    Kerry Rosvold - The Enterprise Resource Planning Training Gap: How to Bridge it

    How often do we find that we are frustrated while figuring out how to effectively train our teams? As business leaders, we have the unique challenge of training adult professionals in specific role-based business processes when they are often already distracted with the tasks that need to be accomplished for their regular activities. As our ERP tools change, we need to understand how to train our teams to maximize the tools we already have with Dynamics NAV, but also to be ready with the skills necessary to use the next generation of tools like Business Central.
