You see potential in good design. You can change behavior, drive results, decrease errors, and improve engagement. But even the best designs are jeopardized if the process lacks the ability to support them. A great learning design driven by a flawed process can create havoc, such as:

  • missed milestones
  • unnecessary burden on subject matter experts and reviewers
  • scope-creep
  • unengaged learners.

In this webcast, you'll meet the Successive Approximation Model (SAM). Richard will share the power of using an iterative process for the design and development of learner-centric experiences and uncover why the Agile advantages that SAM offers can mitigate common learning development pain points.

Attendees will learn how SAM can help:

  • Manage client expectations and content development.
  • Bring focus to designing performance-centered interactions.
  • Minimize the risk of delay and endless revisions.
