DRIVER – Point-of-Work Solution Discipline

The DRIVER Point-of-Work Solution Discipline is based upon an expanded hybrid of discovery, agile design methods/tactics and delivery technologies that extend reach to Point-of-Work and moments of need to address task-centric, role-specific demands that manifest real-time within workflows.

DRIVER, as a discipline, does not promote “one-and-done training projects”; instead, DRIVER is aligned with a Learning Performance Continuum that tracks with the workforce on their journey to competency from Point-of-Entry (onboarding & new learning) to the ultimate destination Point-of-Work (sustained, competent performance).

DRIVER targets Point-of-Work as ground zero and utilizes current state bench marking from PWA Discovery to construct a Point-of-Work Solution Road Map. The Road Map provides high-level design prioritized based upon Critical Business Issues identified during PWA alignment and execution.

Intentional Design does not promote any single proprietary methodology; rather, it enables the organization’s design resources to leverage any agile-based methodology of choice. 70:20:10 or APPLY Synergies’ “Five Moments of Need” represent two leading agile methodologies, both compatible with an agile, iterative approach that can support asset Validation during development.

Evidence phase enables capturing Level 3 (measurable performance impact) and Level 4 (financial business impact) analytics that manifest only at Point-of-Work. Evidence analytics are identified and validated during the alignment and execution of the PWA.

Replicate phase is a critical discipline component that supports cross-pollination of performance assets within learning opportunities as well as Point-of-Work application. Additionally, Replicate serves as a framework for rapid reuse, content management and sustainability of all learning performance solution assets.

    • Enable Scalability

Adoption of the DRIVER Point-of-Work Solution Discipline carries with it the potential for CHANGE at multiple levels within the organization. The degree of CHANGE is a function of organizational and cultural readiness ranging from tactical in-house skill sets, available technology capable of supporting performance guidance, to strategic leadership buy-in to the implications of a paradigm shift to Point-of-Work from the familiarity and comfort of an embedded Training paradigm.

DRIVER adoption requires a leadership-level strategic re-think – a commitment to fill/update tactical skill gaps within supporting Training resources – and potential integration of technology as the Discipline matures to enable solution delivery for the workforce at Point-of-Work and moment of need.

Is your organization “ready” to shift to new discipline and paradigm, or is your organization at a state of “readiness”to make the shift? Making the decision to pursue a paradigm shift of this nature should begin with being “ready” to assess your “readiness” and build a migration strategy to survive the journey to an optimized and sustainable Learning Performance Ecosystem.

A logical first step – Point-of-Work Assessment (PWA) to determine readiness, expose gaps, and map a path forward.
