Dr. Fastbuild, or, How I Learned to stop ADDIE-ing and Love the RID

I admit, a cheesy and arguably weak take-off on the Stanley Kubric doomsday classic, but the sentiment is there.

There's an almost tragic community (including those who should know better) who espouse the beliefs and all the wonders of ADDIE.  I see it time and again in job postings where an "understanding of the ADDIE model" is an essential job requirement.

For an instructional designer planning e-learning solutions.

From organizations claiming to be on the leading edge of innovative solutions and technologies.

Really, guys?
