Molly Connolly (Thorsen Consulting, Inc.)

Session Code: BUS001


You’ve hired a smart, capable individual who fits your company culture but now you need to get them up to speed? How do you introduce them to maintaining your existing systems? How do you teach them FileMaker Pro from scratch when you barely have time to keep up with the work that you have? Or, for a semi-experienced developer, how do you create a training plan that helps them fill in gaps in their experience and move forward on a path towards continuous learning? This session will provide a framework for developing a short and long-term training plan for your new hire. It will focus on both technical and logistical steps in ensuring your new hire is being productive and able to move forward with or without direct supervision. Sample training exercises and community resources will be provided.
