ABC Company has 50,000 employees at it headquarters. The company wants to increase employee productivity by setting up internal software application training program for it employees. The training program will teach employees how to use Microsoft software programs such us Vista, Word 2007, Excel 2007, PowerPoint 2007, Access 2007 and project 2007. Courses will be offered in the evenings and on Saturdays and will be taught by qualified volunteer employees. Instructors will be paid $40 per hours. In the past, various departments sent employees to courses offered by local vendors during company time. In contrast to local vendors’ programs, this internal training program should save the company money on training as well as make its people more productive. The Human Resource Department will manage the program and any employee can take the course. Employees will receive a certificate and will be put in their personal records. The company has decided to use off the shelf training materials, but is not sure which vendor material to use. The company needs to setup training classrooms, survey employees on what courses they want to take, find qualified volunteer instructors, and start offering the courses. The company wants to offer the first course within six months. One person from human resources is assigned full time to manage this project, and top management has pledge to support the project.
