Resumen del proyecto:

The present-day complexity of business and its environment has made the classical analytical approach of traditional training obsolete. Such training does not take into account the interaction between different departments in companies and existing training methods and tools are therefore insufficient and/or inappropriate. This project is based on "Systems Thinking" which is capable of detecting complex needs and makes use of new information technologies.

"Transparent-box" business simulation methods will be designed using innovative computer-based and interactive software. These will relate the behaviour of business variables with the internal structure of companies, thus enabling decisions to be made on the basis of the causes of problems and not on their symptoms. Education modules for business training at different levels will also be developed for use with the software.

Impact This project will develop an innovative solution for vocational training in complex business environments.
