Using ADDIE to Keep Your Compliance Resolutions

In this week’s post, Dave Correale, a Senior Instructional Designer at NXLevel Solutions, introduces a new blog series on using the ADDIE model to help build a better compliance training curriculum.

Now that the relatives have gone home, the ill-advised presents have been returned, and the eggnog in the back of the fridge has spoiled, it’s time to consider a New Year’s resolution to refresh and revive your compliance training strategy.

But getting your arms around your compliance training needs and developing a plan to address them can seem overwhelming. One tool that can help is the ADDIE model. In the training industry, we use ADDIE as a model for developing individual training solutions, but it can also be an effective tool for organizing your approach to a broader training strategy. Over the next several blog posts, we’ll use the ADDIE model as a framework for helping you build a compliance training plan worth celebrating.

Analysis – In this post, we’ll provide practical tips on how you can identify and prioritize your training needs. There are a lot of factors to consider, and we’ll discuss concepts and tools you can use to bring order out of the chaos.

Design – This post will be a two-parter. In Part 1, we’ll look at instructional design and how to design solutions to meet the training needs identified in the analysis stage. How do you choose whether to create eLearning modules, live workshops, microlearning, performance support tools, etc.?

In Part 2, we’ll discuss visual design and the role it plays in creating effective learning experiences. Do your training solutions look generic, or do they reflect your organization’s culture? Do your visual choices support or distract from your learning objectives?

Development – After design, it’s time to develop. But what do you develop first? And do you build it in-house or use a vendor? Is there an off-the-shelf solution you could use? Do you have existing assets that just need a refresh? We’ll explore the thought process that goes into deciding how to best use the resources you have available.

Implementation – How you implement your training plan is as important as the plan itself. Planning, timing, communication, support from the business, and getting the most out of your available learning platforms are just some of the elements we’ll examine in this post.

Evaluation – Finally, how effective is your compliance training? How can you tell? This post explores ways to determine whether your training is having an impact.

So, clean out the fridge, put the decorations away, and stay tuned for more tips on how to reduce risk through better compliance training.
