No Training Required

Training can sometimes be lost on a team because the existing teammates were not trained. This precedent can sometimes create and attitude that discounts the value of training. No one ever trained them, so why should they take the time to train a new teammate? This may be true if that person is a button pusher. If not the existing teammate often misremembers the journey of discovery that actually trained them. They were forced over time to learn their job by painful trial and error. The memory of the length of time, frequency of error and the intensity of pain fades over time. This results in an unreasonable expectation of new teammates to complete that same crucible in a shorter amount of time with less error. Training helps others learn from our mistakes and shortens the learning curve.

  1. Training should be a regular and consistent. It is the ying and yang of longevity and success.
