  1. 1. Planning The following diagrams identify the essential planning components necessary to fully assess, plan, implement and evaluate how ACED conducts a continuous Learner Needs Analysis and Learner Profile. In order to provide the most effective method to create a robust and well balanced learning experience for your team we strongly believe that a thorough process includes a SWOT analysis, a pre-assessment and a gap analysis to further evaluate what the true needs are for your program. A SWOT analysis will identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and Learner threats of your current program. The Pre-Assessment will be given to a segment of your Analysis audience to identify the desired goals and needs. The Gap Analysis will identify additional opportunities to explore in order to build a well-designed program. This initial consultation is essential in ensuring the successful knowledge acquisition as well as an effective and efficient successful launch of your program. Once this process is complete, data is gathered in several areas by utilizing the target audience and key players to analyze and synthesize the information to hone in on the exact needs of your audience. Consultation SWOT Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) are identified to provide and develop content as well as Evaluation review content by an expert SME panel to ensure content accuracy. Which is also serves as the review process. The Instructional Designer will further develop, design and implement the program ensuring content is well constructed for knowledge and skill acquisition. The following step is another mechanism to ensure quality-peer review. Once program is finalized we Alpha and Beta Test to further fine tune any edits, revisions and adjustments. We are true believers of the ADDIE Model to ensure all components meet the desired goals and objectives of the teaching plan. Via our stringent process we not only peer review but Alpha and Beta test the developed program to edit, adjust and revise needed changes. Finally once this process is complete launch is eminent. After a participant completes the program is evaluated to identify future and potential updates, revisions as this would be an Pre- Gap Analysis ongoing process to ensure quality assurance measures for a consistent successful program.
