Anaplan Learning Paths

No ratings

We’ve outlined the path you need to take to go from beginner to expert – or anything in between! Start with a basic introduction to Anaplan through our Essentials lessons and work your way up to get more comfortable with the Anaplan platform. 

We’ve even built different paths depending on your role, so start by identifying which of these roles best describe you:

Business Owner
As a sponsor, you selected Anaplan to help solve a pain point/challenge. You are leading an Anaplan implementation and will be responsible for rolling out new processes and driving user adoption.

Model Builder

You are building and maintaining the Anaplan models that drive your business. Your primary goal is to design, build, and deliver a great experience for your users.

Anaplan User (i.e. business end users)

You are the end user for Anaplan models. You will be directly interacting with the models by viewing, editing or adding data, but you may not be heavily involved with the implementation of the Anaplan solution.

Based on your role, take the following recommended trainings to help ensure you have the foundations you need for successful implementation and use of Anaplan:
