Free Self-Development Resources For Learning About My ISD and PI Methods

I titled all of this The School of PACT – back in the early 2000s.

PACT Practitioner Self-Development and Certification Paths

This page leads to 5 website “PACT Path Pages” – which are intended to provide guidance in using the Free Resources that Guy W. Wallace offers for the self-development of Performance Competence in the 5 Key PACT Practitioner Roles:

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

See the links to those pages below.

PACT 5 Key Roles.png

Note: “Roles” can sometimes equate to Job Titles – but more often the “Role” would relate to one of the “many hats” one might need wear in the conduct of their ISD job. One could be an Analyst and the Project Manager and delegate the other Roles to others, as one example.

The 5 PACT Methodology-sets:

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 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 – and IAD – 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 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).
