T&D: ISD Self-Development Paths Through Free Resources

Guy W. Wallace offers for the self-development of Performance Competence in the 5 Key PACT Practitioner Roles using FREE Resources available on this website:

  • PPA– PACT Performance Analyst
  • PCD– PACT CAD Designer
  • PMD– PACT MCD Designer
  • PLD– PACT Lead Developer
  • PPM– PACT Project Manager

  • PACT Performance Analyst – PPA

    This “role” does all of the analysis in both CAD and MCD/IAD – which in PACT involves: 1) gathering Target Audience data, 2) modeling Performance of both the current state “ideal” of Master Performers and current state “gaps” of the non-Master Performers and determining the probable causes for those gaps, 3) systematically deriving the enabling Knowledge and Skills, and 4) assessing all existing content for its ReUse potential – as is or after modification. Performance Modeling and deriving the enabling K/Ss are done in a Group Process with designated Master Performers, other SMEs, and sometimes Novice Performers (with promise) and supervisors/managers of the Target Audience.

  • PACT CAD Designer – PCD

    This role facilitates the Group Process Design Team Meeting in CAD – Curriculum Architecture Design – efforts to process all of the analysis data in a 7-Step process for creating a modular T&D/L&D Path and creating “Specifications” for all gaps at two levels: Events and Modules.

  • PACT MCD Designer – PMD

    This “role” facilitates the Group Process Design Team Meeting in MCD – Modular Curriculum Development – and IAD – Instructional Activity Development – efforts to process all of the analysis data in a 9-Step process for creating a modular design of an Event Map (of Lessons) a Lesson Map (of Instructional Activities) and post-meeting the Instructional Activity Specifications for hand-off to the Lead Developer and Development Team for building the Pilot-Test content and Pilot-Test support materials.

PACT Paths - CAD and MCD-IAD

  • PACT Lead Developer – PLD

    This “role” is a junior Project Manager role for MCD and IAD efforts – plus is responsible for leading the Development Team in the micro-project planning of “Lesson Assignments” – and in the creation of the modular Events, all while maintaining the modular integrity of the MCD/IAD designs and any CAD designs. This “role” also leads the Pilot-Testing efforts of the Content they oversaw the development of, and of any subsequent “Revision & Release” efforts of an MCD or IAD effort.

  • PACT Project Manager – PPM

    This “role” plans, prepares and conducts all informal and formal meetings with the clients and stakeholders, develops Project Plans and Proposals, and with the help from other PACT Practitioners develops all Analysis Reports, Design Documents for both CAD and MCD/IAD efforts, Implementation Planning Reports (CAD), and Pilot-Test Reports (MCD/IAD).

Certification of PACT Practitioner Performance Competence

Certification of Performance Competence for PACT Practitioners is the same here as it is for the work that PACT Practitioners do for their internal and/or external clients.

The approach here is to enable self-development toward the performance-based task performance capabilities.

First one acquires awareness and knowledge of the basics of PACT – then one develops the skills in Performance on-the-job.
