    I am seeking a client with a group of 5 minimum people who present a performance problem (of any type). The individuals should be willing to work with me during the performance gap analysis, root cause analysis, front-end analysis and training needs assessment stages.
    The deliverable I can offer is a set of recommendations to their performance problem. I will design (but not develop) a learning solution if one of the recommendations points to training as a way to close the performance gap. Since not all problems point to training as a solution, the deliverable would then be the gap analysis, root cause analysis, front-end analysis.
    The time commitment for the individuals would be:
    Week of June 10 - ca. 1 hour with the client lead only (identify client problem statement)
    Week of June 17 - ca. 1 hour with each client rep (performance gap analysis)
    Week of June 24 - ca. 1 hour with each client rep (root cause analysis)
    Week of July 1 - ca. 1 hour client lead only (front end analysis)
    Week of July 8, 15, 22 - ca. 1 hour per week with each client rep (training needs analysis)
    If your organisation has an interest or need, please contact me by July 13. Likewise, if you know of a potential organisation or client who may have an interest or need for such analyses, feel free to pass on this information.
    A bit about myself - I am an MA TESOL student at University of Maryland - Baltimore County pursuing a graduate certificate in Instructional Systems Development (ISD). I currently teach in Austria at the University of Teacher Education, University of Applied Sciences as well as at a middle school and primary school.

    Best regards,
    Christina Crawford

    Dear Canh,
     
    Thanks for reaching out. I'm searching for a group of 5 people who have a problem that they need to solve - the "performance problem" as described is truly any type of problem. My responsibilities are to go through the stages operforming a gap analysis, root cause analysis and front-end analysis. Based on these analyses, I will then design and develop a training solution if the problem points to training as a viable solution to solve the problem. 
     
     Example problems given from past projects range widely, such as:

    -The teaching practice of 80% of new AF instructors does not include paired or group activities essential to develop oral proficiency and speaking skills in English. 
    -The majority of Agency X Language Instructors do not possess the skills to effectively design and create courses in Blackboard, requiring a disproportionate amount of "Blackboard Team" support.
    -instructors in XYZ company/educational institution not possessing skills to effectively use XYZ software
    -inside sales reps not meeting their monthly sales goals for the past 12 months
    -marathon team not meeting their time goals
     
    The group of people I'm searching for who have a problem they need to solve are ideally in the branch of education and TESOL, although any industry or area is possible.
     
    I hope that answers your question. If you have another question, feel free to contact me again! 
     
    Thanks,
    Christina
