  • Competence development and performance among Swedish micro firms
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Darush Yazdanfar; Saeid Abbasian, Carina Hellgren)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - This study examines the association between performance and competence development among Swedish micro firms, measured as number of hours per person a company allocates annually to competence development.Design/methodology/approach - A panel dataset consisting of around 395 firms will be analysed using SUR-model for relationships between the hours allocated to competence development and various proxies for business performance, and the relationship between attending a business training programme and various proxies for business performance.Findings - The empirical results are mixed showing a positive association between owners´ attendance on a business training programme and company performance merely with regard to four performance variables: better job satisfaction within a company, increased number of employees, organisational improvements and increased exports. However, the findings provide no evidence to suggest that there is a link between competence development and other performance variables. Practical implications - The present study provides a better understanding of the relationship between company performance and competence development. An investment in entrepreneur training and education could ensure the improvement of the performance of micro firms. This implication is especially relevant to firms in such industries as the service sectors, which are highly competitive. Originality/value - This study is based on a unique sample including many relevant variables, compared to previous researches. To the authors’ best knowledge, this study is the one of the first empirical investigations focusing on this issue in the Swedish context.

  • Learning outcomes of a work-based training programme: The significance of
           managerial support
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Eva Ellström; Per-Erik Ellström)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - The purpose of this study was to explore the extent to which first-line managers' (FLMs') support of employee learning activities influence the learning outcomes and the transfer of training from a work-based vocational education and training (VET) programme. Design/methodology/approach - The study was designed as a multiple-case study including six service units in elder care. Data were collected through interviews with managers and care workers in the six units. Findings - The study demonstrated that the role of first-line managers (FLMs) was a significant condition for the learning outcomes attained and for positive transfer of training. For care workers to attain benefits from training that went beyond the individual level, that is, benefits at the level of the work team or the organisation, a supportive FLM role appeared to be necessary.Research limitations/implications - The statistical generalisability of the study is limited by its character of a multiple-case study of six work units. At the same time, a strength of the study lies in its potential for analytic generalisations, that is, for identifying and verifying theoretically meaningful patterns across a number of cases. Practical implications - The findings suggest a need for management development that promotes a broader understanding of the task as first-line manager, and, specifically, improved knowledge and skills regarding how to lead and organise learning and development processes in a workplace.Originality/value - Using a qualitative approach, this study adds to the limited knowledge of first-line managers’ influences on the learning outcomes and the positive transfer from work-based training.

  • Measuring skills in Europe
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Žilvinas Martinaitis)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - ‘Skills‘ is a central concept in a number of academic and policy debates. Yet measurement of skills of labour force remains highly problematic. The dominant approach uses signals of individual capacities (e.g. level of education) as a proxy of skills. This paper develops and tests methodology for more direct measurement of skills by focusing on how individuals perform their tasks rather than what they could be capable of doing.Design/methodology/approach - Proposed theoretical framework assumes that skills used at workplace represent the skills an individual has. This is captured by the analysis of how tasks are performed. Level of skills-in-use is measured at three dimensions: degree of uncertainty, level of autonomy and opportunities for continuous skill-building. Empirical analysis utilises survey data on 29 European countries.Findings - First, the paper proposes a novel methodology for measuring skills. Second, it uses data from European Working Conditions Survey to measure skills of workforce in 29 European countries. Research limitations/implications - Research limitations/implications – the depth of indicators used for measurement of skills could be further expanded, if additional questions could be inserted in the pan-European surveys. Practical implications - Findings suggest that the quality of employment domain (tasks, technologies, work organisation, etc.) could be as important as formal education systems in upgrading the skills of labour force. Originality/value - The paper proposes and tests methodology for more direct measurement of skills than the ones previously employed in academic and policy debates.

  • Studying teamwork and team climate by using a business simulation. How
           communication and innovation can improve group learning and
           decision-making performance
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Andrea Ceschi; Ksenia Dorofeeva, Riccardo Sartori)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - This study aims to investigate how dimensions related to teamwork and team climate can influence decision-making and learning of teams (performance). In order to understand which factors are more effective, several relevant group and team characteristics drawn from classical literature on groups and more recent empirical team simulation research have been considered.Design/methodology/approach - The paper presents the results of a longitudinal study carried out during four months. 183 Italian participants, divided into 50 teams of three (n = 24), four (n = 19) and five (n = 7) members, have been involved in a business game developed by several European savings banks and simulating a real stock market environment. The aim of each team is not only to earn virtual money, but also learning long-term strategies to develop profitable investments without losing sight of economic factors. Findings - Based on literature review, we tested three group levels (Intragroup relations level, Self-member level and Group-design level) by making three hypotheses concerning the teams involved in the simulation. We investigated the Communication and Innovation (CI) dimension from the Italian version of the TCI (Team Climate Inventory) by Ragazzoni et al. (2002). A correlation between team performance and CI was found (r = .301 p = .048), which is in line with the hypothesis that such factors as communication and support for innovation can affect the decision-making performance.Originality/value - The results presented in the paper let practitioners understand which dynamics characterize teamwork activities and how such aspects as communication and support for innovation can lead to group learning and decision-making performance. The simulation used in our research is an empirical way to study team performance and group learning without other noise variables.

  • Application of best practices in university entrepreneurship education:
           designing a new MBA program
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Steven Anthony Gedeon)
      Abstract:

      Purpose - This article identifies and applies best practices in university entrepreneurship education to the creation of a new MBA in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management. It is a direct response to calls for a total re-envisioning of entrepreneurship education and criticism that existing programs lack rigour, content, pedagogy, measurement and an established definition. Design/methodology/approach - This article uses reviews of the literature to identify normative best practices and how to apply them to the new program. An Entrepreneurship Program Design Framework (EPDF) was created and applied to a new MBA program being developed in central Germany.Findings - Most studies describe aspects of current programs (e.g. lists of courses) but almost none say what should be in a program. Others provide abstract guidance (e.g. programs should define entrepreneurship) but do not give specific recommendations (e.g. what the definition should be). The proposed EPDF provided a rigorous structure for reviewing the literature, designing the new program and establishing specific best practice recommendations for defining program goals, content, pedagogy and measurement of student transformation. Research limitations/implications - The entrepreneurship literature is largely silent on normative best practice guidance, so the proposed application of best practices should be evaluated in that context. Originality/value - Previous articles present relatively abstract frameworks and concepts, whereas this article is a direct application of the practical implications of these concepts. The proposed normative best practice guidelines may be somewhat controversial, but should stimulate useful discussion.
