How to Recognize and Create Damn Good Job-Aids at ATD East Bay, Tuesday, 17 Oct 2017

“Inside every fat course is a thin job-aid crying to get out.”  ―Joe Harless, Workforce Performance Improvement Thought Leader

“The volume and complexity of what we know has exceeded our individual ability to deliver its benefits correctly, safely and reliably.” ―Atul Gawande, Surgeon, author of Being Mortal and The Checklist Manifesto

Learning and performance professionals have an overwhelmingly large bag of tricks these days. And as a result, in many cases, we’ve become Jacks and Jills of many trades and masters of none (or at least few). Join Peregrine Performance Group  and ATD SF East Bay  for Peregrine’s workshop, “How to Recognize and Create Damn Good Job-Aids,” and learn how to master one of the most important tools in the instructional designer’s toolkit.

From cowboys to pit crews and surgeons to software engineers, everyone trying to master a new skill or perform a complex series of skills benefits from damn good job-aids.

For the experienced professional, you will receive reinforcement and reminders of what it takes to build a great job-aid; newcomers will walk away with time-tested ideas for simplifying the overwhelming task of producing great performance support tools.

After 20 years of helping business leaders and training departments find new and better ways to create programs that help their workforces and customers perform better (i.e., faster, safer, more effectively), learning-industry veterans, Russ Powell and Joe Halpin, have come to realize that Mr. Harless had coined something true and brilliant in that phrase: one of the most valuable (and yet under-rated) tools we can provide for our customers and work-teams is the damn good job-aid.

Mark your calendar today and come join us Tuesday evening, October 17th, 6 PM to 8 PM. Visit ATD SF East Bay for more information.
