Agile Learner; Agile Leader

What Agile Means to Me

ID Reflections

Needless to say, an understanding (albeit very rudimentary) of the Agile philosophy supersedes all other learning (and that has been plentiful too). Coming from a very traditional, waterfall-driven background replete with all the drawbacks (what I perceive as drawbacks in comparison now), it took me quite a while to assimilate the philosophy—even the basics of Agile. This is the state of being truly adaptive and agile. Expertise KM learning Agile Workplace Learning

Rapid Training Development the Agile Way

Integrated Learnings

If you've developed a learning program for software, at some point or another you've likely had to develop training before the software itself was even ready. As with many (read most) technical training projects, Nationwide started developing training modules before any system content actually existed; but in a flash of inspiration, they decided to try using Agile development methodologies during the instructional design and development process. We've just never called them Agile.

Closing the Training Value Gap with Agile

I encourage everyone to consider using Agile to help close the training value gap
