What is ISPI?

Founded in 1962, the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) is the leading international association dedicated to improving productivity and performance in the workplace. ISPI represents more than 10,000 international and chapter members throughout the United States, Canada, and 40 other countries. ISPI's mission is to develop and recognize the proficiency of our members and advocate the use of Human Performance Technology. Assembling an Annual Conference & Expo and other educational events like the Institute, publishing books and periodicals, and supporting research are some of the ways ISPI works toward achieving this mission.

Applying Human Performance Improvement in Today’s World

Bob Winter of Enterprise Agility

In this session, Bob Winter of Enterprise Agility will briefly review the seminal books of human performance improvement. Given that most of the best work in this field was done decades ago, this overview will give rise to more questions than answers. As such, join the discussion to kick around ideas about: How does performance improvement apply to today’s world? How can you apply these analytical skills to improving the performance of knowledge workers? How can the principles and techniques of performance consulting support leaders in an agile environment? This discussion will be appropriate not just for people who consider themselves consultants, but anyone interested in creating an environment where the full creativity and value creation of our people can flourish.

What does an innovative mindset mean to you? And how is it developed?

Dr. Carol Ann Sharicz

There are 13,600,000 references to this one phrase, “innovative mindset” on google. Practically every organization is seeking this holy grail. One author has stated that “conversation is crucial to the process of innovation,” so we will be engaging in conversation to explore how we can continue to develop our own innovative mindset!

This conversation will be in the form of a World Café. A World Café is a methodology for group dialogue that creates a living network of conversations and questions which enable the creation of knowledge and sharing of possibilities for action.

Visual Literacy and Information Design: The Eye, The Mind, The Image

Domenic Screnci, Ed.D; Digital Learning and Innovation, Boston University

This presentation will explore principles of visual literacy and information design, from an instructional design perspective. The discussion will include the role of perception in visual communication and learning. We will examine the areas of study associated with the fields of “Visual Literacy”, “Visual Thinking”, and “Visual Learning” and how the principles and concepts can be applied in the design, production and implementation of communication, presentation and instructional materials.

The presenter’s goal is to provide the audience with a visual experience that explores concepts in the field of visual literacy to enhance their visual competencies to analyze and understand underlying visual dynamics in a visual field.
