Prepare to Lead Your Team to High Velocity Innovation

Join one of our Rapid Learning Cycles Certified® Instructors in these live, interactive sessions on the Rapid Learning Cycles framework (RLCf), as we guide you through a Virtual Kickoff Event experience, and give you the tools and skills to replicate the experience for your team.

You'll learn the framework, practice it in the sessions, test your knowledge of it, and be prepared to launch a pilot program to solidify your skills in a controlled environment before rolling it out to the rest of your organization.

When you get that training and support, you will master the RLCf faster, adapt it to your organizations’ specific environments faster, and start getting results faster.

As a result, your projects will run smoother through launch, your teams will make the most of the time and resources you have to produce a better product, and your product development leaders will see higher return on investment from your programs.

This accelerates your PDP from Idea to Launch — empowering you to make a difference faster.

Why Using Rapid Learning Cycles Leads to Confident Decisions

Justin White of Gallagher Group shares his experience of how the RLC framework helped their executives automatically align with the product development team, without having to ask questions.

"We learned a lot about the Rapid Learning Cycles process, and learned how to put it into practice at our company.

I think it's really a good tool for us to speed up the development process, to do things right in the first part of the process, but to gain time and to be more predictable in the later phases of development like engineering.

It has been a really good session for us and we are going to put it to practice in a project at BD and, I have high hopes to make that a success."


Wouter van Essen

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.
