3 Effective Strategies for Training Employees with SAP

Effectively implementing any SAP ERP system needs end-user training, and the success of these systems relies on the way it has been used by actual users along with end-user cooperation. Thus, end-users are to be trained properly for completely utilizing the practicality of the SAP ERP system, to save time, reduce cost, and enhance the process. Here are some techniques to train SAP users for them to work effectively:

Self-Paced Training

Simulation-based teaching

To improve training programs, form a learning environment for all the applications (SAP and non-SAP) using a tool based on simulation, SAP tutor. You can use a watch-try-do method to make the program more engaging and effective. Here, the learner will observe the process or steps involved that he needs to learn.  He will study the ERP program process consisting of its applications and benefits.

In simpler words, the task is described, in the trial phase, the end-users are called to practice, and in the end, they do actual process. They use all they have learned and perform the task on their own. They can even check the process in case they feel stuck somewhere.   Such programs are cost-effective and allow the learner to access their course from any place. 

Instructor-led Training

Classroom Training

This is a basic, yet most effective form of training because the trainer is physically present over these. The instructor makes it easier to complete the session in a restricted time period. In such training types, the use of media is restricted and only charts, pictures, or presentations are used, which do not interpret the information effectively to the student. If there is any requirement to change the subject, the teacher needs to be changed as well.

On-Job Training

On-job training means learning while performing. Here the learner gains through their experience and learning. It even makes sure that learners are serious about the program.

Training programs can help properly utilize or get the most value from the SAP ERP system. This can help the organization to make long-term value, lessen the support and costs of training, improve productivity, etc.
