They already see improvements in their teams' ability to learn, share their knowledge and focus on the most important decisions.
A Transformational Experience for
Product Development Leaders
The materials we give them to run the framework make it a great experience for team members — the first time.
Our participants tell us:
They get immediate value from the workshops, with many of them using the framework on a program within 30 days.
Empower your PD leaders to succeed with the Rapid Learning Cycles framework
the first time.
The Rapid Learning Cycles Program Manager Certification Workshop will prepare you to lead your first team through the Kickoff Event to establish their Learning Cycles Plan, coach them through their first learning cycles, help them capture their knowledge real-time and lead their first Learning Cycle and Integration Events.
Join a Select Group!
This two-day workshop models a Kickoff Event for a moderately-sized team, going "behind the scenes" to explain why the framework elements accelerate product development, and how to help teams complete each step successfully, so that their teams at home will be set up for success with the Rapid Learning Cycles framework.
We'll accept only 24 people per workshop with a maximum of eight people from any one company in any workshop, to ensure that there's lots of cross-fertilization across groups, and that teams start building relationships with other Rapid Learning Cycles Certified™ Professionals
In Fall 2017, we'll offer workshops in Portland (Oregon), Detroit, Amsterdam and Washington, DC. Our plans for Spring include San Diego, Boston, Auckland NZ and Minneapolis. We may add additional dates and locations if classes sell out too early in a region. Groups can purchase credits that allow team members to choose the workshop dates and location that work best for them.
The Rapid Learning Cycles Program Manager Certification Workshop
Inside the Learning Cycle and Real-Time Knowledge Capture
We'll describe the learning cycles work within the framework to build knowledge the team needs to make its most important decisions and that future teams can reuse and extend to accelerate their development.
The Rapid Learning Cycles Framework
The Kickoff Event and the Learning Cycles Plan
We'll give tips for how to prepare and facilitate your team's Learning Cycle and Integration Events. Then we'll share our best practices for how to recognize when a Rapid Learning Cycles program has run into trouble, and how to get it back on track quickly.
The workshop models a Kickoff Event for a moderately-sized team:
Learning Cycle and Integration Events, and Troubleshooting
We'll prepare you to introduce the Rapid Learning Cycles framework to your team and other stakeholders, and give you the inside information you need to succeed with the framework as a program leader.
Why Our Most Successful Customers Now Require Rapid Learning Cycles Certification for Their Program Managers Instead of Agile or PMI Certifications
We have over six years of experience with helping teams like yours succeed with the Rapid Learning Cycles framework, even when the team starts out lacking the scientific, technical, customer or market knowledge they need to build their product.
Other Product Development Process workshops like Scrum or Agile teach techniques that were designed for software, while Project Management classes teach methods that are better suited for building highways. Neither of these groups understand the value of building and capturing knowledge, or the importance of pulling learning forward to push decisions later.
We teach you the framework that hundreds of development teams use today to get their products to market faster in the most demanding areas of product development.
Wouter van Essen, Sonion
RLCI has shown how to pull together a combination of agile software management techniques within a phase gate development, with a process to follow, and made it easier to ask my organization to implement it. We have had two Kickoff events and the response has been very positive. The one thing I would change is having more people from my company attend.
Jason Anderson, Trimble Corporation
I was concerned that the R & D executives would not buy into this. But the simplicity and logic of the approach made this an easier sell. Almost everybody we sent to the training is involved in an RLC project or is about to be. I especially appreciated the ongoing support that has been available to my team after the workshop.
What Others Say About This Workshop
Vaas Conradie, Gallager
I had some doubts about sending all our Project Managers and whether they would learn how to use Rapid Learning Cycles better for their own projects. But I am sticking with the decision to send them all as it is another positive experience with Rapid Learning Cycles when they are applying it together with RLC enthusiasts from other companies and more attention to the thinking behind the framework. The best part of the class was the three baskets that help determine which elements of Rapid Learning Cycles drive success and therefore must be applied rigorously, and which ones can be left for the team to decide.
The class prepared us very well for explaining Rapid Learning Cycles to teams that will work with it and convincing stakeholders of the logic behind it. The workshop will give you the tools and insights that you need to judge and positively influence the quality of the plans of the teams that you guide. With that the learning on how to successfully apply Rapid Learning Cycles in your company will be accelerated.
You'll have the opportunity to work directly with Katherine Radeka, the author of The Shortest Distance Between You and Your New Product: How Innovators Use Rapid Learning Cycles to Get Their Best Ideas to Market Faster.
Katherine co-teaches this workshop with one or more Rapid Learning Cycles Certified™ Coaches and Consultants to ensure that everyone receives real-time feedback and coaching.
