ADDIE Model

Many frameworks and models are available to help you break down the training development process into actionable steps. Using a systematic process for training development ensures that you follow key steps for successful development, provides a guide for managing the training project, and helps support communication about the project with your team. Use the specific framework or model that fits your training needs, that you are most comfortable with, or that your organization prefers.

This site uses the ADDIE model which describes a flexible, systematic process that training developers can use to develop training for adult learners. The cyclical model has five stages: Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate. Each stage has a deliverable that feeds into the next stage and includes opportunities to gather feedback that informs training development.
