July Summer Learning Series: Free, Fun, For All!

Join Impetus Experts for “Zoom a Friend” Level 2 and Deep Dive Office Hours

For July, Impetus is bringing back our Anaplan “Zoom a Friend” office hours series from April and May. Learners of all levels are welcome! From hosting past office hours, we discovered that bringing together Anaplan learners from different backgrounds and achieving a-ha moments together is an incredibly valuable and rewarding experience for all.

Level 1 Certification

For learners new to Anaplan, begin by completing Anaplan’s Level 1 Model Building training. The online version of this course will take about 25-30 hours to complete. For independent learners, check out the Anaplan Independent Learner Free 90-Day Trial here.

Level 2 Certification

The next step in your learning journey is Anaplan’s Level 2 Model Building. This course is available on-demand from Anaplan and takes approximately 30-40 hours to complete. The training program includes over 40 micro-lessons (5-10 minutes in length).

To assist you with this effort, Impetus is making its Solution Architects and Master Anaplanners available for free office hours via Zoom. Based on feedback from previous office hours sessions, we have pre-selected a few topics to discuss in more detail (booleans, dynamic cell access, etc.), but we will continue to prioritize questions from the group during the sessions.

Office Hours Agenda:

  • 5 Minute Intro
  • Open Office Hours:
    • Note where you are on L2
    • Please be sure you’re comfortable sharing your screen
    • If you have any questions you’d like to send us beforehand, please send to enablement@impetuscg.com 

Deep Dive! (figuratively, not literally)

As you continue your learning journey, join us for 1-hour sessions to deep dive into the following topics and chat with other Anaplanners. We originally designed the content for those looking to become Master Anaplanners. However, we have learned from previous attendees that the material is valuable for Anaplanners at all levels. Please join us if any of the following topics are of interest to you:

  • Center of Excellence: What, Why, How? What do you need to know about a Center of Excellence? Why is it important? Who owns it? How is it governed? What are its responsibilities?
  • Model Governance: ALM and Data Maintenance What are some best practices for managing large sets of data and maintaining a healthy Development-Production environment (ALM).
  • Data Integration 101: Anaplan Connect and other tools What tools are available to automate the movement of data in and out of your models? What are the pre-requisites to set up Anaplan Connect?
  • Tips and Tricks for Solution Architects: Sparsity and Performance as it relates to Formula’s and User Access What are ways to improve performance and decrease sparsity as you build more complex models?

We look forward to seeing you in July!
