Achieve business outcomes quickly and easily

Tackle Boxes are consultative guides to support you in quickly and easily achieving common business outcomes with Puppet. In each Tackle Box we identify the prerequisites, walk you through the process step-by-step, and share where the "gotchas" are and how to navigate through them.

At the end of each Tackle Box, you can check if you're ready to go and then download the handy job aid to implement the solution in your environment.

By using these Tackle Boxes, you can address challenges hook, line, and sinker. Not sure where to cast your line? First, choose a category. Then, open the Tackle Box labeled with the outcome you want to achieve.

Use the player controls to listen to the presentation.
