Current approaches for rapidly prototyping instruction and software such as AGILE avoid linear approaches in favor of parallel recursive ones. Parallel and recursive approaches can produce better work faster and with greater amounts of organizational and customer buy-in, especially in high risk environments. Further, a linear approach to performance improvement really does not represent what savvy practitioners really do on the job. They do not blindly follow a human performance model as one would complete a recipe, insisting that they finish each phase in order. Instead, they work with the end in mind to produce valued outcomes.
The Spiral Human Performance Improvement (HPI) framework attempts capture what is happening in savvy practitioners’ heads, and what is happening over time as they move through the performance improvement process in the often messy and chaotic real world. Visualization of a more accurate representation will, we hope, make the orchestration of that process more successful.
