The primary output of any training initiative is better performance. Too many times, when people are not performing adequately, they are subjected to training without any investigation of the root causes of their inadequate performance.This presentation, based on my book “Capability at Work: How to solve the performance puzzle”, will give attendees a simple performance diagnostics model and tool to use.Attendees will learn when and how to use the tool to ensure that any training that is done is relevant and far more likely to have a positive impact on the attendees’ behavior and performance.We will look at the differences between performance consultancy and learning consultancy, and why you need both before launching into any instructional design process.
