The Progression of e • Perform transactions • Get data • Manipulate data • Access facts and structured information • Learn simple things • Use utilities for generic tasks (writing, analyzing data, communicating
The new wave ofe… • Thinking • Collaboration • Complex Learning • Doing complex work Directly supporting the way people do these things rather than making people change to reflect the way we’ve done them on the computer in the past.
e Filtration Filtering resources to get just-in- time, just enough resources to people in a given context • Data • Content • Tools • Other People Filters: • The person • Profile • Preferences • Role • Authorizations, certifications, security • Goals • The process, activity or task • Data and conditions • Geography • Whatever
Performance is in the Weave • The problem or task is defined • All relevant variables are: • Surfaced • Integrated • Properly sequenced • The metaphorical area when things come together • When people get it and are self-sufficient • Where response is exactly right
Performance Development Problem • Performers must • Develop an explicit task model • Map task models to • Content • Data • Tools • Software • People
Problem • Each organizational unit develops artifacts based on its history • Training • Documentation • Software applications • Websites • Tools
Current State: A Mess People
Performance Development Defaults • Training • We teach out of context because we can’t get people what they need when they need it • We focus on details instead of creating conceptual models, schema and frameworks • Information • Manuals, documents and now portals • People Support • Coaching, Help Desks

What’s Needed • Establish functional responsibility for performance development • Reengineer the performance development process • Develop an integrated strategy • Acknowledgement of the computer-mediated work environment • Design Models • Accountability for results
