I have four years of conventional MM and SD experience. Our client, where I have been working full time for the last three years, is upgrading to 4.6C next month. They also plan to implement SAP WM next year. I have already attended SAP's WM course. Can you suggest other courses that might be good to attend looking at the future?
WM could be a nice addition to your current skills, although you want to be cautious about focusing solely on WM. I address the future of the WM module specifically in another question this month, so you'll want to read that question and answer also. In terms of future training courses, I would encourage you to think about APO as well. With your core experience in SD, MM, and WM, you're in a good position for today's SAP market - but what about tomorrow's? That's where the advanced supply chain functionality in APO could round out your skills nicely. Also, if you attended APO training, you could perhaps help your current employer sort through the pros and cons of going with APO versus the core R/3 functionality. If you show a genuine interest in these issues, and take the initiative to train and educate yourself, you'll make a strong impression. In any case, you'll be in a better position to go in whichever direction your employer decides to take.
