As an instructional designer in academia, the design process tends to include numerous levels of permissions, allowances, and then revisions. Sometimes the need for permissions can seem to be a hindrance to the progress, regardless of the priority, need, and impact of the impending design. This design case discusses the struggle of managing individual and organizational expectations and how important this activity can impact the design process. The case presents one view of a design project where strategic objectives need to be met even with a reduced timeline. The case also shows how relying on individual enthusiasm in the absence of inter- and intrapersonal skills and a complete needs analysis can create different outcomes for all involved.
