As I listened to this Ted talk by Sal Khan I was wondering if the same logic could be used in the workplace? Even though we are not testing our employees, but we are measuring performance. We do train employees as well, but not at their pace, but based on the organization’s need. I am not a fan of the once a year employee evaluation for employees. I am in favor of good sound realistic performance measures. So with this same logic -could be crafted for the work place? Per the website, “this talk comes from the PBS special “TED Talks: Education Revolution” which premieres Tuesday, September 13.”
What do you think? I would love to see some comments on this.
