We are growing the Global Consultant Network for Rapid Learning Cycles with the intention to provide broad international support for companies adopting the framework.
The most successful candidates will be those who already have deep experience in innovation / product development consulting or deep experience with the Rapid Learning Cycles framework within one company.
In all cases, the individual or firm must commit to adopting our methods and materials for supporting Rapid Learning Cycles programs, without blending with other forms of Agile or other innovation management methods.
