Competency-Based Performance Improvement
Systems thinking is now more than 30 years old. Unfortunately, it appears that many members of our current generation of HRD practitioners are not familiar with systems theory and how it can be applied to the HRD field. In this book, system theory is discussed and then applied to performance improvement.

A Strategy for Organisational Change
This book will prove to be an outstanding contribution to the literature in the field of Human Resource Development (HRD).
Competency-Based Performance Improvement is not only based on theory and research, but on actual practice and application. Dr. Dubois also shares with us his research into various models for developing competency-based learning on the job–recent and future. Models are always important and helpful, and we can never have too many of them. It becomes the responsibility of the HRD practitioner to differentiate between those that are useful and those that are not. We are sure that you will find the models presented in this book very useful.
