I intend to write a separate post for each of the phases of ADDIE. In each post, I will share some of my best practices as well as my lessons learned. I hope you find this series helpful.
I’m beginning the series with Assessment.
What is Assessment?
This is the first phase in the ADDIE model. The purpose of this phase is to understand the problem that the Business is seeing and how best to address it.
The Business is asking you to solve a performance related problem and they believe that training is the solution. Cool, thanks! There can be other solutions (e.g., compensation, operational, etc.) so please think beyond training; you are more likely to see tangible results if you do.
