The Elements of
Rapid Learning Cycles
Learn Why Rapid Learning Cycles Accelerate Innovation
We'll explain why we get repeatable results from the Rapid Learning Cycles framework to accelerate innovation. We'll show how the framework eliminates the root causes of program delays at their source.
See How the Elements of the Framework Fit Together
We'll define the Core Hypothesis, Key Decisions, Knowledge Gaps, Activities and Deliverables in a precise way that helps teams internalize the framework faster so that they start seeing early results sooner.
Get Quick Wins by Finding Key Decisions and Knowledge Gaps
Action Worksheets will guide you through a series of observations and experiments that can uncover hidden issues on your current programs, and help you eliminate those issues to make an immediate difference for your team.
Select, Structure and Build Support for Your First Pilot Program
We recommend that every organization begin using Rapid Learning Cycles on a pilot program. We'll explain why that's the best approach, and how to select, structure and build support for your own pilot program.
All the elements of the Rapid Learning Cycles framework are outlined in The Shortest Distance Between You and Your New Product. You may still be in exploration mode with these concepts and realize that you need more in-depth experience with the fundamental thinking behind RLCs in order to build momentum for a pilot.
You will gain valuable experience with examining a Core Hypothesis, identifying Key Decisions and Knowledge Gaps and getting an overview of a pilot program.
The Elements of RLC will help Innovation and R & D team members experiment with the concepts of RLCs to generate quick wins and momentum for a “clean test” pilot of the framework.
You may have learned about key concepts such as the Core Hypothesis, Key Decisions and Knowledge Gaps but had questions about how to incorporate them.
Perhaps you're concerned about how to integrate the Rapid Learning Cycles framework into your existing Phase Gates or current PDPs.
Or you may be attracted to the idea of the framework but not sure how well it works in practice.
The Elements class will help you to gain a deeper understanding of the core concepts, understand how to choose good experiments and identify next steps that will lead to successful implementation.

Your Instructor: Katherine Radeka
You’ll have the opportunity to learn directly from 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 narrates these videos, giving personal insights and anecdotes to bring the material to life.
You'll gain a deep understanding of each of the critical elements of the Rapid Learning Cycles framework, how they work together, and discover a new way of thinking about how to speed up product development.
We offer ongoing support to our Rapid Learning Cycles Certified® Professionals by phone, email, and through online forums to make sure that you never slow down or get stuck as you use the Rapid Learning Cycles framework for the first time. If you run into any difficulties using the ideas we’ve taught in the workshops, please contact us right away to make an appointment. Chances are, we’ve seen your challenge before, and we can help you overcome it. And if you've given it an honest try, reached out for help and it's still not working, we'll refund your registration fee.
