ADDIE or Agile? A false dichotomy

Torrance Learning

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.

ADDIE isn't dead; how can it be?

Integrated Learnings

There has been a lot of discussion, and an infamous article or two, in our field about the death of the ADDIE model. As a reminder, ADDIE stands for Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate. And if the attacks are based on the long timelines typically associated with ADDIE, then they make some valid points. Most of us have seen business sponsors' eyes glaze over when full project plans are introduced. And models such as ADDIE help us do so.

Though a variety of models guide our instructional design work, I’d argue that ADDIE functions as the basic backbone of the process. Just about every model, trend, and best practice in the field supports one of the phases of ADDIE.
