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).
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.

These large complex projects — which in many cases exceed $1 billion in budget — require the collective collaboration from all departments of the healthcare facility.
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:
