RealityPlus™ Courses Win Industry Award and Recognition

Learning Tree received the "Outstanding Human Performance Intervention" award from the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI).

Learning Tree received this award in recognition of developing and introducing RealityPlus™, a curriculum of management education courses based on the principles of performance-based learning. Specifically, Learning Tree received the award for the company’s development of Course 315: Identifying and Managing User Requirements, which teaches attendees how to write user requirements documents and then manage those documents throughout the lifecycle of a project.

Learning Tree teamed with Darryl L. Sink & Associates, Inc. to design and develop RealityPlus. In RealityPlus courses, participants are immersed in simulated, real-world scenarios where they learn and practice in a hands-on, dynamic media-rich environment. Authenticity is the key to this new training approach.

Under the guidance of expert facilitators, the learner makes decisions and takes actions based on information that is presented in a way they would encounter information on the job. These experiences reflect the challenges, stimulus, and expectations of the contemporary workplace through interactive video scenarios, computer simulated environments, real-time data acquisition and analysis, and many collaborative activities. Post-course evaluations show this approach significantly increases participant satisfaction, participant learning, and on-the-job application of new knowledge and skills.

Learning Tree’s first set of RealityPlus titles includes Project Management Skills for Success, Project Leadership: Building High-Performance Teams, Developing User Requirements, Project Scheduling and Budgeting, Project Quality Management, Project Risk Management, Managing Complex Projects, User System Requirements for Successful Software Development, Project Management for Software Development, Software Configuration Management, Assertiveness Skills, Communication Skills, Influence Skills, and Negotiation Skills.
