And now you’re going to really get it!
You asked for examples of my detailed Projects Plans – detailed Analysis Reports – detailed Design Documents – and here as a bonus to complete the package – the Administrative Manual – all for NSPI’s (now ISPI) Awards Program Redesign effort – from an extended project – done pro bono from my firm SWI Svenson & Wallace Inc. – and many others across the Society – planned and conducted by me and my partners and our SWI staff from January 1993 through January 1995 – 24 months.
Here are the binders’ spines before they were each emptied of their contents and then PDF’d.
Here are links to the documents (large PDFs):
- NSPI AoE Redesign Proj – 1 Project Plan – January 1993r – 195 pages.
- NSPI AoE Redesign Proj – 2 Analysis Report – December 1994r – 77 pages.
- NSPI AoE Redesign Proj – 3 Design Document – January 1995r – 71 pages.
And then another ISPI team produced this next – for the new ISPI (no longer NSPI): International Society for Performance & Instruction:
- ISPI AoE New Admin Manual Sept 1995r – 258 pages.
After putting in literally hundreds of hours – the effort was handed off to another team – which put in place part of the design. Frustrating. Very.
They did not implement the one piece that drove me to undertake this entire effort in the first place – The Feedback Process. Feedback captured routinely – without having to ask for it specifically – causing a reactionary/let’s go get it now (late) effort.
End of Part 1.
Part two – if I ever get to it – will be/would be about my drive to address this back then, and the two cases I’ve experienced – about chasing down the feedback after the fact – since then.
