And now, no matter where you are in the world, we want you to keep learning even after DF18 is a well-cherished memory. To help you do that, we’re bringing you our recap of the top 5 Admin Careers sessions so you can continue your learning journey from the comfort of your laptop. Sit back, relax, and amp up your career development skills!
Navigate Your Salesforce Career
In an ever-changing landscape of skills, it’s easy just to copy what someone else did to be successful. But are someone else’s achievements really what you want? Everyone is always looking for a “How to” approach to accomplish a goal. Join us, and we’ll focus on a “Why to” approach to reach your goals.
Admins Are Critical Change Agents
Salesforce Admins live at the center of change within organizations. Whether automating processes or transitioning to Lightning Experience, change management skills are necessary for success. A little bit of change management wrapped in your projects ensure smooth sailing and create a better experience for your stakeholders, end users, and you. Learn change management techniques and skills that you can apply as soon as you depart the session. When you bring these techniques and skills to your organization, you’ll get more support and positive responses from your users.
Be An Admin Hero: Align Tactical Wishlists to Strategic Vision with V2MOM
Administrators and C-suite executives are united by a series of business objectives and goals to drive their company forward. However, more often than not, we see that management defines a top-down strategic vision, while administrators contend with an ongoing flow of bottom-up operational Salesforce requests with limited time, resources, and budget. In this session, you’ll learn a powerful framework that we use ourselves at Salesforce, called the V2MOM – Vision, Values, Methods, Obstacles, and Measures that enables you to identify and communicate clear alignment between Salesforce projects and your organization’s high-level business goals. Be an Admin Hero and take the V2MOM framework home to proactively drive value.
Essential Habits for New Salesforce Admins
Join us to start your Admin career on the right foot by developing essential habits. We’ll discuss how to learn, connect, and lead as a Salesforce Admin, with practical tips that you can take with you back to your company and Salesforce org.
Agile for Admins: Supercharge Your Delivery Experience
Salesforce Admins are tasked with working across multiple departments and ensuring they are communicating to stakeholders, collaborating with users, and providing regular updates to their platform. The Agile methodology is a particular approach to project management that is utilized to assist teams in responding to the unpredictability of constructing software using incremental, iterative work sequences. Learn how Agile organizes your workload, and boosts your development and delivery experience for all users.
