Participants commit to a series of 8 hour days of intense face-to-face Accelerated learning. The training is practical, precise with no corners cut. Don’t expect an easy ride, you are there to learn and learn you will. We offer action-oriented, interactive courses, packed with examples, case studies and compelling best practices as part of the learning experience.

This course is designed to give participants the level of knowledge, skills and attitude to make a real difference at their workplace.

Our typical training class includes a mix of international participants from a wide variety of industries who bring their experiences to the classroom for in-depth and stimulating learning sessions with fellow participants and instructor’s, so you will take a collaborative approach to the subject matter.

Many of today’s leading organizations and educational institutions are benefiting from the power of Accelerated Learning. Game Change has pioneered and delivered this teaching and learning method for Lean Six Sigma face-to-face training.

What makes Accelerated Learning so effective is that it’s based on the way we all naturally learn. People learn best in context. Facts and skills learned in isolation are hard to absorb and quick to evaporate. The best learning comes from doing the work itself in a continual process of “real-world” immersion, feedback, reflection, evaluation and re-immersion.

Gain insight from world-class Master Black Belt Instructor’s and points of view from people who have faced the real world scenarios in managing the change resistance and barriers to implementation. Expert’s who practice what they preach and believe in their ability to demonstrate the “How” as well as the “What” to do, including compelling best practices and benchmarking opportunities as part of the learning experience.

Case studies and group tutorials conducted during the classroom sessions are designed to ensure you gain a practical understanding of systematically selecting and applying appropriate methods and tools. The learning outcomes are individually assessed through the final exam on the on the last day of the course.
