Performance problems | psy7724 | Capella University


For behavior analysts, determining the function of problem behavior is necessary to develop effective intervention plans. This is common practice not only in clinical applications but within organizations as well. In this assignment, you will pinpoint a workplace performance problem, assess the reason why the problem exists, and identify strategies to improve performance.


Identify a performance problem in your current workplace, a previous workplace, or a hypothetical problem in a fictional workplace. Then complete the following:

  • Provide a brief description (one paragraph) of the workplace.
    • You might include the size of the organization, industry, management hierarchy, supports and resources, limitations, et cetera.
  • Pinpoint the performance problem.
    • Precisely define the problem behavior so that it is clear, concise, and countable.
  • Conduct an assessment to determine the factors contributing to the performance problem.
  • Review the scholarly literature, and identify strategies that would address the performance problem based on the results of the assessment.
    • Your strategies should demonstrate compassionate supervisory practices.
  • Discuss your personal experience with this assignment. Examples of what you might choose to discuss include the following:
    • Do you believe the organization (real, former, or hypothetical) would consider conducting an assessment and implementing strategies to improve the performance problem? Why or why not?
    • Were you surprised by the results of the assessment?
    • While the strategies are likely to be effective, do you think they are realistic?
    • Provide any other thoughts or considerations.

Submit both your performance problem analysis and your PIC/NIC and PDC Template to the assignment area.
