Project Propel Blog #2: Training

The DSU College of Business faculty are the best in the world

They came together for a two-week training, putting the students’ needs first

Gave up part of their summer vacation, to learn about SAP

Went through trainings on Big Data, ERPSim, Lumira, and Design Thinking

The faculty worked extremely hard, and pushed everyday

The faculty stayed focused but had fun along the way

The days were filled with new experiences, things the faculty had never done before

The faculty came in with open minds and were ready to explore

Week 1 was the technology side, while Week 2 was a new way of thinking

Everyone worked together in teams, making speeches and presenting

Big Data was on day 1 an Nancy Fessatidis gave us an awesome presentation

The face of big data is growing, and the world is always changing

We spent a lot of week one with Derick Lyle, on ERPSim and Lumira we worked

John Astill led us in analytics, creating our own apps was an extra perk

Ward and Kali took control, of training during week 2

Julian and I helped lead as well, which was really really cool

Design Thinking was extremely fun and made us think outside of the box

We tried to solve the problem, while being rushed by the clock

We came up with many prototypes, and tested for results

Empathy was the main thing we kept, in our minds and hearts

We all had an awesome time and learned so much SAP

The culmination event was designing curriculum implementation, by the faculty

The whole process was a success and we had many amazing results

A few teams stood out, and shined like shining stars

The faculty are ready, excited, and inspired

Shayla & Jeremi, are two new SAP interns that were hired

Overall everyone really enjoyed the experience and it was a great job well done

We want to personally thank everyone from SAP, who took time to visit us

The future is looking bright, around the corner classes start

The faculty have been trained and the students will be taught

This was a huge step as Project Propel continues to move forward

A special shout-out to Brian, Danny, Ann, & all of our big supporters

Again, it was an honor sharing in this experience

All of the faculty know, that on us they can depend

So now we will continue to push, and create opportunities for others

We want Project Propel to help so many students be successful
