Instructional Design includes:
- determining the desired learning and/or behavioral outcomes
- identifying the targeted learner’s existing knowledge and experience
- developing a training program that efficiently and effectively achieves the desired results.

We create a comprehensive training solution built on the foundation of the Instructional Design model known as ADDIE (Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, Evaluate), and incorporate advanced instructional design and adult learning philosophies from pre-eminent thought leaders such as:
- Robert Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction

Driving Behavior Change with LeanForward Instructional Design
Our Instructional Design philosophy is based on the concept of “lean forward” activities—those that engage the learner and require them to concentrate, put forth effort, and actively participate or lean forward.
By blending this concept together with the models and theories from training’s “best and brightest,” we maximize learner comprehension, retention, and behavior change.
Learners who experience LeanForward instruction achieve the desired level of competency more quickly and are more likely to apply their knowledge in the workplace.
As a turn-key, full-service elearning firm, we provide the right people, with the right knowledge, at the right time—transferring critical knowledge from those who have it, to those who need it.
