Integrating Learning and Performance.
These four papers are from a symposium on integrating learning and performance. "Identifying the Skill Requirements and Performance Needs of Small Manufacturers" (Julie A. Furst-Bowe) reports a survey to identify needs of small manufacturers in northwestern Wisconsin and to determine whether a university-based performance improvement center would assist them in meeting those needs. "The Relationship of Learning and Performance Improvement at Different System Levels" (Richard J. Torraco) examines learning and performance improvement as separate constructs and as complementary elements in organization systems. It uses a four-level systems model (individual, function, process, mission) to examine changes in the relationship between learning and performance improvement at different levels of the model. "Historical Antecedents Shaping the Terms of Performance and Learning and Their Relationship in Human Resource Development (HRD): An Exploratory Study" (John A. Henschke) explores whether HRD's key ingredient is performance or learning. It investigates how the meanings evolved historically and are interrelated. The study finds that the two distinct terms together and their relationship within the HRD context are key to HRD. "Developing Managerial Competence: Does It Improve Performance?" (Jonathan Winterton, Ruth Winterton) reports a United Kingdom study that found management development improved performance at individual and business levels and that development was more effective when linked to organizational strategy and based on the Management Charter Initiative occupational standards for managers.
