1. Well knowing what a champion is regarding leadership and HRM - a die-hard supporter for the idea that wants to work out the logistics of the business.

Honestly speaking yes, because although Jack is an outsider to the company, he came saw that a change was needed and was willing to make it happen. Also, with his background knowledge in a large company and in customer service and performance management he would make a good champion for the cause. Although some might regard him as inexperienced because of his age, he was able to induce change and was seen as a visionary at his former company.
2. They've built such different database systems because both divisions level of IT literacy are on two different levels. The HR department has a very low IT literacy. Therefore, they had someone they knew create something simple and easy and rather inexpensive for them to use right away. Whereas, with the training department they didn't have as many people and their knowledge in IT was very high compared to HR, so they opted for something to fit their level of intellect and to maintain the high standards they had set. The difficulty involved in integrating the functions of these divisions would be getting everyone on the same page. Once you choose to integrate you must be aware of the fact the again everyone's knowledge of IT is vastly different; so, getting something on the complicated side might cause delays in the HR department. Or the people in the training division might feel as though they're taking on too much of the administrative role of HR.
