The dependence of companies on the education of their employees has positioned human resource development as a strategic asset and a core competitive factor. Instructional design serves a crucial role in optimizing the quality of training and education for sustainable employ-ee qualification. The fast pace of digital transformation demands a new and more agile ap-proach to instructional design, which requires cross-organizational collaboration and the adop-tion of new frameworks. In response, we propose the TeachOps model, which builds on the principles of DevOps used in software development. The TeachOps model is a new framework for instructional design that enables efficient and continuous HR development. We contribute to the scientific discourse by proposing a new framework that applies DevOps principles to instructional design. Furthermore, we provide practical guidance on how instructional design-ers can efficiently and continuously provide HR development.
