Description Based on the survey the analyses of actual trainers competencies were conducted. Both Polish and Lithuanian trainees were asked to fill in the questionnaire which allowed to assess their competencies in training with the use of Strategic Management Games. Questions about experience with teaching with using virtual reality, experience in developing games, scenarios and teaching notes were examined. The results of these surveys were analyzed in order to assess the level of trainers competencies, to assess the gap between trainers current competence and competencies required in effective teaching process. Based on this analyses the training in teaching with management games was designed.
Trainers and educators are evaluated on the level of Virtual Game competencies and using ICT during training.
Research is conducted to define what specification cases are required and what sector should they focus on.
Most of the trainees have never participated in the training how to teach while using virtual strategic games. The training in Lithuania was the first time. Most of them have never used games during lectures either. This mens that both, the training on how to write scenarios, and the training how to teach while using games are very needed. Trainees are very interested and engaged in the process since the outcome can be very important for their future assignments.
The results of the survey lead to some conclusions:
1. Virtual Strategic Management Games is innovative and experiential teaching method, very seldom used during training.
2. VSMG is considered as a very potential teaching method.
3. Trainers from Lithuania use VSMG method more often than their counter partners in Poland. The method however is not very popular.

6. Trainers from both Lithuania and Poland have diversified level of competences on VSMG preparing and teaching. Most of them require further training on this topic.
