The Dynamics Partner Academy will be linked programmatically to the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) Measure and track the number and type of certifications per partner. Number of certifications will determine each partner’s programmatic tier within MPN and the associated benefits.
With the academy, Microsoft offers a diverse range of learning products – including instructor-led training, on-demand training, certification, sales accreditation, and skills assessments – to serve the needs of partners worldwide. Through world-class training we provide the tools to help you realize your potential.
The South African Microsoft Partner Development Centre (PDC) is based on globally practiced and sanctioned methodologies and over 60 tool sets. Facilitated by a local team who’s combine experience, entrepreneurship and solid business acumen has set new standards in the Africa IT industry, the PDC provides the definitive framework for the Dynamics business community leaders.
The unique combination of interactive workshops and on-site, tailored mentoring sessions focus on the disciplines of business management, sales, marketing and project management. The PDC is not about extraordinary ideas, extraordinarily executed by extraordinary people. It is about common sense executed by normal people but EXECUTED.
“In 2009 we selected Blue Pencil to represent the PDC and DPA in South Africa, Africa and selected Middle East countries. Their knowledge of the Partner Channel, Business Strategy and Marketing as well as the fact that they have demonstrated their ability to deliver on strategic initiatives with Microsoft, has been some of the key consideration in their selection. We are delighted to have them on board again.”
