Barrier Removal

What Is Getting In The Way Of Success?

What can a leader do when productivity falters or performance drops? Whether we are talking about a team, a colleague, or even yourself, the first step to removing barriers to success is seeing the real problem. The Problem Analysis Framework is a simple tool for ensuring we focus on the right issue.


The Problem Analysis Framework asks two simple questions:

Does the person have the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) to perform at the desired level?

Does the person want to perform at the desired level?

Depending on the answers, the barrier to success could be one of motivation, selection, training, or environmental factors. Learning to remove these barriers can help you keep yourself and your team on track for success.
