Good But Misaligned L&D Content Isn’t Good At All
Your content can be good – but not working at the priority purposes of the business.
So … is it really “good” content then?
OK. Hopefully that makes sense.
How to Get Aligned to the Enterprise Priority Needs
When your situation is less complex:
- Enterprise leaders can be interviewed in their offices or at lunch/dinners, and the business issues and needs solicited and feedback gathered on prior effort
When your situation is more complex:
- A “Board of Governors” can be formed to formally meet to set strategic direction, review functional needs, allocate resources, and review results
- Or you can get on the agenda of any routine meetings of the enterprise executives for their input, decision-making, and results review
Governance – After – Advisory
The need for a Formal Approach to what I call Governance & Advisory Systems is something you must determine for yourself.
And you may not start with something on the order of the next graphic – you may need to move toward that – at an appropriate pace for your context.
Leaders of the Enterprise sit in the Governance System/ function and approve requests from – or they make the requests of – the Advisory Systems (of committees/councils/etc.) – where the user community gets to make their case for their needs (before or after a Screening effort and/or an Analysis effort has validated the need.
Then control continues as the Advisory Council appoints people to the various teams – my types of teams are represented in the graphic.
Your may vary.
This model comes from my book: T&D Systems View … and the 12 O’Clock position of that model…
Note that 5 O’Clock is where my CAD methods would be placed – and my (version of ADDIE) MCD is at 6 O’Clock.
CAD and MCD are 2 of my 3 ISD model-sets – of the PACT Processes … a “lean” approach to ISD – using a collaborative Group Process for Analysis, Design, Development and Project Planning & Management – bringing together the Customers and Suppliers of performance-based ISD services.
