  • Education is the most important and widely recognized success factor because user understanding and buy-in are essential. This requires a critical amount of knowledge to be shared from executives to the end users before the implementation begins, during the implementation, and post implementation assessments.
  • Product and Process TrainingWhen building content, we look at our solutions and functionality while tapping into industry research for best practices. Our content covers the systems and tools while teaching the users how to use their solution optimally. There are several types of training available to our customers that span the life of the implementation cycle and go beyond to continue associates education.Business User CertificationWe offer Certificates of Completion and Role Based Certification. Our role based educational offerings maximize skills to improve productivity and profitability. JDA Certification progresses the students through a standard methodology that moves them through from essential and foundational knowledge to a more strategic and broad-based understanding of the businessStudents start with knowledge and understanding of how the system functionality works and key tasks required to complete job responsibilitiesBuilding upon that is the application and analysis of existing information and business opportunities to become the next stage of learningThe final, and most advanced stage of learning comes through the strategic, evaluation of impacts to the business and provides the foundation that can be the springboard to leading a team or organizationThe value of this methodology is to provide a consistent, valid, measurable roadmapCourseware and Customization ServicesCustomers can purchase our JDALearn training materials. This courseware can be used as a starting point for customer’s to create their own customized training material or our JDA Education Services experts can customize the training materials. Our base training includes successful practices and business process, but customer’s may have education objectives that fall outside those standard practices and processes. JDA can collaborate with our customers to develop content and incorporate custom objectives into the standard training. This gives our customers a training program that completely aligns with their organization’s distinctive processes and unique business requirements.Many JDA customers have found our customization services to be the most cost-effective way to create their process-based solution training. Since our customers own the courseware, they control the return on investment. The materials can be repurposed for go-live, new hire, and refresher training and can be distributed throughout the organization as appropriate.User Adoption ServicesConsists of services that prepares teams for training or reengages them in education to accomplish corporate goals. In order for an implementation to be successful, people have to believe in the processes, tools, and their own abilities.We can provide goal and role profiles to assess what users know and what they need to know to improve abilities to see profound business changes.We can work with customers on education planning to provide a holistic enterprise view of the training plan. This ensures that a strategic approach is taken throughout the entire education process.We can do performance measurements to assess how the system is being used and suggest areas for improvement. We can provide ongoing user assessments to determine areas that need improvement and work with the customers to create a training plan that address those areas.
  • The JDA Enterprise Methodology (JEM) is a a uniform, best-practice method to implement all JDA software projects. The method, used globally by all JDA Services Associates, consists of 6 implementation phases followed by one post go-live phase. Education Services offers end-to-end training that corresponds to implementation milestones. This includes solution overview, project team, user acceptance, and customized business user training with courseware for on-going training needs. This comprehensive end-to-end education plan results in valuable contributors throughout the project life cycle.Training is a critical element to the implementation budget. You need to make sure that users are properly trained and they do not begin to work outside of the system.
