    Hello Paul,

    I wonder if you have any more specific plans about this than "meeting the Mentors". I understand this is most probably just a first step, but if you would have any more specific ideas you could share here (or through another blog), it would be great.

    To create something new at the "meeting" would be great, but feels like more luck-dependent than a real process from A to B, to get the results. I am also unable to come to Vegas, to talk but am interested to participate in the discussion.

    So my question is: could you write something instead of the talking? You have so many potential people for help you from all around the globe (that for example means different time zones:))), but you would waste most of the potential if would only talk with some of the lucky.

    Hope to hear/read/see more,

    best regards

    Otto

    Hi Otto

    The blog did not go the way I had initially intended. I was expecting universities to post comments about how SAP Mentors could possibly assist in their programs. I would then try and source the appropriate SAP Mentor or experts who could assist.

    We have been very successful at Victoria University in building these relationships and I was trying to assist other universities.

    We have organised Tony de Thomasis to teach a subject next semester based on the Netweaver stack. We will be working with the SAP community to develop the case study for the 2011 Australian Dashboard competition. In late October we will be conducting a Supply Chain Simulation game involving teams from universities and industry mentors.

    The blog has resulted in SAP experts offering their assistance to work with universities and no universities requesting assistance.

    I will continue to look for opprotunities of how to bring industry and universities closer together and hopefully some of the things we achieve will be models for similiar activities to be conducted by other universities.

    regards
