Our methodology combines four primary elements to improve your workforce performance:
Point of Performance Learning We size and position learning opportunities to align with your
acquisition mission activities. From our extensive inventory of
learning modules, we select and focus content to address your unique
workforce and mission needs. Utilizing hands-on workshops, we provide
participants opportunities to apply their learning to their own
acquisition challenges. For example, a team challenged with a source
selection will learn and practice how to evaluate proposals prior to
proposal receipt and will apply that learning immediately to the real
proposals received. This is a simple model of learn, practice, do. Acquisition Team Development Teams
often come together from different parts of an organization, with
different priorities and skill sets. Therefore opportunities to develop
communication, negotiation, and conflict management skills in addition

approach focuses on all members of the acquisition team because
