What you'll get:

  •  Four SAM Minute Videos
  •  Supporting SAM Implementation Documents

  • Upcoming Webinars & Workshops on SAM

About SAM:

SAM is a different approach to the development of instructional design products that addresses the performance need through iterations, repeated small steps, rather than with perfectly executed giant steps. SAM challenges the notion of moving through a linear process (like ADDIE) from Analysis to Evaluation as an effective strategy for designing learning events intending to produce greater performance. SAM addresses the roadblocks we all face (product quality, meeting timelines and budgets, and managing SMEs). Most importantly, SAM is an agile learning development process built specifically for the creation of performance-driven learning.
