Cracker Barrel Presentations are a fun and highly energetic ISPI tradition that features roundtable presentations given by our local practitioners. The presenters will deliver a 15-minute presentation at their table on a topic of their choice. After the presentation, the presenters will remain at their table and the attendees will select a new presentation at a new table. This format is repeated for three rounds of presentations.
About Our Speakers/Presenters:
Completing ISPI’s CPT Certification
During this session, I’ll describe my recent experience with completing ISPI’s CPT (Certified Performance Technologist) certification, discuss tips for completing the application and navigating the certification process, and answer questions from prospective applicants.
Myths & Misconceptions of Millennials
Understanding your audience is important, understanding your employees is even more important. In this session we will focus on results to discuss the taboo topic of age and the culture of the millennial. This will add value to the company's culture from the top down and utilize partnerships between the age gaps and (hopefully) show that there is very little gap at all.
The overall purpose of this discussion is to utilize the literature to debunk the myth that millennials are a culture of lazy teenagers that want to be paid for nothing. They are dedicated, loyal workers just as the generation before them. We need to bridge the gap and open the discussion for good literature from our peers in the field.
Impact Assessment: ISPI University Case Study Competition
A former student participant will share her experience with the ISPI University Case Study Competition and the impact it had on her career and life.
Sneaking a Performance Consult into the Analysis Phase of a Learning Project
As performance improvement professionals, it is our duty to ensure that training is the appropriate intervention to solve a performance need, but it may not always be feasible, practical, or politically correct to challenge a business assumption. In this cracker barrel session, you will learn how the presenter conducted a performance consult in a learning project’s analysis phase to help the project achieve its system-driven improvement goals.
What is the Right Team Size?
Consider the best teams you have ever worked on, what made them work so well?
Consider the teams that you've worked on that did not work well together, what was different? We will explore the different roles of team members and what we can consider to promote success with our teams
Cultivating Creative Performance
We are all creative--whether we believe it or not! Creativity is a talent that must be cultivated. This session explores strategies for discovering the creativity that lies within you and those you work with. You will learn techniques for solving problem and increasing the flow of ideas, as well as how to draw out creativity in others and encourage creativity in the workplace.
Value of Rubrics for Evaluations
Join this discussion addressing the value of rubrics in evaluation. Rubrics allow us to be more objective in evaluating the worthiness or value of the item under scrutiny. They also create alignment between multiple evaluators doing analysis.
What is HPT? HPT is a Mindset
HPT stands for Human Performance Technology. ISPI says it is “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.” Sounds good, but what does that really mean? And why is it important for me? For me, HPT is a mindset. It is all about making it easy to achieve desired results. It’s really how we should all approach everything we do every day, isn’t it?
