ISD Processes Maturity
Either you buy into the Maturity Model thing – or you don’t.
Here is my example of that concept applied to ISD – Instructional Systems Design – sometimes known as Learning or Training or Knowledge Management – or some variation on those ideas/concepts.
You need to start where you are – and climb the steps of the MM – as adapted to your culture/language/etc.
Here are additional Blog Posts from me on this:
- An ISD Processes Maturity Model
- So if it is a Valid Need with Enough ROI Potential – What Is Your L&D Function’s Response “Maturity” Level?
- Process Maturity Models Applied to ISD Processes
ISD Processes Centricity
If you are going to improve your Processes continuously – you’ll need a model for what they are – so you can divide and conquer (improve) while keeping a systems perspective.
Here is mine.
Adapt as needed.
Here are some resources from me on this:
- 2001 book… T&D Systems View… which is available as a free PDF, and…
- 2001 book… T&D Systems View… as a paperback for $20.00 USD plus s&h.
And there is a Final Friday series in 2015 with a focus on the 12 sub-systems of a T&D System – per my model.
ISD Processes Alignment
Having your Processes all dressed up and ready to go – is only the capabilities getting ready part – it’s the execution part that’s important – and it’s the front end of that ready-aim-fire execution that produces results worthy of the investments – IMO anyway.
How formal or informal or blended your approach to alignment is critical to the successes of your efforts.
I don’t subscribe to improving or formalizing everything – just because you can.
But – because you should.
Here are a couple of resources for this:
- Alignment Is Important. Alignment to What?
- Sitting at the Top of the Clock-Face: Governance and Advisory Systems/Processes – A Formal Approach to Alignment for T&D/ Learning/ Knowledge Management
And Who Should Help You Decide That?
Using visible, defined processes that are focused on their needs – that continuously improve – as needed by those Stakeholders.
Because not all processes are equally important.
And that picture changes over time – and needs continuous assessment as to its adequacy.
