These (fill in the blank) items come at a time when everyone seems to have opaque job or career visions.

Kronos Change Management; It's the Individual, Dummy!

Dwain Lambrigger — Jul 2011

The need for training is a sign of change. The implementation of Kronos Workforce Central is a great example of that. When managing change it is easy to focus on what is changing, the effect on the organization as a whole, and how vast numbers of employees will will make the change, however without a specific focus on how the change will affect the individual, the management of change can't be completely successful.

Dwain Lambrigger — Apr 2011

We have spent a good deal of time talking about what the role of a trainer is in a Kronos Workforce training course. As I have said previously, I want to maintain an environment where learning can take place. I am responsible for everything in the classroom, from what I say to the materials provided, to the light and temperature of the training room.  That is on me.
