Abstract

This paper describes the findings of an European four‐country study that attempted to pinpoint the practical impediments the small enterprises face when attempting to use information technology (IT) as an aid in their personnel training. The study was made using the Delphi technique, interviewing 120 specialists (company owners, software and IT producers, training providers) in four countries. The results suggest that most of the small companies are not yet ready to use the latest IT technologies in their personnel training, but there may be a “trickle‐down” effect from the bigger companies in some countries. The results furthermore suggest that the new IT solutions seldom deliver what they promise for the small companies. It seems that the significant impediments are the factors that the IT solutions were supposed to solve, namely freedom of time, space and pre‐described content. It seems that not many of the IT training solutions are developed with the small companies’ needs in sight, and a more close cooperation between the actors and tailoring of the IT products are often needed when planning this kind of training.

Abstract

Learning by doing can be costly, the more so the more complex the systems involved – just think of products such as space shuttles and organisations such as big supplier networks. Entering all new situations requires some learning, and in some situations learning can take place in a non‐cost environment in the form of simulations and role plays. This paper presents a methodology developed at the University of Kosice for managing quality systems in virtual organisations. The paper shows the principles, assumptions, and the procedure of a case role play for organisations establishing a virtual organisation to benefit from a lucrative opportunity that has emerged on the market. The paper speaks of the benefits of role play as both forum and tool for learning, especially in networked organisations. It seems evident that similar benefits would be achieved without the role play.
