In this course we’ll teach you how to use some of the same techniques that companies like Apple use to deliver high quality software, to quickly design and deliver high quality learning solutions.
The techniques that we’ll cover in this class are not just theoretical. They are based on the real life experiences of training professionals and learning organizations that have made the switch from ISD to Agile.
These organizations and individuals were able to reduce the time required to develop and deliver training solutions, achieve world class customer satisfaction scores, and enjoy increased employee engagement scores. More importantly, agile allowed these organizations to align learning outputs with business strategy and gain the trust and admiration of their business stakeholders.
