CAD – Curriculum Architecture Design
For developing T&D/ Learning and Knowledge Management Paths/ Maps/ Menus/ Guides.
CAD – Phase 1
Getting the Project Steering Team in position to ensure that the effort focuses on their Critical Business Issues starts in Phase 1 of CAD – to produce performance-based T&D/L&D Paths, Maps, Menus or Guides.
The detailed CAD Project Plan is reviewed and approved/amended in the first Gate Review Meeting.
CAD – Phase 2
Getting the eventual Development Path/ Map/ Menu/ Guide focused on terminal performance and the enabling K/Ss – but not forgetting to salvage any prior investments in Content or Performance Support – happens in Phase 2 of a CAD effort.
That data is reviewed and approved/amended before going on to the next Phase.
CAD – Phase 3
Designing a Development Path/ Map/ Menu/ Guide is done using a Facilitated Group Process w/ Master Performers and others from the Analysis Team.
The Individual Planning Guide for learners & management to use to downselect & schedule is produced afterwards.
This is reviewed and approved/amended in the third Gate Review Meeting.
CAD – Phase 4
L&D: After the Path/Map is done showing the current state Content and defining all existing gaps including probable development/acquisition costs, the gaps are prioritized for build/buy by the Project Steering Team – in the final Gate Review Meeting – given the business impact potential that they see.
Gaps not targeted remain Un-Structured OJT (Informal Learning).
After a CAD effort an MCD and/or IAD efforts are started to build/buy Content – including Performance Support – per the architecture/content segmentation.
