performance-based Instruction w/ Performance Improvement Consulting or Performance Consulting. When people do that they simply water-down PIC to better Training/Learning Experiences.

Performance has many more variables than Knowledge & Skills and most Problems aren’t rooted in them. This is my framework for the variables.

Expecting v Suspecting

I also talked about Performance Improvement Consulting in this webinar with folks from the University of Surabaya (Indonesia) last November.

Another Book

A book coming sooner or later – as my friend Clark Quinn is my editor (poor fellow).

Here is the draft cover – which is likely to change – as the book is being published by LDA – the Learning & Development Accelerator.

Articles from 1984

Performance-Based Curriculum Architecture Design via a Facilitated Group Process – 6 page PDF– published in Training Magazine in September 1984. –This was the first publication about Curriculum Architecture Design. Plus – the original manuscript (30 pages) – How to Build a Training Structure That Won’t Keep Burning Down.

Models and Matrices – 5 page PDF, published in NSPI’s (ISPI’s) Performance & Instruction Journal, November 1984 – This was the first publication of the Performance and Enabler Analysis methods for ISD using a Facilitated Group Process that I have been using since 1979 and as an ISD consultant starting in 1982.

Thanks, IDIODC!
