How to Shift from Instruction to Performance Improvement with Guy Wallace- IDIODC Ep #179. 

Have you ever wondered why training solutions often don’t actually solve business problems? Or maybe you just inherently know that the REAL issue is something other than a training issue. How can you be sure? And if you’re right, how do you effectively communicate that to management? Performance Improvement Consulting, or PIC, is an outstanding answer to that question.

Guy Wallace is a long time Performance Analyst and Instructional Architect. He’s joining IDIODC to share his knowledge of PIC and how you can level up your career from ID to Performance Analyst Consultant. Discovering root causes to performance problems is critical in your success. Even if you’re “just the instructional designer”, you’ll want to know if the work you’re doing is going to have any impact on the business. And if the business problem is not a problem that your training solution will solve, then you will fail.

Theory of Learning Podcast – June 26, 2020

Theory of Learning 6 - Guy W Wallace

Episode 06: Guy Wallace on Importance of Analysis in Learning Design!


The ADDIE analysis phase serves a major role in the quality assurance process. It defines the project’s needs and ways to measure its success. If you skip ADDIE’s analysis phase, you can easily introduce mistaken assumptions into the project such as wrong focus that could lead the course to be boring and frustrating for the learners and to top it all you could end up with incomplete, redundant, or inaccurate content. If you rush to development, you may not catch those errors until you launch the course. At that point, it can be very costly to fix or redesign the course.
In essence, the training needs analysis is time well-spent. Unsurprisingly, the better you study the requirements prior to the course creation, the more effective the resulting course will be. Analysis helps you gain a clear understanding of the primary target audience, learning goals, physical and organisational constraints, technical requirements and structural characteristics of the course, and criteria used for assessment.
Let us dive a little deeper to see what this is all about, why is it important, what are the factors contributing to it, and, what can we, as facilitators, do to ensure that we build the right learning design. If you wish to include these in your life as an educator, then you are at the right place.

Episode 8: The Guy Wallace/ Thiagi Discussions, Pt. 1 (duration: 41:23)

This is part 1 of a two part series where Thiagi and our friend, Guy Wallace dive deeply into a discussion about their different instructional design approaches. Guy, as many of you know, has been an instructional designer and performance improvement consultant nearly as long as Thiagi. They have known each other for decades and over the years have had many formal and informal dialogues about what they do differently, and what that they have learned from each other. The idea for this series came from a session we did several years ago at ISPI in Dallas, where Thiagi and Guy did a session together debating style, substance, process, and results. Rather than a debate, however, the session turned into a masters’ class hosted by two of the greats. Our hope was to re-capture some of that here. Published July 7, 2010.

Episode 9: The Guy Wallace/ Thiagi Discussions, Pt. 2 (duration: 40:38)Here is the continued discussion between Thiagi and Guy Wallace. Enjoy. Published July 7, 2010.
