REAL-WORLD PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE

TALENT INCUBATOR PROGRAM

Experienced consultants, with strong technical and/or business skills, are in demand and command high salaries. Even if you have the budget for a top-notch expert, they are in short supply. And, if you find someone and successfully bring them on board for your project, once the project is complete, they are off to the next big project and you still need a resource to maintain your application.

New Resources Consulting instituted the Talent Incubator to identify, train and coach local and diverse talent to fill enterprise application roles. Our graduates have real-world practical experience working on implementations and upgrades – in fact, specifically on your project – combined with classroom training from our staff of top-notch consultants.

MATTHEW POUPITCH

My name is Matthew Poupitch, and this is my experience as a graduate of the NRC Talent Incubator program. 

In 2011, I graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) in Information Technology and Finance from Marquette University. My first job directly out of college was as a member of New Resources Consulting’s proprietary Talent Incubator program, dedicated to identifying, training, and grooming graduates to fill technical and functional support roles for PeopleSoft enterprise applications. While this was my first exposure to the PeopleSoft application, after only six months in the Talent Incubator program, I was able to troubleshoot PeopleSoft related issues in procurement, finance, and core modules. I found myself being able to identify areas for application and process enhancements, perform comprehensive end-user training, and actively lead meetings and manage projects.

The first half of the program rotates the Talent Incubator through the Procurement, Finance, and Core modules; the second half enables the Talent Incubator to become proficient in a specific area. This format allowed me to experience numerous areas to determine my interests and provided my mentor with the ability to assess the areas in which I excelled to tailor the remaining portion of the program to my needs and clients. Soon after, I began working on issues and navigating through the software on my own, with my mentor available as a resource to guide me when necessary. Finally, I was integrated as a full support team member with ownership of issues and projects.

The NRC Talent Incubator program was a great way to begin my career in the IT workforce and the professional realm. The program taught me much more than just PeopleSoft; it taught me how to work with various professionals to provide a solution. The NRC Talent Incubator program is an excellent way to fulfill a client’s resource need, and it proves to be a great way to introduce a recent graduate to the professional world.

SAMPLE PROGRAM TIMELINE

SUCCESS STORIES

Advanced Disposal needed to implement multiple PeopleSoft FSCM modules in an aggressive timeframe, as well as hire knowledgeable staff to maintain and support the new structure after the implementation.  NRC subject matter experts and senior consultants performed the project while simultaneously mentoring the junior talent, successfully implementing the modules in the required timeframe.  Upon project completion, Advanced Disposal hired three junior consultants, already fully trained on their PeopleSoft system and internal processes.

Managed Services | New Resources Consulting

Veolia Environmental Services upgraded their PeopleSoft FSCM and HCM modules.  NRC team mentors not only assisted Veolia’s existing staff with the project, but, through the Talent Incubator, developed junior consultants into competent team members. The participants were selected into the NRC Talent Incubator to match Veolia’s culture and future competency needs. Four junior consultants were hired at the completion of the project.

Northwestern Mutual required PeopleSoft System Administration support.  NRC’s Talent Incubator program was used to identify and groom candidates to deliver these capabilities and perform tasks specific to Northwestern Mutual’s needs. Upon project completion, Northwestern Mutual hired both junior consultants.​
