Poliquin and Speed-strength

When Poliquin trains his athletes for speep-strength(power) does he use only olympic lifts, heavy weights, for exercises like squats, and plyometrics? Does he ever use anything like speed-squats with 50-60% of your 1RM? I think i read somewhere where Poliquin said if you attempt to move heavy weight fast, even if it doesn’t move fast, you will develop power. So he says as long as you attempt to move the weight fast thats all that matters??? Is this right?? Because alot of the programs i’ve seen of his just have heavy weight for strength and now exercises with 50-60% using compsentory acceleration. Anybody know anything about this?
