Determining the right strategy is one of the most difficult stages in training because the outcome depends on the chosen strategy.
I've never thought about learning. I think these 5 steps are really worthy and have a right to exist. However if you won't use them you will also reach your goals but will probably spend more time. My favorite step is the 4th one. Usually I make plans for everything and this is not a problem for me.
Wes Kieshshnick instructed a seminar that I attended several weeks ago. He is by far one of the most interesting professional development instructors whom I've encountered in the last 30 years (both as a teacher and previously in international industrial operations management).
Instructional Design is the essence of what separates Tier 1 universities from public universities these days. Why not give everyone a tier 1 education? It just involves implementing these tools enumerated on Wes' websites and blogs.
By the way, having witnessed his work firsthand, I highly recommend having Wes come instruct in person.
