Development of a training program for Family Businesses.
Start date: 2000
End date: 2003
Research Program: Leonardo Da Vinci
The project sought to promote the preservation of the small and medium-sized family business as an essential part of improving international competitiveness in generating growth and in creating employment. It focused on further promoting the potential of family businesses within, in particular, the participating countries of the wider Europe. The most innovative feature of this Internet-based learning programme was the fact that it was interactive. By participating in the programme, the user had the ability to develop and continue to develop his/her knowledge, skills and competencies in the field of family business through access to a virtual learning space. In addition to being able to retrieve and download customised training materials, the user was able to establish dialogue through interaction with the trainer(s) and fellow trainees. This was achieved through three facilities: electronic mail, discussion forum and on-line debating space.
