Guy on Video Over the Years

Most Recent Years First

This page contains videos of Guy presenting or being interviewed.

The first video, at the bottom of this page, from over 30 years ago, in 1989, is Guy delivering the kick-off module of an 8-day ILT for AT&T Network Systems Product Managers. Guy delivered this ILT course 31 times – 26 times in the USA and 5 times in The Netherlands – 1987 through 1994. It is the only “delivery” he’s done in his ISD career, and he did it reluctantly, as a favor to a key client, who had promised him more development work if he would do these for Network Systems.


Guy was interviewed on July 1, 2022, by Katerina Kuznetsova – a Product Manager for Stiltsoft – a Software company in Gomel, Belarus. See the 56-minute YouTube video below.

The Learning Hack Podcast

Guy was featured, along with others on this podcast with Donald Clark and host John Helmer.

Getting in the flow. Workflow learning, or ‘learning in the flow of work’ as it is often called, is a hot topic these days. In a world where technology delivers fast, personalized information at the point of need, does it really make sense any longer to think of a course as the default unit of learning? This episode explores theorists and practitioners who strove to take learning out of the classroom and the training suite and situate it in the site of performance itself.

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.
