The Lead Developer Is Key
I always have someone designated as the Lead Developer in my Instructional Development efforts. For the sake of the HAND-OFFS.
Are you familiar with the phrase “dropped the ball”?
Adapt that to “dropped the baton” for a better concept – to avoid.
MCD is my version of ADDIE.
Hand-Offs between any of the Phases can be problematic.
I employ a Project Planner/Manager to do that across all 6 phases of MCD – and they oversee and orient a designated Lead Developer – and the two of them co-conduct a Development Team Kick-Off meeting to ensure a smoother hand-off.
I covered this in part-8 of a 12-part series I did back in 2007 for ISPI’s PerformanceXpress (PX) e-newsletter.

A PDF of that 12-part series is available for free – here.
