Pearls of Wisdom

Pearls are the birthstone for the month of June. Pearls are associated with purity, honesty, and wisdom, as in the term “Pearls of wisdom.”

Pearls of Wisdom

That is a description of wise advice, concise pieces of sagacity that are metaphorically as precious as pearls. Originally, pearls of wisdom referred to bits of information or advice that the receiver truly found precious. Today, referring to information or advice one receives as pearls of wisdom is often, but not always, sarcastic, as the phrase is now considered a terrible cliché. The term pearls of wisdom dates back at least to the early 1800s.

Wisdom in Systems Engineering

Wisdom can take various forms of thinking. Strategic wisdom; system wisdom; decision wisdom; creative wisdom and so on. All these forms of wisdom can be utilised if they are organised to work together in a single, integrated solution.  This will get the best results, as all the effort will guide that wisdom to be used systematically to reach the same required goals.

Cradle Public Training Courses 2022

Training Course Dates for 2022

3SL are offering a number of Cradle public training courses in 2022.

Cradle Online Training
Online Cradle Training

Public courses are ideal for companies;

    • with a small number of candidates
    • starting using Cradle but not needing an industry tailored course
    • using more advanced features

These courses are an alternative to the tailored, industry/implementation specific consultancy and training offered by 3SL. This makes for a cost effective solution, where you’ll benefit from all the normal learning, with the advantage that a public course will have the chance to network and share with other virtual attendees from other industries.

Following feedback our online courses have been split into smaller part day sections. (a two day course will now be delivered over four ½ days). This will allow candidates a longer break from training screens and more of an opportunity to put in practice some of the topics covered. When returning to the following session any questions can then be resolved.

This calendar is subject to change. Courses may be added removed or altered depending on demand. Booking will become available through the website shop for credit/debit card transactions prior to each course. For purchase orders and transfer payments please contact 3SL.
