Agile vs ADDIE: Which Is Better for Learning Design?

Bottom-Line Performance

My last post was about Agile Learning Design , an iterative model of instructional design that focuses on collaboration and rapid prototyping. It is the hot new alternative to the old, and some have argued outdated, ADDIE model that has been the ultimate instructional design model for years. The most welcome change is the fact that an Agile model has you sharing your mockups, prototypes, and early suggestions with the client—right off the bat!

Readers of this blog know that I've been a big defender of ADDIE ( Adapting 20th Century Training Models for the Future , ADDIE isn't Dead, how can it be? , As a reminder, ADDIE stands for Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate. No ADDIE isn't dead. ADDIE should be considered circular. This enables ADDIE to be more Agile. And that's why the Agile method is so appealing. Would Agile ADDIE work for you? By Jay Lambert.

If you’re in the learning design business or working with game based learning , then you’ve probably come across the term “Agile” a lot recently, so we’re going to try and make sense of it. For almost 40 years the ADDIE model has reigned as king, the ultimate framework for instructional designers and training developers—but we have a feeling that’s about to change. So let’s dive in and learn about Agile Learning Design.

ADDIE or Agile? A false dichotomy

There’s a lot of buzz these days about whether we should abandon the training industry’s go-to model, ADDIE, for an Agile approach. A disclaimer: we’re all about Agile, or rather, LLAMA – the Lot Like Agile Methods Approach – here at TorranceLearning. But that doesn’t mean we give up on what ADDIE has taught us. One of the core tenets of an Agile approach is iterative development. ADDIE stands for Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, Evaluate.

ADDIE is probably the most well-known method of this linear process. Agile, with cross-skilled teams and an iterative development methodology, allows for changes and creative ideas at all stages of the project. Widely used in product development and IT, in agile development teams produce smaller pieces of content and review and enhance their work in multiple iterations or sprints. The agile teams are self-organizing and hold full accountability for the product.
