In 1979 I was taught to take the Performance Analysis data – based on “a derivative of a derivative” of Geary Rummler’s approach to Performance Analysis and inform/create the terminal or Performance Objectives using Bob Mager’s 3-part behavioral objectives format.
I learned that from his 1975 version of Preparing Instructional Objectives (2nd edition). Part of what’s been known as the Mager 6 Pack.
A simplified version of Mager’s format is: “Able to do X, Given Y, as Measured by Z.”
Then, in order to be able TO DO (Performance) one would need TO KNOW (Knowledge & Skills) – and that 2nd level of Objectives is sometimes called Enabling, or Knowledge, or Learning.
Sometimes in a modular design, some Lessons are about learning the enablers, followed by additional enablers, and at some point, putting it all together in terminal Performance.
Learn the Process/ WorkStream/ WorkFlow. Then learn the Laws/Regulations/Codes. Then learn the branches of decision-making involved. Then learn the performance in chunks and then end-to-end.
A Modular Chain of Instruction.
My Analysis efforts always focused on Performance before the Enabling Knowledge & Skills.
Several of my recent books address this. One book that puts these together is my 2022 mini-book: Lesson Mapping for Performance Impact.
And my 2021 book: Performance-Based Lesson Mapping.
And I have 2 webinars on Lesson Mapping. This webinar from 2021:
performance based Lesson Mapping – ISPI SoCal Webinar
And this webinar from 2019.
