People, process, and performance occupy a critical place in social systems such as Business, Education, or Public Health. Creating a culture enhanced through trust, relationships, and communication is an all-encompassing endeavor that touches every individual in the system. People-building endeavors such as mentoring and future-proofing of individuals through learning how to learn are becoming critical. Being present, caring empathetically, respecting differences even of the weakest member bring advantages to the system. Be it corporate organizations, classrooms, or communities, collaboration and cooperation among people lead to successful processes.
Processes, in turn, can be described as creativity, decision making, passion for excellence, life-long learning, thriving on ambiguity, just to name a few. In this information age, knowledge management process can be better streamlined; thus, saving resources, energy, and time. Creating a culture of innovation and experimentation is crucial in such a system.
People and processes lead to performance. New experiences, new actions, and new results are the outgrowths of fulfilled people and successful processes. Performance observed through portfolios, competence indicators, opportunities to improve, ethical practices, and inclusive research paradigms are ways to go into the unknown future of our professions.
