Accelerated Learning methodologies were developed over 40 years ago and have been used effectively to speed learning in a wide variety of fields.  The same techniques that can be used to speed-up learning, can also be used to speed-up projects. This presentation gave an overview of accelerated learning concepts and how they can be applied to projects and project management.  It engaged the audience in a “high-impact”, 100% hands-on, fast-paced, accelerated project management simulation so they  experienced the concepts first hand.  The attendees participated in a risk analysis for an investment club.  It involved everyone and was very provoking.

The seminar is as effective for groups as small as 10 and as large as 250.  It gives participants a good understanding of the tools needed to design their projects for speed.  Through the unique instructional techniques used in the seminar, participants develop the knowledge and confidence to insure they are aware of how they can get their projects done fast, on budget, and meeting their customers requirements. 

Linda is on the lead trainer Cheetah Learning PMP Team.  She is certified to teach the Cheetah Accelerator course for the PMP and lives in New Jersey.  Linda came into project management after pursuing a career in education.  Linda has over 13 years experience in project management, which includes developing the Professional Services division for a start-up company as well as overseeing project managers and programmers throughout the country.  Linda has a Master's degree in education from Rhode Island College and is a member of the Project Management Institute.
