Dr. Sivasailam “Thiagi” Thiagarajan

Resident Mad Scientist

The Thiagi Group

Twenty years ago, Thiagi went cold turkey and quit using his grandparents’ ADDIE instructional-design model. Rather than just attacking the traditional model, he came up with an alternative that combines best practices from design thinking, creativity process, improv techniques, agile methodology, and cognitive sciences. His associates and hundreds of workshop participants have used this approach to design corporate training materials in a faster and cheaper fashion to produce more effective application to the workplace. In this walk-the-talk workshop, learn how design effective, efficient, and engaging learning packages that produce business results and professional growth.

This workshop is designed and delivered by Dr. Sivasailam “Thiagi” Thiagarajan. Here are some highlights of the trainer’s career:
•    Thiagi has conducted more than 25 workshops every year for the past 15 years. Thiagi has conducted training workshops in 26 different countries.
•    Thiagi has written more than 30 books on different aspects of interactive training strategies.
•    Thiagi received the highest honor from the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI), the Honorary Life Member Award. He also received ISPI’s Distinguished Service Award twice and Presidential Citations 17 times. Thiagi received the highest honor from the North American Simulation Gaming Association (NASAGA), The Ifill-Reynolds Award.
•    Thiagi was elected president of the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI), twice, 25 years apart (in 1979 and 2003).
