  Abinash Nayak Abinash Nayak joined an Anaplan training program while getting his MBA at Carlson School of Management in MN. Along with a love of the platform, Abinash loved that Anaplan wants to give back to new learners. He saw that Anaplan employees were eager to collaborate with the internship group. The collaboration experience instilled the value of why collaboration is important to a team and a company. And with their support, Abinash became a Certified Model Builder in only four weeks! Abinash’s future plans include tech, engineering management, and Anaplan. He’s searching for the perfect place to use his new skills. Ryan Rist Ryan was introduced to Anaplan through his previous employer, Prudential Financial. After taking Level 1 on-site at the Anaplan NY office, Ryan knew he’d “caught the Anaplan bug” and needed to learn more. Ryan was eager to be part of a group learning the Anaplan platform; he knew that he and his fellow learners could lean on one another if they struggled with formulas and modules along the way.   Having now achieved his Model Builder Certification, Ryan is now on the path to becoming a Master Anaplanner. Ryan uses his Anaplan skills in his senior Analyst role at Goldman Sachs.     Anna Koerber For Anna, it was probably fated that she dip her toes into the Anaplan platform. Her mother, an Account Executive at Anaplan, referred her to the Connected Planning Internship. While 2020 had some plans of its own, and the internship had to be postponed, Anna didn’t let this stop her. She quickly joined the Talent Builder Bootcamp to complete her training, becoming a Certified Model Builder. Like the internship she’d intended to join, Anna’s first full-time offer was also a victim of the changes of the year, but, again, Anna persevered. She applied for and was hired as a Sales Ops Analyst at Splunk. Though Splunk was looking for someone with at least 4 years of job experience (which new-grad Anna didn’t have), they saw the value in an applicant with the tenacity to complete her certification despite the challenges of the year. Anna’s next goal is to continue her training and work toward becoming a Master Anaplanner.

Our on-demand training can be done completely independently through our Talent Builder program. You can sign up for 90 days of access to the platform here. Anaplan was built to be something anyone can learn, so there are no prerequisites in terms of experience or education. All are welcome! That being said, there are skills that certainly make the training easier and faster. Some of these are Advanced/proficient Excel skills (our platform uses similar logic for formulas and functions) Background in business, especially business planning, financial planning, supply chain (our courses cover finance and supply chain use cases, so you’ll be a little more comfortable with the use cases) Experience with other planning applications or platforms  Who is eligible for the Talent Builder program? We accept all interested learners. How many hours/week can I expect to spend on training? This depends largely on your experience and how quickly you learn, but typically we see learners spending 6-8 hours/week on Level 1, about 11 hours total for The Anaplan Way, and 8-10 hours/week on Level 2. Are meetings mandatory? No. We suggest you attend as many office hours sessions as you can. Our goal is to help you be successful, and we understand that everyone’s schedules are complicated and full. We offer support between meetings in our forums, provide helpful articles and tips and can work with you if your availability changes during the program. What if I miss a deadline? We provide soft and hard deadlines for our learners. Soft deadlines lay out the lessons we recommend you do each week in order to finish the program on time. We know learners who stick close to this schedule are successful model builders. But we’re also not going to be too concerned if you’re behind on soft deadlines from time to time. Our hard deadlines are stricter. In order to best help you and the other learners in your cohort, everyone needs to be learning together. So if you fall behind and miss a hard deadline, we’ll help you to find the best learning path for your schedule. This could mean moving to a different group so you’re back on track, completing the remaining courses independently, or, occasionally, pausing and rejoining later when you have more time to focus.
