|There is significant confusion and
controversy today among theorists and practitioners who focus
on improving the overall output or productivity of a company.
Consider the following terms: training, HRD, HPT, OE, and
management. Training is a specific type of intervention designed
to increase specific knowledge, skills, or attitudes of workers.
Training is one of many HRD (human resource development) interventions;
examples of other HRD interventions include team building,
work and/or job re-design, and goal setting. HRD is a related,
but distinct, perspective on improving workplace performance
from HPT (human performance technology). HRD is more likely
to put the individual worker at the center of the action while
HPT is more likely to put workplace systems at the center.
An OE (organizational effectiveness) perspective tends to
look at workplace output or productivity as a function of
the organization’s structure and subsequent interrelationships
between and among groups and processes. This perspective puts
the structure of the organization at the center of the situation.
And finally, management is ultimately responsible for achieving
organizational results. All too often, however, management
gets caught in the middle of the confusion about terms and
While the confusion and controversy stems from the underlying
origins of the perspective, many consultants get bogged down
in semantics and “turf wars” and are unable to
view the same phenomenon from various points of view. It is
important to remember that the ultimate outcome of all these
perspectives is the same: to improve the output or productivity
of the company in question.
ID.E.A.S That Work, LLC has the ability to navigate these
various perspectives and to work with management and other
professionals as they all pursue the same goal: to improve
the output of the company.
Along with over twenty years of practical experience, Kathy
has impressive credentials in her field.
