Improve Your SAP User Adoption
With an ever-changing world and workforce, training your staff on their latest SAP software implementation is a must for the success of any organization.
Whether you use SAP for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Human Resources (HR), Analytics, Supply Chain, or Finance – do you know if your employees are using SAP efficiently and effectively to overcome challenges and increase growth?
When it comes to effectively planning for SAP training or any other new software implementation, the management team and the learning and development department need to work together to ensure that the true benefit is clear to employees.

- Integrating latest SAP leading software components versions (e.g. SAP ERP 6.0, SAP S/4HANA 1809) into existing training

Developing Role Specific Training Content
To ensure that you get the most relevant and engaging training experience, we develop customized content that tailors the message to meet your business. The content will have your company or industry specific, real life scenarios and examples. This can include your specific processes, products and terminology. Once your plan of action is finalized, we can begin the development of your custom content.
Custom content will depend on your analysis and address your specific learners needs:
- What specifics do they need to know in order to bridge their SAP knowledge or skills gaps?
- How will you build role specific training content that will skew from person to person or department to department so that it is not redundant or irrelevant?
- What is going to be the best way to relay this training material?
- Are you going to have a series of in-class learning events supported by online training thereafter, or is this going to be a pure eLearning project?
Building out content that engages your learners will be dependent on how applicable the content is to your employee. Using real-life situations is a great way for employees to see how SAP will impact their regular day to day.
Also, by creating customized skill check development activities, we ensure the participants are engaged and can relate to the material. This ensures the further success of the program.
Although SAP can be applied industry-wide, your training content needs to relevant to the employee and their position. Sharing a one-hour module on generic applications will not prove beneficial to the training program. Presented with generic information, learners often do not understand the application or the value and may even start to lose interest. The more specific you can be, the higher your adoption rates will be.

Continued Post Training Support
Effective SAP training is not a one and done endeavor.
When customizing your SAP training there should be a series of post training event assets to coach and support your teams, such as how-to-videos or tutorials. They can also include reference guides or topic-based articles hosted on your learning management system (LMS). Following up on the training event is a key part to adoption and a good way to reinforce the importance of SAP as a tool for the organization to your employees.
It is also a great way to support management who may have repeat questions from teams, allowing them to direct them to the right content.
Following your training session, you should run further testing to gauge the competency level of those who participated. This ensure they have learned from the experience and retained the information provided. You should also consider tracking and further evaluation of these results to identify any shortcomings or knowledge gaps. This allows you to address any potential problems before these become a larger issue.
