  1.  The role and importance of simulated enterprise

 

Simulated enterprise is an interactive method of learning and entrepreneurship while ensuring the practical application of theoretical knowledge acquired by students. At the level of activities of this company are simulated by the model of what works in the real economy and future employees come into contact with actual working conditions, considering today IT skills [1].

The main objectives of this learning method [2], which simulates specific business processes, are linked to the enhancement of entrepreneurial skills including: decision making, analysis, teamwork, organization and initiative. Based on the skills acquired by students in a virtual economic environment, the subsequent transition to professional carrier, graduates will make it easier and more efficient, as they will be more responsive to labor market needs.

Simulated enterprise is organized in departments (human resources, marketing, purchasing, sales, accounting etc.) as real enterprises but has a number of particularities comparing to them, ie not producing real goods and services, there is no real money, and no entrepreneurial risk.

The main actors simulated enterprise are:

 

  • Students, who will be employed by the simulated enterprise, and who will participate in the conduct of economic activity,
  • Coordinating teachers, whose role is to support the work, controlling, advice and set tasks for students
  • ROmanian Coordination of Training-firms (ROCT), which aims to control the activity of the national network of simulated enterprises, ensures exchange of information and communication between participating companies, simulating the activities of state institutions and sponsors and organizes trade fairs etc.

 

  1. The establishment of the simulated enterprise

 

The purpose of the establishment and functioning of simulated enterprise (training firm) is necessary to select the distribute students to the position depicted in the organization chart. The organization chart and departments specific activities of the company, namely: human resources, marketing, purchasing, sales, and finance and accounting, as well as the main duties of each department are presented to the students. Distribution of students on leadership positions or running within different departments will be made on the basis of an interview with each student individually. It is important that the interview should clearly show both the interest of the candidate for a certain type of activity and personal skills in relation to the tasks they will return during the deployment task.

To obtain correct information by applying the technique of interview it is necessary to comply with a number of general requirements such as: information on undergraduate study (evaluation of psychological, personality etc.), the use of open-ended questions, which provide opportunities for comments, avoid personal judgements on the part of the person conducting the interview, as well as careful listening and encouraging its students.

In the end of the interview are proposed to students, departments and positions that would be a good idea to occupy and make debates in order to identify the following elements: the choice of the industry and of the idea of business, legal form of the firm establishment and preparation of documents necessary to establish build-up.

The industry choice and establishment of business may result from students ‘ interest and expertise for a particular area, most often bound to studies on profile follows them, and as a result of studying ROCT portfolio companies, focusing on where the segments offer is insufficiently represented.

Students business ideas, are debated, each participant following to argue the proposal and at the same time to make some remarks on the proposals of others.

Once the idea of business has been established, the enlisting to NACE Code – the activity domain list, the establishment code designation, as well as the form in which the company will operate.

Legal form, for start-ups, will be based on the model of the LLC (Limited liability company), in the future might be transformed into Joint Stock Company, if financial results are outstanding.

Establishing the legal form of operation, impose to clearly define the number of associates, the value of social capital, as well as an administrator nomination will be given during the course of its operation.

Establishment phase, involves the preparation of required documents and following step by step this procedure. Basically, at this phase it is necessary to enlist the simulated enterprise in ROCT. For this, the documents necessary for the establishment of the company are presented to the students, and their filling module: application for registration, operation and approval of memorandum, declarations on oath that associations and the administrator of the company meet the requirements of the law 31/1990 regarding companies, enlisting and authorizing operation application, headquarters-lease agreement, application for issuing tax record, opening bank account request, sheet with specimen signatures, payment of social capital proof, empowerment, social capital deposit (if the submission is made someone other than the administrator of the company).

Following the preparation and filing of documents established in the simulated company establishment, shall obtain the following documents: certificate of registration, certificate of recognition, assignment of account numbers and account balance confirmation, receipt for name reservation fee, tax record.

Following the above mentioned procedure, the following simulated enterprise have been established: Hardware Doctor LLC, Senpre LLC, IT HUB LLC, Intellisoft LLC, in which students were able to simulate the specific activities of the departments described above.

 

Enhanced students skills and abilities through the completion of this module are the following:

  • Familiarity with terminology,
  • Knowledge of procedure to be followed for enterprise establishment,
  • Accuracy of documents preparation and knowledge of the documents flow,
  • Ability to argue a proposition and support within an open debate,

Job rotation does not imply a change of position content, but the rotation of employees from one position to another after a period of time. This technique is widely used because it limits the degree of specialization and temporarily and allows increasing the knowledge content of the various position. Employees can use to better their skills, gain knowledge in order to achieve various tasks, or to carry out the whole process, in which the work item is only a part.

Benefits of job rotation in the company are the following stations:

  • Initial situation of the department’s employees, tasks, skills, as well as the time period during which the activity took place,
  • Situation resulting from job rotation,
  • Personnel training records which will allow a more rapid assimilation of knowledge specific to each position.

To do this, each employee will fill in a form in which it will retrieve the individual tasks of the department, work procedures, their relationships between departments etc.
