HPT Video 2022 – William J. Ryan

This was my first conversation with Bill Ryan. We have been connected on Twitter for years and just recently on LinkedIn – an oversight I had just discovered and addressed as soon as I discovered that we weren’t connected there. Bill is a Performance-Kind-of-Guy, and I wanted to share and promote him – as that’s my current mission: Promote the People in the Cult of Performance to Others.

Adapted from LinkedIn

William partners with organizations to develop, engage, and drive retention while improving performance using learning strategically. I focus on increasing your competitive advantage by aligning the 3P’s: Purpose, People, & Process.

With 25+ years of connecting people across time and distance, he focuses on maximizing his client’s investment in technology and people by ensuring they work together efficiently and effectively while minimizing the distance and time barriers your dispersed workforce faces. He works in rapidly changing environments as a learning strategist for leading national companies focused on business outcomes and delivers solutions to help operational groups and senior staff lead virtual and globally remote teams.

William brings the skills and techniques leaders, teams, and organizations can use to define and develop their talent pipeline while improving the performance of their current workforce, supporting collaboration remotely, and helping people succeed in a world of constant change.

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 150 – 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.

This Series Has Evolved Since 2008

These videos were first posted on Google Video, then they were moved to Blink, and now they may all be found on YouTube. And my name for them has changed as well…

HPT Practitioner Video Podcasts and HPT Legacy Video Podcasts

– Practitioner Series – short 2-10 minutes, following a script. Intended to show the diversity of HPT and HPT Practitioners. (2008-2018)

– Legacy Series – longer 15-40+ minutes, also scripted, with added stories of other NSPI/ ISPI’ers from the earlier days of the Society or others who were of great influence. Intended to capture the stories of the people who influenced us. (2008-2018)

– HPT Video Series (2019+) – is a continuation of the first two types of videos in this series, but with less focus on capturing NSPI/ISPI members – and expanding out to any and all who use Evidence-Based Practices in Performance Improvement regardless of any affiliation with ISPI or not.
