What are some best practices to implement for secure employee password management?

The very question is endemic of the problem associated with passwords. A day devoted to password considerations. Tomorrow they will be long forgotten. As I see it, there are a few levels of considerations to be included in this question:
Commercial credit cards
Membership Roles & Access
Access oriented (Systems, applications, resources)
Most personal users use the same password for ALL their connections. Worse, many users cache and remember these connections in their browsers. This is the #1 area I would suggest addressing to have the greatest positive impact for Home User scenarios.
A good password with length and complexity is the start, followed by having a password vault, with Norton Password Safe being my favorite, but Pwsafe and KeePass are good candidates for storage of many complex passwords.
Apply these principles personally and professionally.
