Best Practices: Precision Questioning
The May meeting for Austin's PMI chapter featured a workshop on determining requirements using Precision Questioning, by Dennis Matthies of Vervago, the creator of the Precision Questioning technique. This is a method of decomposing information to get the root of the issue, and break it down into as many questions as necessary to ensure questions are precise. It was a great workshop, and as the eLearning Council plans events, we may want to host a workshop with Dennis. I had a tendency to annoy people who didn't want to give precision answers by asking these type of precise questions, and I found it refreshing to not only see it being valued and studied, but think it's very relevant to instructional design on a course by course basis, but for any training development.
