Performance-based Instructional Analysis for Enterprise L&D

It’s a Lost Art It Seems

Analysis that is. Scan the program of your next conference and count the times the word “analysis” is found.

Scant few I bet.

In the haste to “just do IT” (Instructional Technology that is) most L&D Content Developers or Curators skip the analysis of terminal performance…


… which is the THING we are supposedly trying to ENABLE – almost all of the time – with our content in the moment of need and/or prior – and sometimes, although all too rarely, afterwards – to fend off that Forgetting Curve. But that’s about Design.

The Analysis would tell us if the job itself will be reinforcing enough all-by-itself – or whether or not THAT performance would benefit from some Performance Support in the moment of the Performance Need – or whether or not THAT might be too little too late.


As always – it depends.

Buzz Thoughts...a


Analysis will also tell you about that “IT DEPENDS” stuff.

Or it should.

Mine does.

I have a series of videos that explain my ISD methods.



Here are those that fall into the Analysis sub-series.

Plus there are many other ISD and Performance Improvement videos in the Resources tab.

Instruction is a sub-set of Performance Improvement

Because we believe in Performance-Based Training & Development (a.k.a: Performance-Based Learning) our ISD methods require Analysis of the Performance Competence Requirements – which naturally leads to the identification of other Performance Improvement leverage in all other areas beyond awareness/ knowledge/ skills of the Performer, so too does our video series lead to our Performance Improvement (PI) method.

Slide1 (7)

Your models may vary.
