Analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation (ADDIE) are all important steps in the design of effective e-learning applications or any learning program. While there have been many adaptations of ADDIE, many of them were made before we had today's tools, challenges, and opportunities. As is being realized by the software industry with Agile, more radical process changes are now both needed and possible. The benefits: More efficient and effective processes and superior learning experiences in less time.

Join this candid conversation with author Dr. Michael Allen, CEO, and co-author, Dr. Richard Sites, Vice President of Client Services, both of Allen Interactions, in which they will discuss SAM, a new agile model for efficiently and effectively developing the best learning experiences possible. Lance Dublin, Founder and Chief Operator at Dublin Consulting, will moderate.

This is a special book launch event for the new ASTD Press book, Leaving ADDIE for SAM.
