Showing up "late" in place 4, we think training is the most missunderstood part at all, although one of the most important one. A lot of people do not realize the importance of real good training and how this will be achieved. It is something you just can't introduce in a couple of days, like your hard- and software stuff, walking away, because the job is done. Its rather directly linked to human resources, the way people see themselve, how they perceive and how they interact within a group.

Nevertheless, "Getting Started" made good experience in the past. Motivation, fun learning something, taking part in progress, being a competent accepted member, treating people with respect are keywords:
Depending on the stage of your employees "Getting Started" gives them a hand individually, especially with the so called "stupid questions" they can't solve in training classes with up to 15 people or more. Better some 1:1 training sessions depending on the subject, instead of occupying people for days, not getting really ahead with their needs.
most important advantage for your company
- executive officers are sucject to trainings as well as others, makes them more sympathetic
about the problems involved
- colleagues, employees with a smile on their faces, because they don't worry about
new ages, because they have got more self-confidence during good trainings
- employees with a good knowledge base -in handling the new technologies- won't hesitate
to ask further questions and start some self-motivated research to solve their (very own)
- people use what they have learned, without saying, the workflow of the company
