Here's what learners had to say about this course

Simulated Projects

At Acuity Institute, we recognize that not every individual has the opportunity to complete an actual project while completing training; therefore, we have created real world simulated projects that takes students from the beginning to the end of a problem and solution using the methodology trained in the course. The simulated project helps to build the student’s understanding of the concepts taught in training and provides practical application of the tools and methodology. Students complete the course better prepared to apply what they have learned in the real world.

The simulation is based on a hypothetical company that faces many of the same problems companies are dealing with today. Students complete challenging exercises and tollgate weviews which build on previously learned tools and concepts taught in training. When complete, students have a significant perspective on what true business improvement means and a tangible “project story” that they can utilize throughout their process improvement journey.

There is no comparison for these simulations in the marketplace today. No other provider offers a more comprehensive project simulation such as ours which includes numerous project deliverables, challenging analysis, and project tollgate reviews.


For many of Acuity’s courses, we have assembled a Toolkit, which contains a complete, user-friendly set of the templates included in the course. The toolkit assists practitioners in keeping focused on their project work and not creating “templates”. For ease of use, the templates can be downloaded directly to your computer and are yours to keep and utilize in future projects. The templates have been developed in common formats (MS Word, MS Excel or MS PowerPoint).
