OpusWorks Institute Master Black Belt, Instructor and Mentor
An expert in the application of Lean, Six Sigma, Design Thinking, and Agile concepts to help organizations improve performance while building capability; meet Ted Revilock, MBB with the OpusWorks Institute.
As a Green and Black Belt blended learning instructor, Ted admires the quality of the OpusWorks e-Learning modules and pushes hard for his students to complete their assigned e-module pre-work, on-time, before class to maximize the blended learning experience. Ted is looking forward to the latest release of updated modules that are more bite-size, tightly scripted, and streamlined as part of OpusWorks own continuous improvement activities.
Regarding the Institute’s always improving virtual blended learning class materials, Ted praises their rigor, structure, and the built-in flexibility for him to share personal experiences that increase learning impact. Ted acknowledges the trend to deemphasize statistics, particularly at the Green Belt level, and affirms the quest for content to be as relevant and practical as possible. To assure that knowledge gained is effectively applied, Ted believes that confidence, performance, and value are greater when clients engage their OpusWorks expert to mentor their students through their critically important first projects.
Ted’s top tips for instructors who embrace the OpusWorks approach and materials:
- Recognize that despite your best efforts, many students will still not be prepared for class. To promote engagement, be ready with trigger questions and push yourself to call on people randomly.
- Don’t rush! Take time to understand the class flow. Practice! There is more time than you think and every word on the slide does not have to be said as students are reading along in the virtual setting. Get to the point.
Ted’s top tips for deployment leaders:
- Prioritize sending the right students to class, pave the way for them to complete class assignments on time, hold them accountable, and be sure they go to class with a well-defined project.
- Increase your training ROI from OpusWorks by also leveraging their deployment, program management and mentoring services.
