Stop, Drop & Roll – The Moment of Apply

October 17, 2014 Leave a comment

At a Change Leadership workshop I held a couple years ago I demonstrated a concept around the concept of Stimulus/Response to make the point that there is more going on behind the curtain in one’s brain than you might first expect. In this post, I will attempt to align the obvious aspects of “flight or fight” as an overlay to the value of positioning performance support over training. Imagine me going there… Read more…

ECOSYSTEM: Is the Concept Jive, Jargon or Justified?

October 16, 2014 Leave a comment

One of the more recent buzzwords surfacing in our L&D lexicon is “Ecosystem”, and I see it as having more significance to a sustainable learning and performance strategy than acceptance. Several pundits like Rosenburg, Mosher and Gottfredson, among others are using “ecosystem” routinely in conversations and presentations. The question that jumps into my brain is “Why seek what you already have?” I say this primarily because every organization already has a Learning & Performance Ecosystem. The question that manifests from “Why seek…” is “It’s not really a question of having an ecosystem; the real question is – Are you managing the one you have effectively and efficiently?” Read more…

Intentional Design & the EPS Performance Stack

October 9, 2014 4 comments

Trolling through my networking groups on LinkedIn yesterday, a post caught my eye where an individual was lamenting how the disjointedness of running disparate systems compromised effective and efficient operations. The suggested solution was a desire for the creation of a unified enterprise platform to eliminate the disparity. I agree that unification is the answer…but not among disparate systems. Read more…

The Disruption Driving the Disruption of Adopting an EPS Discipline

September 9, 2014 2 comments

Choosing to use “disruption” twice in the same statement, especially regarding the discipline of embedded performance Support [EPS] is not just a tactic to form a snappy title. The reason is bigger than that. Does adopting EPS as a discipline really have to be disruptive? Any good consultant would answer a question like that with two simple words, “It depends!” Why? Because there is more than one disruption going on when choosing to pursue the EPS discipline. Read more…
