A Column Post about Geary Rummler, The Performance Architect’s Architect


Roger Addison and Carol Haig have a long relationship with BPTrends and shared their knowledge and expertise through their column. This post is no exception but is exceptional, especially if you are unfamiliar with the work of Geary Rummler.

Their post is entitled, Performance Architecture: Where Geary Rummler’s Work and Business Process Intersect.

Here’s how they organized their post:

  1. Who was Geary Rummler?
  2. The performance architect’s architect
  3. Geary on needs analysis
  4. The Human Performance System (HPS) Model
  5. The Anatomy of Performance
  6. Geary and Six Sigma
  7. Time stamps for Geary’s work
  8. Your turn to reflect
  9. Summary
  10. Resources

With #8, Addison and Haig invite you to reflect upon Rummler’s ideas and models. After thinking about their questions, why not share? At the bottom of the post, BPTrends enable you to speak your mind. Why not use this as an opportunity for others to learn from your insights about Rummler’s multiple contributions to our field. I just posted my comment. Check it out and add to it!

From: May 2, 2020

Because of the Corona/Covid-19 pandemic, we’re all going through a period that none of us has ever experienced. With respect to teaching and learning, kids can’t attend school and we must help them learn at home. And this might last weeks or months. Fortunately, online education offers a solution, but the instructional techniques involved are not (completely) the same as what we do in the classroom during face-to-face education. This presentation will present 10 useful tips to help you and your students.

A Reminisce of Bob Mager – By Margo Murray

I attended the ISPI Business Meeting this past Saturday – it was a virtual meeting of course – and I was struck by what Margo Murray said about Bob Mager and writing – in a Tribute that kicked off the meeting – and so I asked Margo if I could share that – and she said, “Sure.”


She said he said,

Get it down – then work at getting it good.”

Words to live by, no?

Stay smart! Stay safe!
