ADDIE isn't Dead; it's just more Agile

ADDIE isn't Dead; it's just more Agile | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

ADDIE stands for Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate. Of course, we are using DADDIE now, having added Define to the beginning of each project. No ADDIE isn't dead. But it is evolving.

ADDIE should be considered circular.

And that's why the Agile method is so appealing. It seems everywhere we go these days, a major aspect of a project is speed. How fast can it be built and rolled out? In our frantic world, this is likely true no matter which industry you are in.


The speed in which we can effectively perform this with ADDIE will always be a factor.


....Imagine a scenario where we keep addressing critical needs until there aren't any. Wow, that would be performance improvement in an organization.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

In the early 2000s, the death of ADDIE was also talked about.  It was too slow (where you get there, there isn't there anymore), too linear, too rigid, too linear.   Yet comments from others also defend ADDIE as a successful tool, where it's all in skills and context of those who use it well.  

    

It may also be what is old is new again.   Don Clark, a prolific Instructional System Design writer comments that "the U.S. Armed forces have been using ADDIE quite successfully since the end of the Viet Nam war to train their people to operate in very complex environments."  He mentions that ADDIE has changed.  
    
It is facile to blame the model, any model.  Instead, stepping back to see how a model has been adapted is what can make a difference now.  ~ D

Learning Design Perspectives: SAM and ADDIE

Learning Design Perspectives:  SAM and ADDIE | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

The author pointed says that no model (old or new) will prevent ‘boring, lifeless training.’   Can the [classic] ADDIE model be enhanced?  Absolutely. 

Excerpts:

The essential differences in these models, including what’s captured in Allen’s SAM process, is to make the model less linear and to include feedback loops within the process for regular look backs, particularly to the data from the analysis phase. 


The problem with these models, including SAM, is that they seem to require redundancy.  There are certainly instances when such redundancy is not necessary. 


... the ADDIE model was [not] designed to be a strictly linear process anyway...

[The author]  ...prefers this cyclic visualization of ADDIE to better show the interactions between the phases.


From the comments:  " Is SAM similar to Agile and ADDIE similar to Waterfall, as in software development?

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

This thoughtful article and  comments help in getting a perspective on any model past and present.  Commenter Karen offers that “pure Agile” approaches do not work for all projects.  She mentions  “AgileFall” as a combination of approaches.  

She also suggests that a combo of SAM and ADDIE will emerge, keeping ADDIE’s structure and proven methods while incorporating SAM’s iterative approach. ~  Deb
