ADDIE Abandoned for Performance Consulting Skills

Living in Learning

For that last few days I have been contributing to a thread on the eLearning Guild’s network group on LinkedIn. The topic that has been hotly debated, trashed, twisted, modified, and/or exalted is none other than ADDIE.

ADDIE Cheat Sheet


Nine times out of ten, I recommend going with ADDIE. If you aren’t familiar, ADDIE stands for Analyze-Design-Develop-Implement-Evaluate. This doesn’t mean that ADDIE is without flaws. Still, since most methodology branches from ADDIE one way or another, it’s a great place to start building your skills. Trouble is, the ADDIE model has been written about to-death. Identify network capacity.

The Learning Continuum – Using the PDR Design Model

Living in Learning

Many of us cut our professional learning design teeth using the long-held tradition of the ADDIE instructional design (ISD) model. With that open-minded mentality, I confess to listening to the debate and wondering if the ADDIE model really is falling short, or if our application of it is worthy of re-examination. Insightful words to be sure, certainly not an overt indictment of ADDIE. Presence of the “96%&# does not mean ADDIE is obsolete.

12 performance consulting questions for L&D

From the Coleface

Whether you use 5Di, ADDIE or another model for learning design, here are the 12 questions I’ve found most important to ask at the start of a learning and development project (and validated with my network via LinkedIn): 1. Who is the target audience? total numbers and segments) 2. What would success look like? evidence/metrics before and after) 3. How can we measure success? Who (if anyone) demonstrates the target behaviour? What has been tried so far?

If you don’t know the solution & need to network/collaborate to find it, that’s learning. We can blame this on networks. How networks evolve: hierarchies are crumbling, rate of change much faster–we don’t know what’s coming next. ADDIE is content centric.

I’ve been a fan of HPT since it goes beyond ADDIE in considering other potential sources of problems than just skills (e.g. It helps to have the tools available in the infrastructure, a platform approach, which is why we advocate thinking about having a portal system and social networking in place in the organization, so you don’t have to build a whole infrastructure when you see the need.

PERT is a method of project management using a project network diagram.
