Eliminate Uncertainty. Improve Efficiency. Develop Great Learning Experiences.

Leaving ADDIE For SAM Workshop | Dec 6-7 | Tampa

Traditional instructional design methodologies focus on lengthy and rigid processes that aim to deliver a complete product near the end of the process. Often you discover post-production flaws or glitches that require significant redesign, costing you precious time and resources.

But what if you could test and pivot as you design to ensure your end-product meets learning, performance, time, and budgetary requirements? The Leaving ADDIE for SAM Megaworkshop will show you how to apply a successive approximation model (SAM) to your instructional system design that allows you build and modify incrementally from the start. The result—faster, leaner, and more effective learning programs.

Thousands of instructional designers use SAM for more flexible, agile, and productive program development.

Using the Leaving ADDIE for SAM Field Guide, written by Richard Sites and Angel Green, you’ll practice the techniques necessary to produce the meaningful, memorable, and motivational scenario-based learning experiences your organization needs, including:

  • Agile project management
  • Performance consulting
  • Stakeholder management
  • Performance improvement

Don’t struggle through lengthy and ineffective design processes that waste time and money. Learn the SAM methodology in its entirety and be able to immediately apply it back at the office. Your learners and organization will thank and praise you for developing superb learning experiences.

After participating in this workshop, you’ll be able to:

  • Explain the characteristics of a desired learning experience.
  • Design and plan a SAVVY Start.
  • Identify the events and deliverables in each phase of SAM.
  • Use a consultative approach to explain why an iterative approach leads to a better end product.


This two-day workshop begins with an overview of SAM and agile, and then catapults participants into hands-on practice using SAM to build initial prototypes, create collaborative teams,  manage deliverables, and more. You will also receive face-to-face guidance and support from the authors ofLeaving ADDIE for SAM and the Leaving ADDIE for SAM Field Guide.
