"Action mapping is a framework/method/process that helps Instructional Designers design business training. It was developed in 2008 by Cathy Moore.
It is quite effective in analyzing performance problems, identifying solutions and designing activities that challenge learners and help them practice learned knowledge.
It should be understood that action mapping isn’t a framework that lets Instructional Designers design a digital learning course, it is a far broader framework which can, however, let Instructional Designers design activities in their courses that will help learners change habits or learn complex skills.
The main goal of action mapping is to let the L&D team of an organization design activities which increase the absorption and retention of knowledge be it in any training format, including digital learning courses. … Action mapping can motivate learners."
"Summary: There have been a number of frameworks, learning methodologies and instructional strategies that have been developed by experts in the L&D field in the past decades, with only a few surviving the test of time and remaining relevant.
One such framework/methodology that supports every type of Instructional Design is action mapping."
