  1. Population analysis is important to any HPI Solution to identify employee issues that may hinder or support proposed solutions.
    By analyzing the demographics of stakeholders via a population analysis, practitioners can determine who will participate in the intervention and identify any education or experience factors, physical needs, and cultural influences that need consideration.
  2. After a WLP professional identifies a performance gap, he/she must then select and implement a solution to bridge the gap. When in this process should a resource analysis be done?
    When considering appropriate interventions to bridge the performance gap, a resource analysis should be done. Review HR and SMEs needed for proposed interventions, determining if skills needed are in-house or if an external resource (vendor) is needed. Identify physical resources, systems and equipment.
  3. A WLP professional has conducted a root cause analysis and is ready for the next step in the HPI process, which should be:
