The HPT Razor.
Esque, Timm J.
Performance Improvement, v42 n2 p23,26-28 Feb 2003
Discusses William of Occam's "razor" principle of scientific philosophy that given more than one theory, explanation, or definition of something, the simplest one is probably the best and helps us to "shave off" concepts, variables or constructs that are not needed to explain the phenomenon. Applies this principle to human performance technology (HPT). Includes notes on performance measurement terminology. (JMK)
