Why Training is Important
First, project team training is more than just learning how to perform transactions in the system. The internal team must be active participants in the design and setup of the application. A team that does not understand what the software is capable of doing will be more dependent on outside consultants to get it right. Even with the best consultants, this approach is risky, since they will never understand the subtleties of your business as well as employees do. Client software knowledge is the great enabler in terms of the quality of their involvement.
A team that understands the system and its potential usage can be more proactive in determining how the software will be configured and applied within the business. In this case, the team is in a better position to ask their consultants the right questions, spot things that appear wrong with the software setup, or possibly do more of the project work on their own.
Second, if the team lacks software knowledge, do not expect anyone else in the company to understand it. The team, not your consultants, should write the detail work procedures and ultimately train all end-users. Poor end-user training leads to suboptimization of business processes, costly workarounds, and improper use of the software tools.
Finally, you must prepare for the day when your consultants will walk out the door. After the system goes live, an organization that cannot properly train new users or make software configuration changes on their own (to support changing business needs and additional functionality) will become permanently dependent on expensive outside consultants.
In summary, the effects of inadequate team training include higher implement cost, the inability to leverage the software investment, and fewer benefits. It can also significantly increase the total cost of system ownership over the long run.
