GP Training Fun? Inexpensive? A Morale Builder?

Too often Dynamics GP training is like a big version of the whisper game. The consultants train the trainers, usually functional leads, who then train the rest of the users. When employees leave or change positions, they train their replacements, maybe.

With each training pass, a little more knowledge leaks from the system.  Occasionally, there's some re-training, usually around a major upgrade. Alternatively, a new hire may have Dynamics GP experience he or she brings in to the organization. But really, that's about it.

This issue isn't unique to Dynamics GP, it's prevalent across the ERP space. There have been a rash of public company restatements lately where the blame was laid squarely on inadequate training in the accounting and finance functions.
