    Question helping to use OR helping for using...?

    In the following sentence I am not sure how to use some grammars and verbs.

    I managed the project helping managers and staff to jump to use the new system introduced.


    OR

    I managed the project helping managers and staff to jump for using the new system introduced.


    ????

    "...helping managers and staff to jump to use..."

    I don't really understand what you are trying to say in the above.

    Unhappy Re: helping to use OR helping for using...?

    Sorry, sorry, my mistake!!!

    I managed the project helping managers and staff to use the new system introduced.

    OR

    I managed the project helping managers and staff for using the new system introduced.

    I deleted "to jump", because I wanted to say "to jump into the new system" initially but then I changed mind with "to use" and I forgot to delete "to jump".

    My apologies.

    In that case this is correct: I managed the project helping managers and staff to use the new system introduced.

    Perhaps say "I managed the introduction of [whatever it was] to managers and staff members"
