X-Factor: The Power of Adapting + Innovating
What is the ADAPT Program?
Anyone whose employment status was affected by COVID-19 is eligible to apply to the ADAPT Program. Individuals of all skill levels, including those who may not have had any prior experience with data, are encouraged to apply.
Participants will develop the skills to investigate, prep, clean, and analyze data and create predictions, forecasts, and recommendations based on analysis. The Program includes several different training pieces including Alteryx Certification, a Predictive Analytics nanodegree program with Udacity, and a myriad of other learning opportunities.

What is the Innovator Program?
The Innovator Program is a collaborative network of customers and partners who go above and beyond to share their knowledge and passion for helping others. One of those activities includes mentorship.
“Being an Innovator isn’t a one-way street; I’ve also learned so much from this mentorship with Jon. Our knowledge exchange really got the wheels spinning and has opened it up to more creativity on both sides.”
“My strengths lie in the ability to look behind the scenes to get a solid understanding of the tools I'm using, whether it’s Alteryx, Tableau, or Python, to take full advantage of everything it has to offer, the nuances, and to learn how powerful a tool can be. It’s a mindset — this desire to constantly learn and never grow stagnant.”
“My X-Factor is my ability to think unconventionally and take out-of-the-box approaches, which Alteryx helps you do. I enjoy using different tools to find solutions/issues, and pride myself in being knowledgeable about what is out there and learning their nuances.”
