Video Series 08 – Go For Performance – The PACT Processes

The PACT Processes for performance-based Instruction/T&D

PACT has been proven in hundreds of projects by my staff & the staff of my clients that I have trained. This is my series of short videos on PACT.

01

T&D: PACT is my ISD methodology-set. It includes 3 levels of Instructional Design and a common approach, tools and templates for Analysis and Project Planning & Management. PACT has been proven in hundreds of projects by my staff & the staff of my clients that I have trained.

02

T&D: CAD Phase 1 – Project Planning & Kick-Off: client & other key stakeholders are interviewed & a Project Plan/Proposal is produced, reviewed & approved & resourced. PACT has been proven in hundreds of projects by my staff & the staffs of my clients that I have trained.

03

T&D: CAD Phase 2 – Analysis: the Target Audience, their Performance Competence requirements, the Enabling K/S are determined and existing content is assessed for reuse. PACT has been proven in hundreds of projects by my staff & the staffs of my clients that I have trained.

04

T&D: CAD Phase 3 – Design: the Analysis data is processed into Modules that will become Lessons, Events & Paths to be personalized via an Individual T&D Planning Guide. PACT has been proven in hundreds of projects by my staff & the staffs of my clients that I have trained.

05

T&D: CAD Phase 4 – Implementation Planning: the Path gaps & modifications to existing content are priced and prioritized for development/acquisition in follow-on MCD efforts. PACT has been proven in hundreds of projects by my staff & the staffs of my clients that I have trained.

06

T&D: MCD Phase 1 – Project Planning & Kick-Off: client & other key stakeholders are interviewed & a Project Plan/Proposal is produced, reviewed & approved and resourced. PACT has been proven in hundreds of projects by my staff and the staffs of my clients that I have trained.

07

T&D: MCD Phase 2 – Analysis: the Target Audience, their Performance Competence requirements, the Enabling K/S are determined & existing content is assessed for reuse. PACT has been proven in hundreds of projects by my staff and the staffs of my clients that I have trained.

08

T&D: MCD Phase 3 – Design: the Analysis data is processed into Instructional Activities – INFOs-DEMOs-APPOs – and are rolled up into Lessons & then rolled up into Events. PACT has been proven in hundreds of projects by my staff and the staffs of my clients that I have trained.

09

T&D: MCD Phase 4 – Development: Work on Lessons in parallel instead of series. Use a formal Kick-Off meeting so everyone knows the entire design to minimize redundancy. PACT has been proven in hundreds of projects by my staff and the staffs of my clients that I have trained.

10

T&D: MCD Phase 5 – Pilot Tests FULL DESTRUCTIVE TESTS & test for Learning/ Performance capability pre & post, & accuracy, completeness & appropriateness. PACT has been proven in hundreds of projects by my staff & the staffs of my clients that I have trained.

11

T&D: MCD Phase 6 – Revision & Release: Instruction is updated & released into Processes for Deployment or Access, & Administrated, Evaluated & Maintained by other Processes. PACT has been proven in hundreds of projects by my staff and the staffs of my clients that I have trained.

12

T&D: IAD Phases 1-6 is when my clients don’t need a more traditional type of Instruction and where only Job Aids, Demonstrations or Performance Tests are to be produced. PACT has been proven in hundreds of projects by my staff and the staffs of my clients that I have trained.

13

T&D: PACT efforts may trigger an EPPI effort, where Stage I leading to a Stage II effort to develop and or acquire non-instructional solutions required. PACT has been proven in hundreds and hundreds of projects by my staff and the staffs of my clients that I have trained.

14

T&D: The PACT Process are part of a T&D Systems View framework –found at 5 & 6 in the Clockface model – along w/ 44 other Processes that exist in most T&D functions. I see ISD as a New Product Development feeding Ongoing Deployment & Access systems until maintenance is needed.

15

T&D: When I created my PACT Processes for ISD in the early 1980s, I intended to link my ISD methods to my Performance Improvement methods – at the Analysis Phase. PACT has been proven in hundreds & hundreds of projects by my staff and the staff of my clients that I have trained.
