I’ve been facilitating Master Performers in ISD Analysis and Design since my start in ISD back in 1979. Here is my story on how it all began for me:

Teaming for T&D GWW 1999 – 5 page PDF – on my story of inadvertently creating a team – out of frustration with too many revision cycles for a video script I was writing –  for training development back in 1979 – and liking the approach for using a Group Process to shorten cycle times and improve the quality of the output.
