Title COMPETENCY BASED TRAINING MATERIAL DEVELOPMENT FOR E-WORKERS
Product Type teaching material
Marketing Text The Competency based training material (CbT) will be developed for E-workers and e-managers of SMEs. There will be 5 E-manager modules, 4 E-worker modules and 3 "shared" modules that are suited for both target groups. The modules will develop the following 12 competencies: leadership skills, change management skills, motivation skills ,performance appraisal skills, conflict handling skills, communication skills, life long learning skills, quality awareness, team building skills, time-management, decision making skills, problem solving skills. A training material will help those managers and workers who want to introduce distance working in their organisation. It will give aid to those managers who face new challenges while working with colleagues in different locations or perhaps abroad.
Description The effectiveness and usefulness of the described competencies (leadership skills, change management skills, motivation skills ,performance appraisal skills, conflict handling skills, communication skills, life long learning skills, quality awareness, team building skills, time-management, decision making skills, problem solving skills)in the Competency based Training Material will be developed and tested through a "video conference training", then corrections will be made if necessary and will be transformed in e-learning format. The effectiveness of the training will be tested on SMEs during a "simulation" testing phase, after adopting the e-learning materials. With real case studies participants will simulate an e-work project. The manager will assign work in one partner country and the e-worker will do the job. The manager will have to assign the work, set up measurable (SMART) objectives, provide help and assistance if necessary, motivate and handle conflict, learn the best ways of communication, insure quality and finally appraise the e-worker. The e-worker will have to perform the job, insure quality, keep the deadline, handle conflicts, manage his or her time, solve problems and make decisions if necessary. Finally the e-worker will have to participate in a performance appraisal process. With this unique testing phase potential participants will practice and improve skills and competencies necessary for successfully managing e-work projects in the future.
Target group E-workers and e-managers in Small and Middle sized companies. Potential employers and employees who are interested in e-working.
Result The result of the project will be a competency based handbook and e-learning material for e-workers and e-managers with appropriate training material, case studies and role plays. This training material will be useful for both e-managers and e-workers to improve their e-competencies in order to work efficiently in e-environment.
Area of application The product will be used by potential managers and workers who would like to work at home and would like to develop their e-competencies in order to work more efficiently. With e-learning tools anyone who is interested in distance learning and working will be able to use the product. In case of low performance e-managers can set up performance objectives for their e-workers to improve their e-skills with the help of this tool. E-workers can also use the CbT service to find their weak competencies in order to improve them. The tool will help both e-managers and e-workers to implement the idea of Life Long Learning.
