Despite monumental empirical evidence documenting the importance of thorough, individualized training, many companies still ignore it as much as possible. In reality, effective group and individual accounting software training can be the most important factor in the success or failure of an accounting software implementation. It must be much more than perfunctory. It must resonate with its audience. It must occur in a way where users can safely make mistakes, comfortably practice, and confidently gain proficiency. Implementing new accounting solutions without adequate training is akin to letting a tiger out of its cage without having a trainer present. You’ll get results, but probably not the ones you would like. Paul Farrell, CEO, Wizard Productivity Systems LP; pfarrell@wizardus.com
