Achieve High Velocity Innovation
The Rapid Learning Cycles Program Manager Certification Workshop
How to get your company’s best ideas to market faster with the
Rapid Learning Cycles framework.
Note: Due to COVID-19, all public workshops for March, April and May have been postponed.
Once we are able to travel again, we will be visiting these cities first:
Seattle, WA (USA) - Minneapolis, MN (USA) - Amsterdam, Netherlands - Stockholm, Sweden
Auckland and other locations, New Zealand - York, UK
We were already experiencing increased demand for our workshops, so future sessions in other cities will be scheduled when we have enough on the waiting list for a class that's 50% full.
Waiting List members receive other benefits, such as the ability to schedule RLC Overview Presentations for your team, join online learning experiences and get pre-access to some of the workshop materials.
A Transformational Experience for
Product Development Leaders
Our participants tell us:
They get immediate value from the workshops, with many of them starting Rapid Learning Cycles within 30 days.
Within three months, they see better decision-making, stronger engagement with sponsors and more predictable schedules.
Within six months, they begin to see Rapid Learning Cycles spread from project to project as others want to realize the same great results.
Join a Select Group!
We’ll accept only 24 people per workshop with a cap on the number from any one company in each 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.
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 to demonstrate how to help teams complete each step successfully — so their teams at home will be set up for success with the Rapid Learning Cycles framework.
In 2020, we’ll offer workshops in at least twelve different locations in six countries. We may add additional dates and locations if classes sell out too early in a region. If you would like us to come to your area, and you have a business network you can leverage to find at least eight people in three companies, then we’ll find a way to get there.
Why Our Most Successful Organizations Now Require Rapid Learning Cycles Certification for Their Program Managers Instead of Agile or PMI Certifications
We have over six years of experience 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.
Traditional project management tools work well in the execution phases of product development, when uncertainty is low but cost-of-change is high. Agile works great in software and other areas where the cost-of-change is low. But for products with high uncertainty and high cost-of-change, late-found defects and long, slow loopbacks cause schedule delays, cost overruns and disappointing performance because these methods don’t address the root causes that lead to these problems.
Early product development is a time when a team will make decisions that will be expensive to change later, yet the teams don’t have the knowledge or information they need to make those decisions at the right time, with the right people.
Rapid Learning Cycles helps teams identify those decisions that will have high impact on the program’s success, and focus their attention on making these decisions with more visibility and less uncertainty. When these high-impact, high-unknown decisions get made with greater visibility and by the right people, they won’t have to be revisited later — so that the execution phases take less time, with much less risk of costly rework and delays. They get their ideas to market faster.
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.
Send a Team to Begin Seeing Results Right Away
Companies that sent teams of at least three people to their first Rapid Learning Cycles Program Manager Certification Workshop were able to make a lot more progress faster. They started their first pilot program sooner and launched more programs earlier.
Teams can support each other as they learn to use the key elements of the framework to get their ideas to market faster:
To support your team, we offer group discounts for people from one company who register at the same time,even if the group chooses to attend different workshops:
To register a group, just add the number of places you need in each workshop to a single order on our web site. Then send us a list with names and email addresses – we’ll take care of the rest.
Your Instructor: Katherine Radeka
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 leads this workshop, often with one or more Rapid Learning Cycles Certified® Coaches and Consultants to ensure that everyone receives real-time feedback and coaching.
After completing the workshop and a few other certification requirements, you will join the Rapid Learning Cycles® Professionals Community, a growing user group with special learning opportunities, regular update calls and resources to help you go deeper into the framework.
The Rapid Learning Cycles Program Manager Certification Workshop
The Rapid Learning Cycles Framework
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.
Inside the Learning Cycle and Real-Time Knowledge Capture
We’ll describe how 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 Kickoff Event and the Learning Cycles Plan
The workshop models a Kickoff Event for a moderately-sized team:
Learning Cycle and Integration Events — and Troubleshooting
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.
