2. Case Study means there is a specific example that correlates to your industry. The case study is used as a thread to tie all the concepts, frameworks, and methodologies together. The case study bring theory to life.

3. Practical Application means there are hands-on tools and exercises used during the course. Most are completed with a team and on rare occasion they are done alone. In either case, practical application replicates real world application in the classroom to solidify learning concepts. It allows students to make an immediate connection to their daily life.

4. Simulation Value Added 616 uses simulation-based training as the common thread tying together the concepts and methodologies presented in the curricula. It is a continuously evolving labor of love. Simulations are designed to replicate real scenarios (or customized to the language of your organization). They allow students to practice each tool immediately after learning, thus reinforcing learning with a hands-on experience. Simulations afford students a unique opportunity to complete the equivalent of a kaizen-level project with the encouragement and assistance of skilled facilitators in a safe environment. Additionally, simulations reinforce soft skills as students must work in teams while facilitators expertly engage students during practical exercises (each student will lead and present at least one tool, and brief a portion of the final DMAIC tollgate).

5. Role-Playing Exercises are specifically designed for our “soft” or “people” skills courses. These scenarios allow students to act in certain roles and explain how/why they would react based on the situation. Studies continually highlight the significance of role-playing scenarios when students take them seriously, they are well-written, and based on reality. All of which we accomplish in the classroom.
All classes are taught both virtual and in-person. Value Added 616 has received tremendous feedback for training in both environments. We value honest and constructive feedback and work very hard to continually improve our courses and simulation. Value Added 616 is very proud of our amazing curricula and instruction and are happy to accommodate in any capacity to satisfy your unique requirements.

Professional Development and Continuing Education Units

The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized measure of participation in an approved non-credit continuing education program. One Continuing Education Unit (1.0) is defined as: Ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction.

The Professional Development Unit (PDU) was established by PMI as the educational metric for project management educational activities. One PDU is earned for each contact hour spent in structured learning, which is relevant to project management. For conversion purposes, one (1) CEU equates to 10 PDUs.

LSSGB is recognized as (40) PDUs: technical (21), leadership (9), and strategic (10)
LSSBB is recognized as (94) PDUs: technical (50), leadership (17), and strategic (24)
