Prompt Engineering and Generative AI for Professionals
ChatGPT is one of many Generative AI tools that are being integrated into the workplace of the 21st century. This course is designed to prepare you for success in the workplace by providing deep, hands-on knowledge of prompt engineering – the process of structuring text that can be interpreted and understood by a generative AI model – a critical skill being applied across almost all job functions in today’s workplace. This hands-on, project-abased course will enhance your ability to perform your job more efficiently and effectively while supporting your career growth.

Business Process Redesign
The pace of change in the business world brought on through rapid changes in technology and the globalization of the business landscape has accelerated to the point where initiatives capable of achieving performance improvements cannot keep up. Breakthrough performance gains are the only way to equal or exceed these changes. These performance gains can be achieved through the redesign of existing processes, which recognize the fit between the work, the “worker,” and the culture of the organization. Business process redesign is a holistic, systematic approach that can lay the groundwork to achieve performance gains that will increase the probability an organization will create a sustainable future for itself.

Sales Methods and Tools (Using Salesforce)
This course introduces structured sales frameworks, the strategy behind sales, and an overview of different sales methodologies that you can rely upon for repeatable success in the field. You will obtain hands-on experience with industry-standard tools that companies are looking for in new hires and for promoting internal candidates as you acquire and apply skills in prospecting, managing the sales pipeline, customer relationship management, and developing winning sales pitches.
