In the design of instruction and training programs, Centre Consulting employs instructional strategies that are well grounded in cognitive science and learning theory. When developing new courseware Centre Consulting first ascertains if a needs assessment has been conducted. First, we conduct a comprehensive needs assessment to establish the purpose, audience, context, resources, constraints and types of content needed. This helps in establishing what level of training sophistication may be necessary. The Analysis phase of the ADDIE model takes into account many aspects that drive the instructional characteristics of the course. The Analysis phase, along with the needs assessment, is often understood as the Front End Analysis (FEA). There are many analyses within the FEA including an audience analysis (salient characteristics of the end user and other stakeholders), a context analysis (environment for which the training is being developed), a training resources and support analysis (constraints and limitations such as budget, technology, facilities and personnel resources) and a media analysis which will determine the level of sophistication and interactivity for the course to be developed.
