I am asking because I would like to describe this as an achievement on my resume.
I will use an analogy to simplify my story:
I have a team of graphic designers and we get more and more requests but cannot hire more staff. I recognize that some on the team have an interest in programming, so I ask them to learn programming and see if they can implement any ideas to improve our situation.
A few months later, they come up with a program that automated some of the design creation (effectively increasing output per person by over 400%!).
Of course they hadn't become professional software engineers, but learned quite enough so they could significantly benefit to our productivity.
At the moment I put them on specialist courses for our sector, which means they will have even more skills. They are also working on improving the tools and building more applications to help our team specifically.
The "official" programming/it team is completely uninvolved.
Is there a more formal/managerial/technical way to describe what we achieved, or the process in general?
"Upskilled graphic designers with programming, resulting in process optimizations that led to 400% increase in productivity"... something like that?
