Acceleration Workshops

Acceleration Workshops are Learning Tree's uniquely capable approach to rapidly moving an organization's projects forward and successfully implement performance and process improvements. They are used to quickly isolate and address impediments within critical programs that are negatively impacting the cost, schedule, performance or customer satisfaction.

Acceleration Workshops, multi-day sessions facilitated at the client's preferred location, are useful for project management, cyber security, process transformation (such as ITIL or Agile/Scrum), or technology deployments (like SharePoint).

Why Acceleration Workshops?

Acceleration Workshops, led by one or more Learning Tree Expert Advisors, provide intact project teams the skills to assess and implement the relevant project disciplines, processes, and artifacts required to effectively launch or recover major initiatives. Acceleration Workshops are also used to achieve rapid and successful implementation of process and organizational improvements.

Acceleration Workshops offer the following benefits:

  • Achieve rapid and successful completion of projects
  • Acceleration in the delivery of business initiatives, technology deployments and customer-facing programs
  • Development of actual project artifacts
  • Successful implementation of technical and business processes
  • On-the-job coaching of the required competencies to deliver improved performance
  • Improved line-of-sight across project portfolio for senior stakeholders

Case Studies

Challenge:
Major Project Activation

A large healthcare provider was struggling with the complex and multi-faceted efforts of opening a major medical center. The ‘Activation’ phase follows the general construction and is a vital phase to ensure the successful launch of a healthcare facility — hiring people, implementing equipment and technology, and establishing all operational processes to provide effective patient care. These large complex projects — which in many cases exceed $1 billion in budget — require the collective collaboration from all departments of the healthcare facility.

Result:
Custom Acceleration Workshops

A custom series of Acceleration Workshops were developed by Learning Tree to immediately assess and implement the relevant project management disciplines, processes, and artifacts required to effectively launch and/or recover these major initiatives. Workshops offer the following benefits:

  • Development of actual project artifacts - BRD/URD, WBS,
  • Milestone Schedule, Risk Register, Acquisition Strategy,
  • Metrics Dashboard for effective Monitor and Control
  • On-the-job coaching of the required competencies to deliver improved performance
  • Established formalized project governance
  • Improved line-of-sight across project portfolio for senior stakeholders

In one project alone, a savings of $3 million in contract costs were realized.
