One of the challenges that traditional training and performance improvement projects have is that they are usually positioned as a problem solving approach. In fact, most are using a traditional gap analysis approach. That is determining the current and desired situation, finding the gap and then determing how to close that gap. It’s a very logical approach and it does work well, except for one thing…it’s telling employees and managers that there is something wrong or they have done something wrong and you’re going to fix it. That’s a tough sell. A lot of work on building support and consensus has to go into this approach to get anything done.

Process improvement is a little easier. In this approach, you look at where things are today and how to make them better. People understand that even the best of the best can get better. In addition, there is an obvious benefit for improvement.

With a problem solving approach, you need to have a solution that works first time. You often don’t get a second bite at the apple. Things need to be perfect before you make any changes. This leads to long development times and lots of reviews.

With a process improvement approach, you’re looking for incremental gains over a long period of time. It’s really a continuous process not a one time event. You have a greater opportunity to test things out and discard approaches that don’t work. You’re not letting perfect be the enemy of good.

So which do you think gets better acceptance…”You’re doing things wrong and I’m going to fix them.” or “I’m here to help you improve on the great work you’re already doing?
