- Provide each activity at the best time -- in the workflow, available on demand, spaced over time...
- Let people pull the information they need to complete the activity -- no more information dumps!
- Enjoy creating challenging activities that people want to complete.
- Show how your project has improved the performance of the organization.
Using humor and lots of examples, Map It walks you through action mapping, a visual approach to needs analysis and training design. Organizations around the world use action mapping to improve performance with targeted, efficient training."
