Harnessing Change: Agile Methods in Instructional Design
with Megan Torrance
In this session we will start with a quick definition of Agile and its use within the L&D space, then spend most of our time exploring how L&D teams that use Agile handle constant change, build relationships and get the job done. Specifically you will learn how:
The software industry is embracing Agile project management and there is much that we in learning & development can learn from them. Whether you’re using SAM, LLAMA®, Scrum or still exploring your options, there’s a lot to be learned from Agile teams in the ways that they manage their relationships and communications with the business in order to deliver their work on time, in budge and in line with expectations – even as those expectations evolve throughout the project.
Agile provides a framework for adapting to change as it happens and working with the project sponsor to deliver what’s most needed by learners. In a rapidly changing environment, the Agile mindset helps us harness change for good (instead of resisting it) and Agile techniques offer solutions for making constant change a practical reality. Rapid iterative cycles of design & evaluation allow us to test our solutions before full implementation, opening the doors to constructive change along the way.
And yet, software development projects face different challenges and have different needs than instructional design projects. A strict implementation of Agile methods may not apply to your L&D work. What can we borrow from this useful mindset and approach, and what do we need to shape specifically for an instructional or learning experience type of project?
