"What if you don't train them and they stay" I love that line!

My company actually let me stay in training even knowing I was looking for another job (another manager had let it slip in a conversation with mine and felt horrible immediately.)  It didn't convince me to stay but it kept a good relationship with me until I leave.  And I made sure to pass the knowledge I got on to people that can make architecture changes after I leave in very applicable ways.  In other words, here's something we covered and here's a script to identify where it's happening.  I also ended giving a month's notice to try and finish a couple tricky issues which I wouldn't have been able to in two weeks.

The Twitter exchange about training and leaving versus not training and staying is a variation on a quotation that I have seen attributed to Zig Ziglar:  "The only thing worse than training everyone and having some of them leave is not training any of them and having them all stay."

Sorry for the very late addition to this thread.

Andy, thanks for your many thoughtful blog posts.  You're hitting nails on the head.
