Building a Framework for the Kronos Training Plan

Dwain Lambrigger — Aug 2011

Like using Kronos Timekeeper, it's Efficiency We're After!

So I was filling out a resource calendar today, you know, so my bosses can have a good idea of what I am doing day in and day out. As I was plugging in dates of completion, hours to work on specific days and secondary dates as a result of the working days and "primary" dates of completion, and it hit me...Is there a better way to track all of this information on one program?

Generally considered an afterthought, OTJ is probably the oldest form of training. I was just camping with my son, and I had the opportunity to show him how to clean a fish. Then, I had the chance to watch him do the same thing.  (This thrilled me just slightly less than catching the two fish in the first place!) I mean, haven't we all sat with someone to learn specific tasks on a job? So again, why is that? Here are some of the reasons it works so well in so many situations:
