The 10 Minute Or Less Learning & Development System Self-Assessment

The Model

From my 2001 book: T&D Systems View

Slide39

The Assessment

A quick rock around the clock to assess the adequacy of your efforts, for whatever reason, sub-system by sub-system.

Slide2

If you have areas of concern, those are most likely caused by a poor process, no process, or a process not adhered to.

The Book

T&D Systems View

From 2001 – but the early models of the book date back to a consulting project I did in the late 1980s with AT&T Network Systems.

T&D Systems View – Early Reviewer Book Quotes from 2001

“Guy Wallace has done it again! After demystifying the ISD process in his lean-ISD book, he tackles the corporate training and development system and puts it in a business-focused perspective. Whether you are in-house or serving as an external consultant, you will find Guy’s model an invaluable tool for enterprise training and development.

This analytic and design process ensures that you dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s when moving your company or client to Learning by Design, not Learning by Chance. The elegant clockface model helps you develop a clear picture of any organization and clearly helps you map out how best to effectively manage all the elements of the enterprise. Once the elements are mapped out, the model, through enclosed assessment and prioritizing tools, helps determine where and when to put corporate assets to maximize corporate return on investment.

This is a must-have book for any consultant or organization that is concerned about improving the performance of their organization through improving processes and competencies.”

—Miki Lane      Senior Partner        MVM Communications

 

“T&D Systems View is an excellent resource for anyone with a management role in training. The book has useful guidelines and models on how to structure and manage the T&D function. The models should drive meaningful discussions that lead to better decisions about the roles, responsibilities, and relationships of the enterprise’s leadership, T&D as a function, and T&D’s internal customers.”

—Judith Hale, Ph.D.        Hale Associates

 

“If you are not actively controlling the critical components of your T&D efforts, then they are by definition out of control. T&D Systems View provides an extremely comprehensive overview of all of the processes that contribute to a successful T&D system. Guy Wallace then takes the next step by showing you how to select those processes that are most critical to the success of your organization and how to get them under control before someone else does it for you. This is a must read for anyone interested in more closely aligning the T&D function with the organization’s strategy.”

—George West     Siemens Building Technologies, Inc.

 

“At first glance, T&D Systems View paints a formidable picture of the ideal business-driven training and development organization. Then, it dawns on you that, intentionally or not, formally or informally, you’re already doing these things. The question Guy Wallace raises is, ‘How well?’ If I were a CEO, this is how I would look at my training and development function.”

—John Swinney   Bandag, Inc.

 

“Guy Wallace has written an appropriate follow-up to his lean-ISD [book]. The breadth and depth of his latest book, T&D Systems View, is very impressive. He uses the analogy of a clockface to thoroughly explain his 12-system process. The procedure in the book allows you to assess any training and development operation from a systems’ perspective. It is easy to read and follow thanks to its consistent structure and format from chapter to chapter. An excellent overview of the process is included, along with helpful checklists.

—James D. Russell   Professor of Educational Technology, Purdue University    Visiting Professor of Instructional Systems, Florida State University

 

“[T&D] Systems View explains why the T&D function must be managed as a total system: to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing marketplace. The book shows, in detail, what must be managed competently for a T&D manager to ensure that learning happens by design rather than by chance. The best T&D managers manage the system components described in the book, though probably not as well as they will after studying and thinking through how to fill in the weak or missing components.”

—Dale Brethower, Ph.D.     Professor, Western Michigan University

 

“T&D Systems View is a useful guide for any organization assessing current T&D processes or establishing new ones. Its emphasis on T&D delivering ROI and shareholder value is a timely message and one critical to any T&D organization’s viability today.”

—Carol Nicks    Director, Workforce Development    -Verizon

 

“Whether you are new in the training business or an ‘old hand,’ this book will provide you with as much guidance as you need to get the job done. Guy has provided material that leaves ‘no stone unturned,’ yet there is sufficient flexibility for application in all training organizations. Well thought out. Many fresh ideas along with solid reminders of things we knew we should do, but we have, somehow, let go by the wayside.”

—Charline A. Wells     Programs Manager – Corporate Training     Sandia National Laboratories

Learning – Addresses Only 1 of 12 Variables of Performance

In the EPPI Models

When you conduct your “Analysis” efforts – do you uncover both the Gaps from Ideal or Others’ Best Performance – as well as the probable causes or root causes for those Gaps?

Not everything can be addressed via Learning.

Partially Addressing Gaps w Learning

For if you do not – and you address the Knowledge/Skills gaps with Learning – you might be simply wasting the investment for little or no or negative return.

And that’s not Good Stewardship of Shareholder Equity.

That doesn’t lead to good ROE – Return on Equity.

Or “return on expectations” for that matter.

30 Year Anniversary in Print: Group Process in Instructional Analysis and Design

Coming Up in September and November

2014.

The 30th anniversary of two important publications in my professional life.

From back in the day. Back to 1984.

Slide1

Should Be Read 2nd

But published before the Analysis article. Both the September and the November articles were submitted 10-14 months prior to their actual publications. Ah. Back in the day.

Not.

Analysis before Design, please.

Slide2

CAD – Training Mag – 1984 – 6 page PDF – the first publication about Curriculum Architecture Design via a Group Process – published in Training Magazine in September 1984. Original manuscript (30 pages) – How to Build a Training Structure That Won’t Keep Burning Down.

This approach was later incorporated into my 1999 book: lean-ISD.

Should Be Read 1st

Analysis before Design, please.

Slide3

Models and Matrices- NSPI PIJ -1984 – 5 page PDF – the first publication of the performance and enabler analysis methods for ISD, from NSPI’s (ISPI’s) Performance & Instruction Journal, November 1984.

This approach was also later incorporated into my 1999 book: lean-ISD.

lean-ISD is also available as a $30 paperback book – for more information and/or to order – please go – here.

Note: the cover design for “lean-ISD” was created by the late Geary A. Rummler.

2nd Note: Guy W. Wallace’s book “lean-ISD” – was a recipient of a 2002 Award of Excellence for Instructional Communication from the International Society for Performance Improvement.

Only Perfect Practice Makes Perfect

“Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect.”

- Vince Lombardi quotes from BrainyQuote.com.

Practice What?

And … by Design?

How do your Design activities/accomplishments get processed and documented?

I use a Group Process in my PACT methods and document the outputs of that group process in a Lesson Map…

LM TMC 1

 

 

Oh. And how do you know that THAT new behavior and cognition set that was PRACTICED to PERFECTION – was authentic and therefore can transfer back to the job?

What Analysis Data Feeds the Design?

In PACT we used two main sources for content items in a Lesson Map:

  • Performance Model data
  • Knowledge/Skill Matrix data

PM-KS used in design

 

What is PACT?

PACT is a methodology-set of ISD processes and practices.

 

The PACT Processes for T&D/ Learning/ Knowledge Management

The PACT Processes are covered extensively in the following 1999 book:
