Don’t Confuse READY…With READINESS…

October 12, 2017 Leave a comment

If I had to boil down all my bluster and passion in this blog to a single core statement, it would be this:

Training, by itself, does not drive performance – it drives potential;
…if you truly seek to sustain measurable workforce performance you must go to the Point-of-Work and plan to address diverse Moments of Need with accessible, effective and business relevant solution assets
shaped by Intentional Design.

Free Agent – Hurled Through the Window of Opportunity

March 6, 2016 7 comments

Boss: “I have some unfortunate news.”

Me: (thinking to myself) ‘Here we go…again…’

Boss: “Your position has been eliminated effective a week from Friday.”

Me: “Hmmm, something tells me this is not a joke.”

Boss: “I’m sorry. This is no joke.”

Bah-dump-tssshhh!
(Not sure that’s the correct spelling for a rim shot, but that’s the audio clip that played in my head.) Read more…

Readiness – Set – Go: Pursuing a Sustainable EPS Strategy

March 4, 2016 2 comments

The path to shifting a long-held training paradigm to a holistic learning and performance paradigm is not a task for the faint-of-heart. Trust me on this…I have the scars to prove it. The greatest challenge I encountered in my own journey reveals there is more Change Leadership related implications than anything else.

So…do we avoid the “climb”, or is there a path that can embrace the diversity of the Change implications that will manifest? Read more…

This post this likely to twist a knot in a few knickers, but hey…what’s a few knots now and then, so buckle up…this might nudge you beyond the limits of a training paradigm. Traditionally, a MOOC, in academic circles, is known as a Massive Open Online Course…and I have no problem with that. Where I get torqued down tight is when corporate Training tries to emulate an academic MOOC with corporate learning content. When that happens, corporate L&D potentially misses the boat. Read more…

Experience API [xAPI] & Why You Should Give a Rip

November 6, 2014 17 comments

They say that even a blind squirrel will find a nut eventually, and I am living proof of that concept. So there I was at DevLearn 2014 locked in to speak at a couple of breakout sessions and facilitate a tabletop discussion at the crack of dawn on day one. I’m there on a Performance Support mission of “seek and learn” and purely by accident I stumbled over a pre-conference session Tuesday afternoon called the xAPI Hyperdrive. Yup…maybe not totally aligned with the squirrel metaphor, but I found a nut I was not even looking for…and it changed my entire conference agenda. Read more…
