  9. 9. In-House Training Project Management for Results 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 American Strategic Management Institute will create an intimate train- ing 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 American Stra- tegic Management 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 proj- ects 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 American Strategic Management Institute also has the ability to accommodate organizational-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 Measurement Project Management Lean Six Sigma Workforce Management Budgeting and Forecasting Contracting Performance Reporting Program Evaluation Administrative Management Change Management Balanced Scorecard For more information about in-house training options available to you, please contact Mark Bryan at 703-894-04920 x 225 or email him at Page 9

In-house training provides a customized, cost-effective vehicle for educating your staff with a hands-on forum facilitating both team building and project planning. Our in-house training programs are focused on performance measurement, strategic communications, process improvement, strategic planning and change management.
