Workplace Learning-and-Performance -- Four Responsibilities Initiative!

I just learned of a new initiative to push professionalization in the workplace learning-and-performance field. Because I'm a strong believer that we regularly fail in this, I'm signing on!

Here's what I wrote in my commitment statement:

Brilliant! And needed! The workplace learning-and-performance field is severely under-professionalized. When an organization asks an architect to design a building, the architect works from time-tested principles, from a code of ethics, from an architecture-first integrity. Certainly architects try to help their clients meet their goals, but they don't capitulate on the important stuff. I believe in the four principles!

Still, I think maybe we need to be even more directive. For example, we need to have a responsibility focused on working toward successive improvement, to doing effective measurement, etc. Maybe the four responsibilities can provide the umbrella hierarchy for more specific responsibilities... I'm a professional quibbler. Sorry about that! I wholeheartedly support your effort!
