T&D: 33 Year Anniversary of My NSPI Presentation on Curriculum Architecture Design

It Was My 1st National Presentation

I had presented this at the NSPI Chicago Chapter the fall before.

It was all about Architecting Content – modularing and organizing – existing and gap Content – and creating Paths – multiple Paths – through the Content to improve peoples Performance Capabilities. All driven by the Performance Requirements of the job(s), and the Processes.

I had started my book on all of this earlier, in 1983, but didn’t get it done until 1999. That book is “lean-ISD.”
