Conception and Implementation of Training for a new ALM Tool Chain

Challenge

A leading automotive supplier decided to replace its existing heterogeneously structured tool landscape, with a new consistent ALM tool chain. This new tool chain will better support Automotive SPICE® compliant working and reduce license and operating costs. Due to the dependency between projects, this switch to a new ALM tool chain, had to be implemented as a “Big Bang” migration. Consequently, over 1,000 systems users had to be trained in a short time.

Project Duration/Volume (employee months)

Training concept: about 6 months, involving 1 external FTE 

Training delivery: 4 trainers, about 200 training days

Solution

Method Park developed a training concept with role-specific courses to train the end users. The training was based on the defined development process: participants were trained within an example development project and experienced how to apply the new ALM tool chain in projects. Prepared training projects enabled efficient implementation of practical exercises. In a half-day basis training, Method Park trainers communicated basic concepts of the new ALM tool chain to users. Additionally, Method Park offered specialized one-day trainings for specific roles (requirements manager, test manager, etc.).
