Research Findings on a Virtual Training Center--Measuring Web Based Training as an Effective Project Management Facilitation Intervention.
Hoyt, Brian; Stockman, Mark
This paper focuses on the design of an assessment plan that can accurately measure the impact of using World Wide Web-based deliveries to increase performance. Key trends in technology and training are reviewed, and effective assessment of online training deliveries is examined. The Virtual Business Training Center (VBTC) is an integrated business resource center that provides students with access to online market research, project management, and other project-based data analysis opportunities. It also functions as a business lab and virtual training for business partners. The authors used this unique virtual project environment to facilitate the access of project data by students (retrieval, analysis, evaluation), re-post as work in progress onto a Web-based environment for business partners' participation, then edit or move onto the next project phase. Current research results indicate that the Web-based environment enhances access to both volume and timeliness of data and information. This virtual training platform also speeds up analysis and contributes to more effective project completion. The contribution to project success was measured by adherence to schedule, agreed-upon deliverables, and resource allocation. (Contains 14 references.) (MES)
