Experience Design

Don't be satisfied to deliver skills only, provide them with "experience". Let us help you transform your training programs.

Evocable Experience Portfolio

Good judgment is the result of experience, and experience is the result of bad judgment.

Experience is the association of choice with consequences. It distills over time and its acquisition can be very costly.

Functioning in the real world requires a daily chain of choices to be made; how to allocate limited resources, who to involve in important communications, when to initiate key processes, how to most effectively measure progress, etc. These daily decisions are usually based on some established or instinctive set of criteria distilled from past experience. Many of the small choices confronting us are made almost out of reflex (sometimes called "gut instincts") based on this internal "Experience Portfolio".

Key components of the experience portfolio are size and "evocability". When we have limited experience or can not readily recall similar situations or associated consequences, our choices reflect ignorance of inherent risk and may thus result in erroneous conclusions and poor choices. If experience is not sufficiently poignant to allow us to readily recall it, it will not become a lasting part of our evocable experience portfolio.

Thus, it becomes clear that expansion of the evocable experience portfolio should be a critical element of any development activity. A key question that should be asked of any development tool is "Does it effectively and efficiently expand the evocable experience portfolio?"

Experience Design

Because there are risks inherent with experience (some of which are beyond acceptable tolerances) learning and experience have traditionally been viewed as separate activities. Experience Design is a ground-breaking methodology that seeks to effectively and efficiently grow the evocable experience portfolio in individuals and organizations by incorporating relevant simulation into the learning environment. Humentum programs leverage simulation to allow participants to apply the knowledge / skills in real-world situations, allowing them to feel realistic consequences, expanding the evocable experience portfolio and delivering experience.
