2 Education Preface The Strategic Balance team has the experience and a proven methodology to expedite positive bottom line results with PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne and World Training.

An implementation requires the full support of your team. It insists on one of the things all people resist… change. Abundantly more important than technology, the training of your team is paramount to enjoying rapid ROI and realizing the business process improvements objectified by the system implementation in the first place.
