This program is delivered in an interactive group setting with real world context provided by the participants. Workbooks are provided which will act as an orientation support tool during the course and a handy reference guide going forward. It is ideally suited for 8-10 people per course but can accommodate 12 where required. This has been shown to be an excellent foundation before leveraging internal training and development.

It is conducted over 4 half-days, usually once a week, but can be delivered in several configurations to meet differing client needs.
