L&D: Where Do Your Learning Objectives Come From?

Don’t Make Them Up!

If they are “brainstormed” or otherwise “made up” – whatever Content you create is unlikely to transfer and make a positive impact to performance back on the job.


Get Real! Get Authentic!

Areas of Performance

Performance Model Data

Another Example of a Performance Model Chart …

Enabling Knowledge/Skills Matrices

It’s more than just Tasks. Conducting a Task Analysis alone is inadequate.

Don’t “make up” your Learning Objectives.

And don’t have your SMEs make them up either.

Research shows that SMEs can miss up to 70% of what a Novice Performer needs to do and know.

You need some way to bring it to the forefront – from their non-conscious memory.

I use a Facilitated Group Process.
