We’re offering a new learning experience during Expert Training at Hub17: TechLab sessions. These 90-minute interactive sessions are built around hands-on exercises that are designed to make you think. They are great for people who learn best by doing, and for those who like to try new things. TechLab attendees won’t be just sitting back and absorbing information. Here are the sessions we have lined up for Hub17 attendees:

  • The Anaplan Way app. Learn how to manage Anaplan projects using the new Anaplan Way app. Customer Success Consultant, Elizabeth Schaffer, will show you how to set up a new project in the app, including updating lists and setting up the budget tracker. Learners will have the opportunity to practice the set-up and will also learn how to use the app to track project and budget status, and support UAT.
  • Dashboard design. Head of Customer Success Product Solutions, Guillaume Arnaud, will lead an exploration of Anaplan dashboards from a usability perspective. He will present basic usability concepts, and then learners will apply those concepts to dashboards with design flaws. Learners will also look at a business process and how a good dashboard supports that process.
  • Model sparsity. Wondering what sparsity is? You’re not alone. Anaplan’s Principal Business Partner, Mark Shemaria, will define sparsity, explain why it can be a problem, and show learners how to reduce sparsity in Anaplan models. You will also learn how to ensure that sparsity is avoided during model design.
  • Dynamic lists and Salesforce.com. Principal Business Partner Rob Marshall and Business Partner Yelena Keselman will provide best practices around imports from SFDC. They will demonstrate how to create a dynamic process that loads data from SFDC to the correct location in the hierarchy. The session will also cover how data query tools can help you determine if SFDC data should be screened or filtered before loading into the Anaplan platform.

To keep the learner-to-teacher ratio at a low 20:1, enrollment for TechLab is capped at 80 participants, and each 90-minute TechLab session will be offered four times. Participants will cycle through all four of the sessions over the course of the day. TechLab is available only to current users who have completed Anaplan course 102: Introduction to Model Building. All equipment will be provided—all you need to bring is a mind ready to learn.

Expert Training will be held on March 27 in San Francisco. To participate in TechLab, when building your Hub17 agenda, add Expert Training and select TechLab. See you in San Francisco on March 27–29. Learn more.
