What Is HPT?
Human Performance Technology (HPT), a systematic approach to improving productivity and competence, uses a set of methods and procedures — and a strategy for solving problems — for realizing opportunities related to the performance of people. More specific, it is a process of selection, analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation of programs to most cost-effectively influence human behavior and accomplishment. It is a systematic combination of three fundamental processes: performance analysis, cause analysis, and intervention selection, and can be applied to individuals, small groups, and large organizations.The paragraph above was copied and pasted directly from the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) website.

This blog serves two purposes:
1. Hopefully it will promote some discussion among the human resource and quality professionals I know regarding the theory and practice of Human Performance Technology (HPT)
2. It will serve as supplemental information to my LinkedIn profile, providing more depth for anyone who may be interested.
