Benefits of Performance Support

Today’s competitive business environment requires ongoing change and process improvement.


As a result, many leading organizations are continually:

  • Re-engineering business processes
  • Implementing new or updated IT systems
  • Training employees to successfully implement new processes, systems, policies and procedures
  • Staffing help desks to support end-users
  • Building knowledge databases and information portals to support employee self-service


In order to fully realize the intended benefits of these continual changes, organizations need to enable their employees to successfully adopt and apply these new processes, skills, tasks, systems, and policies.
