Model Learning

Trainers want to create new programs in the most efficient, costeffective way, but at the same time, they don’t want to sacrifice quality and learner and stakeholder satisfaction.

Lean, Six Sigma, and ADDIE can be a match made in training heaven—the first two maximize value by eliminating waste and minimizing variability, while the other provides a blueprint for the development of training.
