The 7 Steps System

Every corporation is challenged to provide quality instructional learning experiences for multiple jobs. Every management team from small to large corporations is sincere about providing the most impactful training. 7 Steps Learning system can be used for all occupational tasks and is invaluable for mission-critical positions within the company.  As most Human Resources and instructional systems specialists know, accomplishing comprehensive training is not easy, given the many positions that can exist within a corporation. The average training developer needs a lot of time to convert all of these into learning experiences. The 7 Steps Learning roadmap is an X-ray view of the job from seven different angles. The benefit to this is the ability to implement, evaluate, audit, and diagnose the job from several vantage points.

Capture Your Occupational Content

Using a camera, phone, or tablet your instructional system specialists, managers or appointed mentors capture photo or video content for every detail in an occupation.


Creating Your Occupational Masterfile

Using the 7 Steps™ methodology you’ll move through the hierarchy of the initial capture, and diagramming of the internal and external environments, process flow, and the INs and Outs of each process, the 7 Steps application generates the content for the analysis of frequencies to determine the 20% that happens 80% of the time helping you target your instructional systems toward the majority of the occupation.  It also generates the Checklists tabling, the required sequences and best practices within an occupation. 

Define each occupation’s environments. Every job operates within definable environments that affect the implementation of that job’s tasks. Internal environments are closest to you in the specific space of the occupation. External environments are those beyond the immediate job space.

Process Flow
Every job has its own characteristic flow. There is always a point where the tasks start the job cycle and a point where they end it, only to start again. This cycle is the “Process Flow.” Charting the Process Flow provides an overview of the total job in one diagram.

INs and OUTs
Every job has processes that must be applied to certain inputs to produce specific outputs. To produce something (outputs) you must begin with the things you need (inputs). You then apply a process to convert inputs to outputs

Every job has processes and tasks that occur with different frequencies. Some tasks must be performed much more often than others. In fact, 20% of the tasks typically are performed 80% of the time. Learn those first to be highly productive 80% of the time.

Every job needs one or more checklists to ensure that the correct steps and actions will be performed in the right sequence, to the required quality, at the required cost and within all safety requirements. 7 Steps automatically generates the checklists from your INs and OUTs.

In every job, things go wrong. Some things go wrong more often than others. The Pareto 20/80 rule typically applies here as well. 7 Steps allows you to quickly capture the fault ID, the symptom that alerts one to a developing fault, it’s probable causes, and the corrective action for each cause.

Develop a Patrol Pattern and Inspection Sequence to ensure the successful completion of tasks within an occupation. Once employees know the 20% of the faults that occur 80% of the time, they can prevent serious problems by patrolling their job territories.

Creation and Delivery of Your Comprehensive Learning Experiences

Your instructional systems specialist can now create a syllabus or curriculum based on your company’s exact needs. This newly created content or updated content can be delivered to employees immediately through on demand lookup in the 7 Steps App or as a detailed “Packaged Learning Experience” in AR, VR, or XR.
