Digital transformation is ushering in a new era of digitally enabled, customer-facing products, services, and experiences in an environment of rapid change and uncertainty.
To help people reach their career goals faster and to support organisations' digital transformation initiatives, IT leaders often leverage authorised Microsoft Learning Partners like Lumify Work (formerly Auldhouse and DDLS) for their unique capabilities, certified training staff and access to Microsoft Official Courseware (MOC).
To make sure your learning initiative has the most business impact, consider the top benefits provided by Learning Partners, as identified by IDC.
1. Microsoft Learning Partners provide customised end-to-end training solutions. Learning Partners are consultative. They offer a range of capabilities for building and executing an enterprise training initiative, including:
Identifying learning and business objectives. Learning Partners work with you to identify and focus the learning initiatives on your training requirements. They align their services to meet your business needs and then coordinate and deliver the resources that meet those objectives. Lumify Work offers consultations and support through our dedicated account managers and a customer experience team. They ensure that your requirements are met in a fast and effective manner.
Simplifying the learning initiative. Shifting the training burden to Learning Partners can be efficient. Our account managers, customer experience team and course advisors can work with your HR training or Learning & Development team to help align the curriculum, coordinate activities and manage the learning outcomes for your organisation.
2. Microsoft Learning Partners provide scale, flexibility, and speed to meet your skilling needs. Whether your IT group is big or small, you want a partner that can cope and adapt learning programs to your organisation's needs—and do it fast. In other words, you want a partner with scale, flexibility, and speed.
With these three qualities, a Learning Partner for Microsoft can help your organisation:
Move fast and stay focused. The ideal partner can set up on-target learning initiatives on short notice, provide all the necessary resources, and ensure programs remain on track.
Roll out global programs. If your organisation needs learning solutions across time zones, work with a Learning Partner that has the scale to deploy programs wherever and whenever you need them.
Adapt to business constraints. Your schedules, platforms and people can change. Learning Partners have the flexibility to adapt their deliverables to your business constraints.
Stay ahead of the tech. Authorised Microsoft Learning Partners like Lumify Work keep up with evolving technology and help you prepare for changing business requirements.
3. Microsoft Learning Partners provide value-added services to help your skills development program succeed. Learning Partners provide a variety of tools and approaches that are essential for supporting learners. These can include hands-on labs, a mix of self-paced and classroom training, custom content, role-based learning paths, mentoring and discussion groups. You can also leverage assessments before, during, and after the training. And get help with certification prep and exams if needed. For example, students can access Lumify Plus - your online learning pathway to extend knowledge beyond courses. You can access resources to help you practice what you learned and prepare for future classes, exams and certifications.
A Learning Partner can provide:
Customised learning programs. Learning Partners can use standard courses or paths for their enterprise customers or customise the content or flow to make the learning program relevant and applicable to the target learners. We offer flexible learning solutions. Courses delivered through AIICT offer self-paced and bootcamp-style programs.
Training delivery aligned to your requirements. Authorised Microsoft Learning Partners use a variety of delivery models and blended experiences to maximise the impact of instruction and knowledge retention. Our courses can be delivered through our Lumify Anywhere platform, helping you train according to your schedule and logistical needs (in person, virtual or hybrid).
Microsoft Learning Partners provide high-quality training content and delivery. Quality training programs make a difference in helping organisations meet their digital transformation goals.
In the IDC study, quality means:
Accurate, relevant content and overall training. A Learning Partner delivers training using Microsoft Official Courseware and can tailor courses to make the content more suitable for your teams. MOC is designed with the help of Microsoft product engineers and experienced consultants, so you know you’re getting accurate, up-to-date information.
Instructor quality. Microsoft Learning Partners have a rigorous vetting and onboarding process for their instructors, who are Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCTs). MCTs have hands-on experience with the technologies and know how to help students succeed. Vendors and professional bodies have continually recognised us as one of the best training providers in Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines. We are the partner of choice for Microsoft and other organisations like Google, AWS, Cisco, VMware, ITIL, Citrix, and EC-Council – quality assured!
Trusted certifications. Learners benefit from the validation that comes from industry-recognised certifications. Studying the certification content also keeps learners focused on the right skills, and the effort helps boost the success of the organisations’ learning initiatives. Through our Pearson VUE Online Testing, Lumify Work offers the reassurance of standardised, recognised industry certification. Our badges are issued through Credly.
