Cognitive Systems Engineering (One Day): I introduce the fundamental concepts of cognitive systems engineering and provide an in-depth treatment of selected and relatively straight-forward methods of cognitive systems engineering. I cover naturalistic decision making, macro-cognition, the critical decision method and decision-centered design. As source material for the exercises, I draw on narratives of counter-insurgency operations by US Marines as described in Donavan Campbell’s book, Joker One. [Course Description][Course Outline]
Human Systems Integration (Five Day): Hosted by Project Performance International. I extend the one-day course to cover Cognitive Work Analysis, Cognitive Systems Design, Cognitively-Inspired Performance Measurement, & Human Systems Effectiveness & Safety. [Course Description] [Course Outline] [Visit PPI site for Schedule]
Work Domain Analysis (One Day): Work Domain Analysis is the most challenging stage of Cognitive Work Analysis. I explain & clarify the fundamentals and use exercises to help delegates embed the basic strategies for doing the analysis. [Course Description] [Course Outline]
Knowledge Presentations (Two Day): It's not about PowerPoint. It's about knowing what to say, how to connect to your audience, & being comfortable as you present. There are a few excellent courses & books that can help business professionals and I cover the relevant ideas, but the content of a Knowledge Profession is more complex. How should you deal with that? And if you are a non-native speaker of English, I can help you with language as well. [Course Description] [Course Brief]
