We begin with an understanding of our client’s unique environments, challenges, and transformational goals. Next, we provide a customized learning and performance solution that targets current needs, with an eye towards future.

Our clients include numerous federal agencies, both defense and civilian, as well as commercial clients both large and small.

Why We Are Different
Evolutionary Content Development™ methodology
LSI’s rapid execution methodology was created to address the unique training needs of Agile-based software development projects. It aligns with the product/project development lifecycle, producing as-needed training objects coinciding with each release phase. At project completion, the ECD methodology culminates in a comprehensive, integrated, and fully-featured curriculum package. ECD has benefits even beyond workforce training. We use the rapid prototyping features of ECD to enable stakeholders to see how the overarching product/project is evolving and helps our customers get essential early feedback to validate the workflow, use cases, usability, and system functionality. Using ECD helps our customers avoid costly rework and schedule delays.
LSI’s ECD methodology provides the dual benefit of just-in-time training with the project visualization needed to test the requirements/workflow against stakeholder expectations – culminating in a fully-featured, integrated curriculum at project completion.
Training as a Service (TaaS)™ model
LSI’s managed services model for training, Training as a Service (TaaS)™, addresses our clients’ needs for greater efficiency and minimized duplication of effort both within and across training projects. LSI maps the ADDIE training model against the PMBOK lifecycle to identify tasks and functions that are candidates for use across multiple training initiatives such as standard operating procedures, learner profiles, stakeholder assessments, style guides, branding, 508-compliant templates, graphic libraries, facility or software requirements, courseware hosting, scheduling and registration, feedback gathering tools, lessons learned, and more. Through our TaaS model, LSI owns, delivers, and manages the training lifecycle so that our clients can benefit from a cost effective, low risk, high-quality training program foundation rooted in industry-leading instructional design with minimal up-front investment. We meet our clients’ training needs on-demand, by quickly scaling up and down to meet their individualized requirements within a sound and standardized framework.
'Be the Brand' Program
At LSI, we value our people, the power of collaboration, being customer-focused, high quality and being the best at what we do! These values are shared by our entire team and reinforced from recruitment through professional development and emphasized in every touchpoint of the customer experience. ‘Be the Brand’ sessions are conducted quarterly to walk through the Customer Experience of every phase of the project lifecycle to identify opportunities for our employees to put our values to action to enhance customer satisfaction. Our values define who we are, guide our work, and enhance client satisfaction.
LSI Gives Back
SUPPORTING MILITARY AND VETERANS WHO PROVIDE DISASTER RELIEF
As a Veteran Owned Small Business, LSI keenly understands the service and sacrifice made by our veterans and first responders. In 2017, extreme weather and multiple hurricanes caused devastation in the gulf states as well as in US territories. Many service members and their families experienced the loss of power, food, shelter and even lives during this catastrophic storm. Though some things can never be replaced, LSI quickly mobilized to initiate a campaign to collect funds for relief efforts of organizations such as Team Rubicon, Army Emergency Relief, and Coast Guard Foundation. Through our employees’ campaigns, sponsored donations, and a corporate matching program, we raised more than $20,000.
When LSI’s founder saw the positive and life-changing impact sailing had on his dyslexic son, he knew sailing could be used to help other children with learning differences. Since 1985 LSI has supported Brendan Sailing summer camps. Brendan uses individually tailored experiential instruction in sailing to provide a foundation for success and building pathways for self-confidence and personal growth in children with learning differences. LSI ensures that no child is turned away through it’s ongoing scholarship support.
LSI believes in the power of compassionate care at the end of life through a tailored approach to medical, emotional and spiritual support for the terminally ill. For decades, our company has contributed to Hospice activities by participating in and sponsoring the Hospice Cup. This event is the largest fundraising regatta in the United States with proceeds providing hospice and palliative care to those in need regardless of their ability to pay.
