This article presents a professional development action plan or framework for instructional designers (IDs) working as external consultants for corporate companies. It also describes justifications why such an action plan is necessary for these professionals. The framework aims to help practising instructional designers to continuously and proactively learn about new trends, approaches, technologies and theories in the field of instructional design. Instructional designers must be well-equipped with current knowledge, skills and attitudes to ensure that their instructional materials help employees to improve their performance and stay employable as long as possible within a given shorter period of time and limited resources.
