Dear Bryan & John

I have done more than just blend employee development performance, I have
linked it to specific outputs the BSC for one plus to the company's key
drivers. I have used Learningspace as the assessment tool where an
employee can have access to resources plus do self quizzing before sending
the self assessment to the administrator. This system is like the
balancing process in senge's Fifth Discipline. All competency objectives
are recorded and assessed. Yes, it can be easily done without the
problems you mention John.
