The MySQL training team I would challenge as being one of the best training teams in the IT industry. In terms of experience, communication skills, camaraderie, focusing on team goals and building a great working team they are incredible. This team grew out of the MySQL and open source culture that was built with great management and a very profitable training model. This culture was based on working together, sharing and being humble. It's been great to see in today's wild corporate world that there are still companies out there that can build a culture than can bring out the best in individuals and teams.
It's been an amazing run of putting together a Swedish corporate culture with team members from Germany, Sweden, Finland, United States, China, etc. to build one of the best teams in the industry.
I would highly recommend any organization focused on building a highly profitable training organization look at the training model that was put together by MySQL. This model shows that putting a very heavy emphasis on building a quality organization versus just trying to deliver training at the lowest price still makes a difference to customers.
