SupervisionWe use a systematic approach to organizational development addressing the challenges and opportunities facing organizations in these rapidly changing times. We emphasize the interdependence of job observation, job analysis, personnel selection, training, and evaluation in creating and maintaining highly motivated and committed job incumbents.

Our project approach is a variation of a methodology that has been used by most industries for decades. Depending on the industry, it is referred to as ADDIE, Instructional System Design (ISD), or Systematic Approach to Training (SAT). IPi is prepared to perform turn-key efforts by completing all five elements of the methodology analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation or assist you with one or any combination of the elements.
