Just like successful diets, building a high performing workforce requires more than chasing after the latest quick-fix fad or hiring the best consulting gurus to get your organization on track. Companies often look for a silver bullet, a single program that solves all their problems. Author Joe Willmore presents a convincing case why chasing a magic bullet is a road without end. In place of that, Willmore offers a simple, seven-step plan that will successfully build a high performing workforce, which then results in organization-wide improvement that sustains bottom-line value. Along with the plan, the author provides examples that illustrate key points and concepts, as well as practical advice that spurs action.

Proposing any performance or training solutions requires rigorous analysis based on data, not speculation. Conducting a front-end analysis—a process for determining why a perceived performance gap exists and how to close the gap—enables workplace learning and performance professionals to find successful solutions. This Infoline describes how to carry out the two distinct analysis processes that go into a front-end analysis: a gap (or performance) analysis and root cause analysis. The first process determines if a performance problem exists. The second process identifies the true root cause of the issue. Helpful sidebars explain the analysis sequence, when to conduct a gap analysis, how to define performance gaps without bias, and factors that influence performance. In addition, the job aid provides a checklist of questions for a training needs analysis.
