In addition to problems of learning or training, HPT also tackles issues surrounding external factors like organizational systems, incentives, tools, and work/performance environments. Learning or training would be an internal factor that HPT might attend to. Accordingly, potential interventions from an HPT standpoint would include improved training programs, but also things like improved use of office space, more attractive incentives, improved tools (e.g. computer software, media, etc.), or the modification of organizational culture.
I like this field because it recognizes that all problems are not instructional problems, but does not minimize the importance of learning and its relationship to performance. I feel like HPT allows professionals in our field to look at the big picture, which is exciting to me. I am also interested in working in a corporate setting and HPT seems to lend itself well to that type of work.
