  • Training can be end-user focused or to help train consultants 

Tips on Training: 

  • Know your user personas and teach them how to use the software in the way that’s best for them 
  • When delivering initial system training, don’t teach several ways to do something – pick the best way for that job role and train on that method 
  • Identify the influencers who will be impactful to others on the project and work to alleviate their concerns or promote the positives 
  • Identify the person who will be your champion and find something that will make them happy 

Dynamics 365 and Power Platform Training for Ukrainians: 

  • Julie and other passionate Microsoft MVP’s have started a program to skill-up Ukrainians on Dynamics 365 and the Power Platform in a 6-week program
