There’s a distinct difference between a performance program and a performance process. Programs is defined as a planned series of future events, items, or performances. Alternatively, ‘process’ is a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end.

Programs follow detailed proposals or action steps. Processes follow a series or number of things related or unrelated that derive into a sequence. Design thinking is a process used to problem-solve by following sequenced details that evolve through creativity and exploration. Programs provide less freedom of creative exploration. WholeBeSM provides a design-thinking process with a design sensibility method.

Design Sensibility is design-thinking for transforming performance behaviors.

John P. Kotter used findings from a ten-year study to summarize an effective transformation process. Michael E. Porter argues strategy is a choice on what effectively works within systems of activities, rather than imitating techniques. Behavior transformation results from a series of performance observation within task and environment activities. This process is systematic, building upon performance findings. Performance programs elicit activity imitation which may or may not support the empowerment and building performance skills.

Design Sensibility interconnects health and satisfaction.

Awareness strengthens by actively listening for problem-solving. Health resources are vast and continue to grow as technology implodes. Design sensibility guides by empowering awareness of body responses for reducing performance barriers including fatigue, brain fog, indigestion, and sleep quality.
