In this article, I have proposed a domain and definition for the human performance technology field. I contend that the domain can provide an organizing structure for the field. The proposed domain consists of three major components: management functions, performance systems development functions, and components of human performance systems. In making this proposal, I have discussed as well systems theory and professional practice and outlined three major areas of implications: research, practice, and professional preparation. The domain presented is explicitly derived from and consistent with the principles of systems theory.
