Introducing the

Navigate

Academy

At last, there’s an online training program specifically designed for systems integrators and their technology partners.

Over the last decade, the audiovisual integration industry has seen monumental advances in technology and systems. With those advances come more difficult challenges when it comes to selling and managing multiple overlapping projects, which themselves have grown more complex and require greater coordination and collaboration among numerous entities.

Companies are struggling to align the disciplines of portfolio management (strategy), project management (effectiveness), process management (efficiency) and people management (performance).  The Navigate Academy addresses all of these disciplines based on proven best practices, bringing maturity and sustainability to your company, reducing the chaos, drama and redo with your business, ultimately increasing profits and morale.

What is the

Navigate

Academy?

The Academy is designed on discrete lesson plans presented at once a month. Each lesson plan brings a new theme – each containing a live webinar, an action item and quiz aligned to the lesson plan, plus a supporting podcast.  For those with a competitive streak, there’s also a way to accumulate points and rewards.

Live Webinar

The foundation of each lesson plan is the live 45-minute webinar. All webinars are hosted by Brad Malone. If you miss the live webinar – no problem! All our webinars are recorded and can be accessed by members on demand.

Points and Rewards

As you progress through each lesson plan, you earn points, and our program gives you rewards and recognition for your achievements.

Project Management Institute Certification Renewal

Each completed monthly lesson plan will be eligible to receive a Project Management Institute® Professional Development Unit (PDU) towards Project Management Professional® (PMP) certification renewal or an Education Unit towards PMP eligibiity requirements.

Action Item

Each lesson plan includes a homework assignment and a quiz, based on the webinar. The purpose of the action item is to help you put the ideas from the webinar into action. Learn by doing.

Podcasts

In our ten-minute podcasts, we explore the theme for each month, and learn from our peers. We talk with subject matter and industry experts, who share lessons and examples about their businesses.

AVIXA Certification Renewal

Each completed monthly lesson plan will be eligible to receive an AVIXA® Renewal Unit (RU) towards Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) recertification.

AVI-SPL on the Value of Navigate Academy

What difference do you see in your Project Managers that have gone through Navigate Academy? We see greater focus, obviously on the upfront project planning, risk management, communication, kickoff meetings, etc. Really setting the stage for a successful project early on. Really making sure that we’re properly planning well ahead of the game, so then it just comes down to execution. We really put a lot of focus on change management as well, and explaining that process.

why they are important

No data was found

I’ve had the privilege of working with and knowing Brad since I began with AVIXA in 2013. Over the years he’s been an instrumental part of helping our industry succeed as a partner to AVIXA and to hundreds of our members. You will learn more than you can imagine with him and perhaps the most important lesson being, in his own words, ‘hard work, courage, perseverance and a willingness to take personal responsibility triumphs’. Brad and his team are eminently suited to teach just these lessons

They are a catalyst for Systems Integrators to create efficiencies and help all levels of the organization grow and transform. We are excited that the Navigate Academy makes all the principles Brad Malone teaches more accessible to our members than ever.

Last three modules at

Navigate

Academy

L51: The Importance of Performance Management

If there is no objective measurement criteria or known path towards advancement then employees make up their own interpretation of the system, which can cause political drama where it’s not needed.

L50: Day-Week in the Life of a Mature Project Manager

L49: Recurring Revenue by the Numbers

Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) is income that a business expects to receive every single month – a predictable revenue stream, which can sustain a company through the ebbs and flows of its project-based, or non-recurring, revenue sources.
