Foo Foo – in Instructional Design and Performance Improvement

Who Do VooDoo? You Do?

I bet your resources are too constrained for you to willfully practice what I politely term Foo Foo.

Your terms may vary.

For some reason myths pervade the Instructional Design business – and the Performance Improvement business – and the Business Management business – each known by a variety of names. Each overlapped and gapped perhaps. But each bring value – or they wouldn’t be done but more than a few times. The marketplace decides that.

But, it’s all good. It’s all good to see innovation in improvement via these disciplines as they evolve. As they are forced to work together. Ah. Continuous Improvement.

To be expected.

It’s all good.

Except when it isn’t.

Here are links to Pages on this site with links to research findings off this site – on each of the various types of Foo Foo found often in Instructional Design and Performance Improvement, including:

Good general online Sources for your self defense…

Hmm. My Suggestion?

Follow more people in your PLN who post and otherwise share on what “the research shows” – versus – those who share what “they think” based on their years of experience or lack thereof and therefore offering a fresh perspective. Maybe not exclusively. Be open. But be wary.

Be selective. You owe yourself that.

As I say, it’s all good. It’s all good.

Except when it isn’t.
