Ledge Walking Technology: The quick and painless system of knowing when to push leaders off the performance ledge…and when to simply talk them off the Mt. Training

Ledge Walking Technology (LWT) is a creative and measurable conceptual blend of performance technology tools with the strategic needs of the organization. The innovative nature of this conceptual blend breathes new life into the tried and true standard tools of performance technology, and leverages blended measurement tools and colorful story telling techniques. The practical application of LWT rapidly enables the performance technologist to identify, select, communicate, implement and measure both instructional and non-instructional solutions. Each of these systematic stages of the performance technology process presents the technologist with challenges we like to call ledges. It is these ledges that we must rapidly decide to either pull our organizational leaders from or simply push them off.
