Cathy Moore, training designer, presenter and creator of the Action Mapping model speaks with Brenden Carter and Damala Scales Ghosh from The Learning Hook.

Join our action mapping 10-year anniversary mini-celebration as Cathy shares stories and deeper insights into her workplace performance analysis and design model, and discusses the use of rich scenarios for authentic practice – along with ways to save the world from boring training.

Some of the key elements of the conversation:

  • None of us enjoy a ‘dud’ scenario and how to avoid writing one!
  • The purpose of the Action Mapping model and how to get the most out of using it
  • How the model evolved over the last 10 years to include one more critical question
  • Differences between mini and branching scenarios, and when we might use each type in training design
  • How well constructed scenarios support people to discover the consequences of their decisions, rather than being spoon fed information
  • The processes, tools and essential steps in designing a successful scenario, and the importance of early testing
