  7. 7. IN-HOUSE TRAINING Bring this Program to Your Organization One of the more popular vehicles for accessing the Institute’s educational offerings is the delivery of on-site trainings and management facilitations. Bringing a training or facilitation in-house gives you the opportunity to customize a program that addresses your exact challenges and provides a more personal learning experience, while virtually eliminating travel expenses. Whether you require training for your department or for an organization-wide initiative, the advanced learning methods employed by The Performance Institute will create an intimate training atmosphere that maximizes knowledge transfer to enhance the talent within your organization. Customization We realize that not all obstacles can be overcome by applying an “off-the-shelf solution”. While many training providers will offer you some variation of their standard training, The Performance Institute’s subject matter experts will work with you and your team to examine your programs and determine your exact areas of need. The identification of real life examples will create a learning atmosphere that resonates with participants while at the same time providing immediate return on your training investment. Using interactive exercises that employ actual projects or scenarios from your organization, instructors can address specific challenges and align the curriculum of each session to your objectives. While the majority of on-site trainings are focused on smaller groups, The Performance Institute also has the ability to accommodate organiza- tional-wide training initiatives. Utilizing multiple instructors, The Institute has the capacity to deliver courses to groups of up to 300 participants per day. Areas of Expertise On-site delivery of single courses, certification programs and entire packages of specialized courses are available in the following areas: • Strategic Planning • Performance-Based Contracting • Performance Measurement • Performance Reporting • Project Management • Program Evaluation • Lean Six Sigma • Administrative Management • Workforce Management • Leadership and Change • Performance-Based Budgeting For more information about in-house training options available to you, please contact Blake Zach at 202-739-9548 or email him at Blake.Zach@PerformanceInstitute.org.
