The Linking Academia with Labor Market Workshop that was organized by ADEK and delivered by Winnovate-SAP Training and Development Institute gave me the opportunity to learn techniques to improve our academic program to the market needs by defer judgment, encourages wild ideas, build on the ideas of others, stay focus on the topic, be visual and go for quantifying the ideas. I gained a lot of value and insights from using YES/AND technique and not use NO/BUT technique. This workshop was very insightful and made absolute sense in terms of working together as academia and industry to enhance the academic courses. The coaching team did a great job providing actionable concepts in a way that encouraged instant application. I am thankful for having the opportunity to attend this workshop.
