Once learners are trained they still need support in applying knowledge and skills on the job. Relevant Learning's performance support systems play a key role in reengineering and change managment efforts by guiding employees with just-in-time answers to real-world problems. Effective performance support systems provide on-the-job help with:

[] making choices
[] accessing difficult, hard-to-remember, and critical business information
[] performing tasks
[] making comparisons
[] decision making
[] using software systems and other technical tools
