The “Business Process Transformation in Practice” scholarship program for students from Łódź universities recently wrapped up with a celebratory event. This program not only provided students with possibility to see how business services industry works but also equipped them with valuable, practical knowledge on Shared Service Centers, process efficiency tools, metrics, process and project management, and innovation implementation in future organizations.
Sponsored by the consulting firm Adaptive SAG, the scholarship was “Młodzi w Łodzi” initiative’s second part. The program concluded officially on September 29, 2023, and was attended by representatives from the Łódź City Council, adding an air of significance to the occasion.
The exclusive Adaptive course took place in a face-to-face format and was limited to the top 10 students selected through a precise internal recruitment process. These students were guided by 20 Adaptive experts from the SSC/GBS/BPO industry who led them through engaging exercises and workshops. The agenda was focused on diverse aspects such as industry fundamentals, project management methodologies and tools, process mapping, digitalization, automation, and process performance metrics.
“We are delighted to have joined the distinguished group of dozens of respected Polish and global companies and institutions that offered their time and expertise to young talents. This initiative has proven to be a bullseye, considering the growing investment potential and maturity of the modern business services sector in Łódź, which continues to be at the forefront of cities with the highest number of Shared Service Center employees in Poland.”, as emphasized by Anna Gajewska-Makuch.
To successfully complete the program and earn certification, students had to actively participate in classes and complete a substantial assignment related to the training or consulting domain. Following the program, students were invited to provide feedback on the course content and the trainers’ performance. “The resounding feedback from participants was overwhelmingly positive, giving a sense of pride and motivation among the organizers.” Agnieszka Pytel, HR Lead at Adaptive Group, shared her thoughts on this achievement.
A highlight of the event was the presentation of the two most outstanding final papers:
- Aleksandra Wosiecka – “Lean Culture – Applying Lean Tools in Practice”
- Julia Cyganowicz – “Business Process Automation – Benefits and Challenges”
These exceptional papers showcased the dedication and talent of the scholarship recipients. The event concluded on a high note and left participants with new knowledge and a sense of accomplishment, well-prepared for their future careers in the dynamic world of modern business services.
The “Business Process Transformation in Practice” scholarship program has truly opened doors to a promising future for these young talents, and we look forward to witnessing their continued success in the industry.
