Courseware design decision pattern

I’ve delivered a few hundred workshops over the past 25 years and designed at least 10 courses myself.  Based on those experiences, I’ve developed and refined a courseware design decision pattern.  This decision pattern helps me create courses and course variants much more quickly than I could otherwise.  It also helps me take a longer-term view of courseware development and think in terms of building a “skills delivery platform“, not just a one-of-a-kind training event.  At the same time, I’ve used the Decision Breakdown Structure (DBS) as an innovation framework; this keeps me challenged to aim high and design-in creative ways to pass on the highest value skills.

When I get a “round-tuit” I plan on offering this decision pattern as part of the group subscription for educational institutions.  I’d love to hear some feedback on this idea.  How do you do courseware and curriculum development today?
