This book exposes the reader to a comprehensive overview of instructional design using the Instructional Systems Design (ISD or ADDIE) model and project management techniques based on the framework and standards of the Project Management Institute and the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) Guide best practices. Throughout the book, ADDIE and project management are united in a “four-step combo.” Readers are taught to groove two disciplines to one beat.
Project Management Skills for Instructional Designers is intended to captivate the interest of the following audience:
- instructional designers,
- training managers and directors,
- training consultants,
- human resources managers,
- performance consultants, and
- project managers.
This practical guide uses the creative approach of storytelling to present the content in a way that is realistic and sequential to the way an instructional designer may work. A case scenario where an instructional designer is given a mandate by the boss to design, develop, and deliver automated sales management training is the story line around which the two disciplines are applied in the “four-step combo.”
