Accelerated ISD Analysis and Design Using a Facilitated Group Process

This Is Not New – 2 Articles on this from 1984

In 1983 my organization (R. A. Svenson & Associates) wrote 2 articles about the FGP – Facilitated Group Process – one on Analysis and one on Design and we submitted them in that order – a little over a month apart.

But they were published in Training Magazine and in NSPI’s Performance & Instruction Journal in the reverse order – 11 and 13 months after we had submitted them. Such were the publishing cycles back in the day.

I had been conducting ISD efforts using a Facilitated Group Process since 1979 – whenever I could (it wasn’t always feasible).

ISD Analysis

Models and Matrices – 5 page PDF, published in NSPI’s (ISPI’s) Performance & Instruction Journal, November 1984 – This was the first publication of the Performance and Enabler Analysis methods for ISD using a Facilitated Group Process that I have been using since 1979 and as an ISD consultant starting in 1982.

ISD Design – of an Instructional/Curriculum/Learning Architecture

Performance-Based Curriculum Architecture Design via a Facilitated Group Process – 6 page PDF– published in Training Magazine in September 1984. –This was the first publication about Curriculum Architecture Design. Plus – the original manuscript (30 pages) – How to Build a Training Structure That Won’t Keep Burning Down.

But wait! There’s more!

My 1999 article on using a Facilitated Group Process Back in 1979

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.

The PACT Processes for Performance-Based Instruction/ Training/ Learning/ Learning Experiences.

Most all of my books address the use of teams in ISD/LXD efforts.
