openSAP is a great way to ensure continuing professional development. The “Massive Open Online Courses” (MOOC) platform helps me to keep pace with the rapidly developing world of information technology.

The reasons I have decided to use openSAP include:

  • It is presented by credible people either with a good academic background and/or work experience (often experts in their field of knowledge)
  • Course completion provides a certificate (in most cases) upon successful completion of the relevant course criteria
  • The subjects/topics are relevant and current
  • The courses look good on my resume (eg: linkedin)
  • The courses provide evidence for my CPD log (associations and professional bodies)

And best of all it is free for everyone!

The openSAP pages I am talking about can be found at:

I did mentioned CPD above which means Continuing Professional Development.


“Continuing professional development (CPD) or continuing professional education (CPE) is continuing education to maintain knowledge and skills”

One of the courses on the portal that I would recommend includes:

  • “Digital Transformation Across the Extended Supply Chain – In a Nutshell”

What I did enjoy about this course is that it had some interesting demos that helped to supplement the theory being explained.

Also having a Senior Vice President of Extended Supply Chain offer the course made it extremely credible.

Enjoy your day everyone!

    Sorry but this blog is just stating the obvious. What compelled you to write this? I’m confused… Do you believe many SCN members don’t know what openSAP is? If so then why not at least add a link to it? Or share what courses you took and whether you’d recommend them? Did adding those courses on LinkedIn help you to find employment or new clients? Will every member of the global community know what “CPD log” is?

    I can see that your previous blogs generated very little feedback, so this might be good time to reflect. When you chose to post another blog, think about the readers and what value it would add to the community.

    There was a good blog on SCN on how to write better blogs, you might want to take a look.

      Many thanks for the constructive feedback and the link to Tim’s better blog guide.

      It is nice of you to provide some honest feedback. This is one of the benefits of any community forum. It allows community members to help each other improve!
