PERFORMANCE TEMPLATES: AN ENTREPRENEUR’S PATHWAY TO EMPLOYEE TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
This article explains and demonstrates the learning and development model, performance templates. Aimed at performance improvement, the model guides an entrepreneur in instructing employees to create improvements in critical performance areas. In using the model, the entrepreneur has to focus her/his attention on what matters most in the functioning of and growing the enterprise. We demonstrate what performance templates are and how an entrepreneur or manager and a group of employees work together to create and apply the templates in daily operations. The model is grounded with experiential learning theory and action theory. We present empirical support from other studies for performance template application as the entrepreneur (or manager) works and learns in tandem with employees.
