Let’s Check-in! 
The board members will use this time to check in with our chapter members, our frequent visitors, curious new guests, & employers around the areas we serve. We want to know how everyone is fairing through this pandemic and the various impacts it is having on your everyday lives.

We will use this time to discuss:

  • How everyone has adapted to the changes so far both professionally and personally.

  • Current individual performance needs that each member has in the workplace.

  • Current needs that businesses have that we can support.

WHAT IS HPI?

HPI is Human Performance Improvement.

 

Some people recognize the acronym HPT which is Human Performance Technology.

 

HPT and HPI:

 

  • are systematic approaches to improving productivity and competence

  • use 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.

How Does HPI / HPT Work?

HPI / HPT uses a wide range of interventions that are drawn from many other disciplines including:

  • behavioral psychology

  • instructional systems design

  • organizational development, and

  • human resources management.

It stresses:

  • a rigorous analysis of present and desired levels of performance

  • identifies the causes for the performance gap

  • offers a wide range of interventions to improve performance

  • guides the change management process, and

  • evaluates the results.

Important Definitions


        Human: the individuals and groups that make up organizations
        Performance: activities and measurable outcomes​

        Technology: a systematic and systemic approach to solve practical problems
 

 

10 Standards of HPI / HPT


Human Performance Improvement & Human Performance Technology have been described as the systematic and systemic identification and removal of barriers to individual and organizational performance.

 

HPI / HPT is governed by a set of underlying principles that serve to differentiate it from other disciplines and to guide practitioners in its use.

​1. HPI / HPT focuses on outcomes.

2. HPT takes a systems view.

​3. HPT adds value. 

​4. HPT establishes partnerships.

​5. Be systematic in the assessment of the need or opportunity. 

​6. Be systematic in the analysis of the work and workplace to identify the cause or factors that limit performance. 

​7. Be systematic in the design of the solution or specification of the requirements of the solution. 

​8. Be systematic in the development of all or some of the solution and its elements. 

​9. Be systematic in the implementation of the solution.

​10. Be systematic in the evaluation of the process and the results.

Our meetings are open to all.

Why should you join us?

Picture this... You visit one of your friend's workgroups and notice that the people are sharp--very sharp.  And they seem to be psyched to be doing the work. You spend a few weeks with them and soon learn that they are the right people doing the right things. The work environment seems to have been tailor-made for them: you are amazed at the simplicity of their processes and tools.

You are not surprised when you learn that this unit has been evaluated as the best at what they do.

You ask your friend about it, and she says, "Oh, right.   We adopted a systems approach to human performance a few years ago.  It has made a world of difference.  It is called Human Performance Technology. "

We are about amazing human performance!

Join us as together we explore how we can improve the way our businesses and organizations operate. Each month we meet and discuss  breakthrough approaches to human performance.

We meet at various locations around Hampton Roads. Check out our events schedule for a time and place convenient to you.
