Back to the Future of Training and Education: Why We Should Listen to Millennials

271824_l_srgb_s_glSMALLER.jpgAs a former professor from a family of educators, I’m encouraged to see Millennial-inspired discussions around critical human factors in the workplace. If innovation is the key to business growth, it’s important to recognize that people innovate. Ambitious, inspired, socially connected people innovate. And, yes, well-trained people innovate.

Thank you, Millennials, for reminding us all about the training basics: who, what, where, why, when, how. Like Boomers and Gen Xers before you, you want to be trained:

  • By people, or with materials, you respect
  • On relevant topics and practices that fit clearly with what you do and need
  • In classrooms or online – whatever works best
  • With a clear understanding of the goals, objectives, and value
  • At just the right time
  • As facilitated, self-paced, or  blended training – whatever works best

A profile of technology innovator Robert Bosch and its successful partnership with SAP Education highlights many of these points.

Expertise is the key to innovation

As an innovator, Bosch considers the expertise of its workforce as a critical success factor. It’s no surprise, then, that the looked to SAP Education to help:

  • Deliver training that matched the level of professionalism in place across the company
  • Build relevant knowledge and skills that fit into its unique business processes
  • Ensure user acceptance and knowledge retention through a balanced mixed of theory and practice
  • Design and manage company-specific qualifications for various levels of expertise

Partnering with SAP Education, Bosch implemented a successful program for developing professional-level, SAP software-specific skills that the company expects will “ensure its solutions continue to define the cutting edge of industry innovation.”

Millennials will love working at Robert Bosch.

      Would SAP Education listen to my issues about SAP CRM certification if I ask a Millennial to do so 😈 ?
