​​The PS Community was created to be a vendor neutral community whose purpose is to further the advancement of performer support as a discipline. Our charge is to collectively examine, implement, experiment, and improve the methdologies and technologies that enable performer support in our learning and support offerings. As a community we openly contribute vigorously, challenge courteously, and experiment courageously in an effort to learn from each other while helping to lift our industry's overall understanding and application of performer support.

Frank Nguyen

“Performance support isn’t a system, a project or methodology.  It’s a journey that an organization undertakes to shift from being a place where employees are trained before they do their work to a culture where employees learn a little bit every day and apply that to the work they perform.  The PS Community provides that same support to learning professionals throughout this journey from training to performance."
