“I am an instructor working with excellent ISDs and needed to know how I can be of help to their process and “Creating Design Ready Content” taught me enough of the process that I now feel I can be. Also, the strategies for breaking down the information can also be done for Instructor Lead Training.” – Jean R., BAH
