Who is HPO?
What Role Does a Human Performance Outfitter Play?
Integrating a Learning & Performance paradigm to the point of full adoption represents a Change journey not unlike that of scaling a mountain to reach the summit. Engaging an outfitter before attempting the climb is a routine part of thorough preparation. The right gear, climbing techniques, tips, coaching, advice, and a map to the summit from a guide who has been there makes for good practice...even before establishing a base camp.
HPO has been to this lofty summit multiple times over the last 12 years and can confirm each ascent was different. That said, a pre-climb readiness assessment to discern your climb team's capabilities and mapping a migration path to the summit [sustained L&P adoption] have proven to be reliable, repeatable best practice.
