It is common for companies to have an induction program lasting several weeks before a new employee is put on his/her regular job. Acadinnet's induction program is tailored for groups of young technical employees whose roles will require them to participate in teams developing new products and processes of commercial value. The induction program lays stress on the importance of using scientific knowledge, selection of concepts, analytical abilities, computer simulation, search of prior art, and the role of intellectual property when seeking solutions to unsolved technical problems. The program is tailor-made for each client on the basis of the employer's perception of the role to be played by the employee-group in the next two-three years. The minimum duration of the program is three-months. The objective of the program is to orient an employee's perspective and thinking so that he/she instinctively thinks first about the concepts required to solve a problem and only then decides which options are worth-a-try rather than thrashing around looking for ad-hoc solutions. An important part of the program is to get them into the habit of maintaining a personal journal of their understanding of the problem to be solved, the concepts considered and possibly abandoned that may lead to a solution, the final selection of the concepts retained (with reasons), and their expectation of what the solution will look like (i.e., why it is worth-a-try). Other elements of the program include individual mentoring, and brain-stimulation sessions. The program is like a detoxification program where a person's mind-set developed through rote-education is changed to that of a free-thinking individual with the courage to solve problems on the basis of first-principles.
