Welcome, AST Academy Aspen Class of 2019!
AST kicked off its 2019 AST Academy program with the Aspen class on Monday, July 15. A warm Team AST welcome to Joe G., TJ A., Humberto B., Sarah M., Mohita P., and Sridhar K.!
AST Academy provides an opportunity for individuals to participate in a focused training program to learn more about the industry, software, and client relationship dynamic in order to build a rewarding career and a foundation for lifelong leadership skills. During their first week as part of the team, our Aspen class participated in training sessions concentrated on internal operations, partner relationships, soft skills development, practice-specific education (ERP, EPM, Tech Services, Managed Services, CX), sales operations, change management, project management, AST solutions, and more! The team also had several opportunities for networking and team building throughout the week, including a morning of volunteering at the Northern Illinois Food Bank with Team AST colleagues.
In the coming weeks, the Aspen Class will dive deeper into practice and technical education, work closely with a seasoned mentor from his or her specific area of focus, and will soon join our teams on active client projects in order to demonstrate the knowledge gained during AST Academy. Within just weeks, the class will be fully assimilated into AST’s client projects as active and productive members of the teams.
Agile learning is at the forefront of talent development at AST and is promoted through AST Academy. The mission of AST Academy is to create a transformative learning experience for new and tenured AST employees, focused on developing deep business and technical abilities, as well as lifelong problem solving, communication, and leadership skills. Whether you’re a practice manager or a junior consultant, AST employees are technical experts in the most powerful, cutting edge, and transformational solutions. Training and certification are vital to AST’s Talent Development Strategy and key differentiators in the industry.
