Phase 2: Modeling Competence

Expert Modeling provides a rapid and cost-effective performance boost to individual and organizational productivity. It combines systemic coaching, accelerated learning, value theory, typological analysis, behavioral psychology and management science to rapidly duplicate excellence. Expert Modeling is used to decompose skills, create models and transfer competence, as part of management and organizational development packages.

Expert Modeling: Phase 1

  1. Identify people with the desired competencies
  2. Elicit vital components of expert behavior
  3. Decompose expert behavior into a model
  4. Decompose the expert model into strategies

These activities provided a knowledge base of behavioral micro-skills (phase 1) that can be analyzed and sequenced into testable models of competence (phase 2). The expert's model can be rapidly taught (phase 3) to selected motivated learners using accelerated learning and systemic coaching.

Expert Modeling: Phase 2

A. Ensure expert performance

  1. Assess expert performance and results
  2. Observe the experts over time
  3. Assess the experts' performance over time

B. Synthesize components of expertise

  1. Construct a provisional model
  2. Divide the expert skills into a sequence
  3. Approximate relevant strategies
  4. Explain each modeled components
  5. Develop a hierarchy of critical components

C. Identify elements of the knowledge base

  1. Identify heuristics
  2. Identify underlying structural patterns
  3. Identify the model's constraints and skill partitions
  4. Add all components to the knowledge base

D. Identify the critical components, their hierarchy and interconnections

  1. Show how components interlock
  2. Optimize the system
  3. Define the feedback and feed-forward loops
  4. Interpret and integrate the critical components
  5. Devise methods to control the sequence
  6. Codify the interaction between components
  7. Discover redundancies and increase reliability
  8. Test and refine critical components

E. Test and refine the expert model with selected people

  1. When does student competence approach mastery?
  2. If the model is ineffective, elicit more information
  3. Integrate all information until the model "works"

F. Formulate a final expert model

  1.  Test and revise the model to meet performance criteria
  2.  If training candidates are screened, prepare for phase 3
  3.  If candidates are randomly selected, generalize the model
  4.  The result is an accelerated performance increase

Isomorphic, Generative & Integrative Modeling

  •  Isomorphic: Use model without further improvement
  •  Generative: Streamline model, enhance critical components
  •  Integrative: Combine elements from several expert models

End of Phase 2

Phase 1 of Expert Modeling decomposes expert performance into a knowledge base of behavioral micro-skills. Phase 2 sequences, optimizes and refines expert skill components, and sequences them into testable models of competence. When testing with selected subjects indicates competence, phase 3 transfers this expertise to learners, using accelerated learning and systemic coaching.
