Here Comes the Flood—Going Live with Print Software

Think of your go-live date for your Print MIS as a flood. Prepare for it by training everyone how to create sandbags and then monitoring that everyone actually applied the learning and figured out how to do their jobs in the new system BEFORE go-live.

So true, great stuff Jennifer!

Susan - thanks for reading. I know you're living this with the printers you're implementing. It would be nice if we all (vendors and printers) prepared more by prioritizing LEARNING so we can be nice and dry after go-live ;-)

Spot on as usual! MIS trainers skilled, in not just their MIS software but real-world print shop experience, is another sandbag to have in your implementation arsenal.
