Join us for dinner and a meeting with Bonnie Beresford & Paul Flynn:

"Performance By Design"

"Where do we begin with training? Where will I get the most bang for my buck?"

These questions are frequently asked of performance consultants as clients and stakeholders try to decide how to best spend precious training resources. Everyone has an opinion on what will bring results, but few have a scientific method to target identified, quantified performance gaps. 

"What will we learn?"

During this important session, Bonnie and Paul will share an award-winning methodology that will help you zero in on and address performance gaps. Specifically, they will share how to:

  • Apply a "performance mapping" strategy to describe what high performers do
  • Interpret a Gap Assessment to identify and prioritize performance gaps
  • Conduct an activity that identifies the numerous factors affecting performance
