Deltek, Inc. (Nasdaq: PROJ) today announced that its Vice President of Deltek University, Dan Carusi, has been awarded the Gold CLO Learning In Practice award in the Global Practitioner Category by Chief Learning Officer (CLO) magazine. Dan Carusi won the top award for his work leading Deltek University’s efforts to deliver an effective training and development curriculum for Deltek’s engineering team in Makati, Philippines. The national CLO Magazine awards are presented annually to individual learning practitioners, executives and organizations that have helped its own employee-base or clients and customers enhance performance and meet business objectives through outstanding learning initiatives. The judges for the awards represent a number of significant national corporations. Deltek was chosen as a 2012 winner by CLO Magazine from a record number of entries this year. Dan Carusi was awarded the Gold Global CLO Learning In Practice Award for his initiative to use Deltek University to deliver customized product training to the company’s engineering team in the Philippines. To drive greater understanding of Deltek’s products among Makati engineers, Mr. Carusi utilized Deltek University’s proven methodologies for delivering product training and increasing user adoption that are hallmarks of its offering for Deltek customers. Under his leadership, Deltek University developed a product learning portal and individual development plans and established a Junior Advisory Group. These learning techniques ensured that the company’s engineering teams in Makati had the most effective product training so they could excel at their mission of developing the world’s best enterprise software for project-based companies. “As we expanded our presence in Makati, we kicked off a learning initiative to better educate a global team on the functionality of Deltek solutions and how our customers use them to improve business performance. Despite time zone challenges and language barriers, an ambitious goal was set to transform the Makati engineering team into Deltek product experts so they could be more effective in their roles, retain outstanding employees and attract the best talent in the region,” said Holly Kortright, SVP of Human Resources at Deltek. “That initiative has translated into a superior training curriculum, higher levels of customer satisfaction and exceptional employee morale, positively impacting our business in numerous ways. We are extremely proud of Dan Carusi, Deltek University, and our innovative team in Makati for winning this award – it’s a great reflection of the hard work of everyone involved in this strategic learning initiative.”
