From Learning Curves to Performance Improvement

Underlying Principles of Learning Curves 1. Each time you perform a task it takes less time than the last time you performed the same task 2. The extent of task time decreases over time 3. The reduction in time will follow a predictable pattern

1. Each time you perform a task it takes less time than the last time you performed the same task

2. The extent of task time decreases over time

3. The reduction in time will follow a predictable pattern

Example of a Learning Curve Suppose you start a term paper typing business. You time yourself on the first paper, then the second, and so on. Term paper 1 2 3 4 5 6 Time (in Minutes) 100 90 84.62 81.00 78.30 76.16 Note that only 90 of 100 minutes are used in the second repetition. This is an example of a 90% learning curve.

Plotting the Learning Curve All learning curves have this downward sloping curve.

Types of Learning Individual Learning Improvement when individuals gain a skill or efficiency by repetition of a job Organizational Learning Improvement from the groups of individuals from repetition and changes in administration, equipment, and product design
