Celebrating Rummler – April 12-18

The Late Geary A. Rummler’s Birthday is April 16th

So I am asking others to join in with me that week – and post on Social Media, one or more of their personal “lessons learned,” “take-a-ways” or “remembrances” from any interactions, work, articles or books that they attribute back to Geary.

#CelebratingRummler

Celebrating Rummler 2020

This week of Celebrating Rummler is less than two weeks away! So please give some thought to what and how he influenced you – and prepare yourself to share that with the rest of us during that week.

And please use the hashtag:

So we might all find and reshare your thoughts with others!

HPT Video 2020: Harold Jarche

I’ve been following Harold Jarche (pronounced: jar-key) online since about 2007 I believe. We’ve had a few exchanges on Social Media and via email over the years – but I felt as if I didn’t know enough about him – and thought he’d bring some different perspectives to Performance Improvement.

Harold Jarche: Bio

Contact Harold

en français

Harold Jarche works with individuals, organizations, and public policy influencers to develop practical ways to improve collaboration, knowledge sharing, and sensemaking.

Slide1

Harold has been described as “a keen subversive of the last century’s management and education models”. Clients appreciate Harold for his extensive experience and network. His internationally renowned blog is “a beacon of light in the dark landscape of organizational learning”. According to one long-time reader, “Harold is one of the best thinkers out there on things relating to learning and work”. Harold helps his clients deal with an increasingly complex networked world.

A graduate of the Royal Military College, Harold served over 20 years with the Canadian Armed Forces in leadership and training roles. Harold began his career as an officer with Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. He completed his service as a Training Development Officer with the Royal Canadian Air Force where he conducted the analysis and design of training for aircrew and technicians on the newly purchased CH146 helicopter.

In 2003 Harold launched his independent consulting practice in Sackville, NB, Canada. He has served a wide variety of clients and has been a speaker at many venues worldwide. As work and learning become integrated in a networked society, Harold sees great opportunities to create new organizational models. We can do better than cubicle farms, cookie-cutter job descriptions, generic work competencies, and routine work. We need to make social networks and communities of practice essential components of all of our workplaces. Being able to understand emerging situations, see patterns, and co-solve problems are now essential business skills. As Harold says, work is learning & learning is the work.

Harold’s preferred workplace is on his bicycle, where he gets his best ideas.

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 100 – 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.

HPT Video 2020: Joe Sener

Joe and I worked together at SWI (Svenson & Wallace Inc.) back in the mid 1990s. He was a “Quality” guy, and a former Baldrige Examiner, and went on to become an executive focused on Quality at several organizations.

His perspective on HPT was of interest to me as it’s not from a T&D/L&D/Instruction perspective.

Joe Sener

Adapted from LinkedIn

Joe has over 40 years of new product development experience in industries as varied as nuclear power plant design, heavy steel fabrication of pressure vessels and airlocks, hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders, and complex electro-mechanical (class 2) medical devices.

Slide1

When it comes to product development and design controls, as a senior engineering quality executive, Joe led teams that have successfully designed new custom products, retired large volume products, remediated incomplete design files for dozens of product families, and modified product technical files in compliance with a number of different regulatory environments. He led the development of product risk management systems to comply with ISO 14971.

These regulatory environments include US Food and Drug Administration, European Union Medical Device Directive and now the new Medical Device Regulation along with US Nuclear Regulatory Commission and others around the world.

Joe has led major projects to remediate the Quality Management System for major corporations in order to avoid consent decrees and have successfully brought these $40+ million projects in on-time and under-budget. One particular project team consisted of 42 consultants and 240 team members from the company. The team accomplished this all while continuing to develop new products!

In these types of situations, it is important to know what must be done versus what is far less important. You need someone who has had responsible charge of the systems in need, not a consultant who is good at telling you what is wrong but has never had to live with the results. When it comes to sitting across the table from the FDA or other investigators, Joe has done that.

My Supervisor At Work and WFH 2020

That’s Bueller

He’s my only supervisor. And I can’t make much of a move that he won’t sense. You know – like taking a break – which obviously signals it’s time to play.

Working From Home

Not many are used to working from home or have a space set up conducive for it. I feel bad for them. I can’t imagine.

I’ve been doing it – having a separate office – since the fall of 1975 – after getting out of the Navy – and I set up a spare bedroom of the 3 rental houses in Lawrence Kansas – where I did my homework. Homework that I didn’t get done in between classes on campus at KU – the Kansas University.

Before and after graduating from KU I have had an office in every house I’ve owned or rented – that would be 10 houses (in 4 states) owned and 4 rented since 1977.

It’s obvious that I am one of the lucky ones – who has always seemed to have space – although sometimes in an unfinished basement – for a Home Office. Even when I’ve had an office away from home.

Since 2002 I’ve worked exclusively from The Home Office – when not at a client’s site.

A Quick 360 of My Current WFH Space

I did this almost 2 years ago – sharing a 360 of my office space on LinkedIn and asking others to do the same – before the pandemic – but only one other person did the same.

Here is my update:

Take Care and Stay Safe!
