You see potential in good design. You can change behavior, drive results, decrease errors, and improve engagement. But, even the best designs are jeopardized if the process lacks the ability to support them. A great learning design driven by a flawed process can create havoc, such as:
  • Missed milestones
  • Unnecessary burden on SMEs and reviewers
  • Scope -creep
  • Unengaged learners

In this webinar, you'll meet the Successive Approximation Model (SAM). Richard will share the power of using an agile, iterative process for the design and development of learner-centric experiences and uncover six agile advantages of SAM that mitigate common learning development pain points.

Learn how SAM can help:
  • Manage client expectations and content development
  • Bring focus to designing performance-focused interactions
  • Minimize the risk of delay and endless revisions
