Managers pull double duty. Not only are you responsible for your team’s output, but you lead its growth as well. Some freshly promoted managers may be unfamiliar with the fundamentals of employee training and development. After all, you probably didn’t get your degree in andragogy (more on that in a bit).
By now, we're all used to periodic updates to Word and other Microsoft Office applications. But maybe you haven't had a chance to keep up with some of the recent changes, or really think about them in terms of how your team could be using new features to enhance daily work.
Just because your project manager claims they’ll deliver on time and on budget, doesn’t always mean they will, especially when it comes to IT projects. As you and I both know, IT projects are inherently different than other types of projects.
Maybe your company is like ours, and you use Excel to help keep track of many things. Pretty much every department and every employee has to use Excel at least a little bit.

One of the most common mistakes that people make while formatting a document in Word is to use spaces to align text. Many of us have been frustrated by things not lining up perfectly, and we’re left dissatisfied by the slightly meandering edges.
Everything that glitters is not gold. But sometimes it is. If you have ever experienced "Shiny Object Syndrome" (Objectivius Shinium Syndromus) you know that for each recommendation for change that produces gold, there are just as many that do not hit pay-dirt.
Webinars are short, focused training seminars that take place over the web. Depending on the subject matter, we find that webinars are often preferred by many end users over traditional classes.
As a Training as a Service (TaaS) solution provider assisting companies with user adoption of the newest cloud-based technologies, I’m receiving more and more calls to provide a training solution for businesses deploying Skype for Business as part of their move to Office 365.
Clarity and focus. To get the most effective training in the most compact format, you might want to consider (a) getting crystal clear on your goals and desired outcomes, and (b) designing every aspect of the training process toward those ends.
Maybe you recently rolled out Office 365. Or maybe you rolled it out a little while ago. Either way, if you feel like your team is not really using it to its full potential, then you are not alone.
