Introduction to SAP Learning Services' Learning and Enablement Approach

If you're responsible for learning and enablement activities in your organization and want insights into planning and executing SAP learning and enablement projects, then this learning journey is for you.

Some roles are typical in an SAP enablement project. In this learning journey, we focus on one such role, which belongs to Grace, our enablement lead persona. We call this role enablement lead. Other names for this role are training manager, training lead, enablement project manager, or change and learning lead.

Roles of an SAP Learning and Enablement Project

As the enablement lead, Grace must know the tasks of the following individuals: Arun, the SAP enablement content developer; Tia, the trainer; Idris, the subject matter expert; and Kenneth, the enablement administrator. She also collaborates with Lian, the change lead. In the unit, Setting up an SAP Enablement Project Team, we describe in detail the enablement-project team members' tasks and responsibilities.

To understand why SAP learning and enablement are important for successful SAP implementation projects, play the following video.

To summarize the video:

  • Enablement covers all activities that help people learn and adopt new SAP systems and processes into their working life.
  • In this learning journey, we explore many interdependencies between enablement activities.
  • Remember that enablement must support continuous transformation, especially in today’s cloud world.

Enablement planning has the following components:

  • Enablement strategy

We also have organizational change management in both planning and execution.
