Performance Improvement Assuming Complexity
Rowland, Gordon
Performance Improvement Quarterly, v20 n2 p117-136 Jun 2007
Individual performers, work teams, and organizations may be considered complex adaptive systems, while most current human performance technologies appear to assume simple determinism. This article explores the apparent mismatch and speculates on future efforts to enhance performance if complexity rather than simplicity is assumed. Included are implications for key concepts such as learning and performance, for theory, practice, competencies, and overall approach, and for the identity of the field.
