Whither ISD, ADDIE and HPT?

Nov 07, 2006

This month's Big Question from Learning Circuits is notable mostly for containing more acronyms than words (for the uninitiated, courtesy Harold Jarche, HPT stands for 'Human Performance Technology', ISD stands for 'Instructional Systems Design [or Development]' and ADDIE is a process, 'Analysis, Design, Development, Design, Evaluation', stemming from the Systems Approach to Training (SAT)). The question is, are they relevant? Jarche writes, "The short answer is yes, but not everywhere." And me? I might think about this, but frankly, these concepts don't touch my life and work, never have. So maybe I'm not the best person to ask.
