Back in the Day – Curriculum Architecture Design for HP

Slides from an HP Presentation About a CAD 

I did a CAD – Curriculum Architecture Design – for HP back in 1992 – and then Darryl Sink did the actual ADDIE-level development based on my modular designs for the T&D Events and their T&D Modules – think: Books and Chapters – for all of the gaps in the T&D Path.

Due to the Performance Model as the anchor for the design – the Time To Proficiency was reduced from 10 months to 3 months. The ROI – calculated by the HP Financial organization – was $1.25 Million.

I forget the time horizon – but all of that was calculated long after I was finished and handed off the analysis and design data to my client. This was my 3rd CAD effort with her – and was used deliberately in her less-Formal Training – as there was only 1 Learner versus a group warranting a Group-Paced approach (Workshop) – and she began to do the Performance Modeling and K/S derivation herself on future projects.

The 4 Phase CAD Effort

In this effort we followed my standard approach – represented in this graphic.

Award of Excellence

Here is the handout HP and the Sink organization handed out – at NSPI (now ISPI) after they won an Award of Excellence.

Note the use of the Performance Model data – to build the evaluation/ assessment tests. That Phase (III) could have been done as Phase II – but again, I wasn’t involved after the Phase I efforts – which were really all 4 of my CAD Phases (normally I would use Stage where HP used the word Phrase).


I’m still doing these projects – and developing others to do them themselves.
