This event aligns with the Professional Capability Application of ATD's Talent Development Capability Model.

Cathy Moore’s action mapping is one of the most practical and applicable tools for Instructional Designers to use over the last two decades. It is a working backwards process to create less content and more impact. While it is an elaborate process, I’ve summarized over 100 pages of her book on action mapping in a single slide. We’re going to walk through this single slide so you can start applying the basic mental model on your project right away:

  • What do people need to DO? -- Not know. Not general knowledge or skills. In your role, in your current position to make a difference.
  • What makes it difficult to DO? -- No, training may not be the answer. Content is surely not. Without knowing WHY you're not able to do what you're supposed to, everything will be just trial and error, resulting in mostly errors.
