During his 7 years of experience, Kyle has tackled a wide range of performance issues using performance management, behavioral systems analysis and high impact training techniques. His research interests are in the areas of functional assessment in OBM and incentive design. Over the last few years, he has been focusing heavily on the issues that human service organizations face in particular and has been honing strategies to tackle their most common problems.
