Six months after the implementation of a medical information system (MIS) employees were questioned concerning their evaluation of the training they received. Wide variability is observed in the range of employee responses to questions addressing their: satisfaction with the training experience, desire for any additional training, ease of learning to use the system, and level of felt competence in currently using the system. The results of stepwise regression analyses of the response patterns indicate that personality traits, attitudes toward automation, and work history variables are key factors in explaining why employees have different reactions to training.
