Introduction

The issue of enterprise learning might be regarded as marginally relevant to the core topic of this book, namely this of Enterprise Information Systems in SMEs. Based on our experience, several success and quite many failure stories, we derived enough knowledge on the role of corporate learning in general and the importance of introducing scalable learning processes that extend the already existing business processes of the enterprise. Especially for SMEs that have traditionally limited access not only to financial, human and technology but also to intellectual capital resources, this issue takes a higher priority as it may act as a disabling factor for their growth and sustained development.

We draw our experiences from the DERN (Digital Enterprise Research Network) project that has aimed at building a research network among some of the most important academic, research and technological Bodies and Enterprises of Greece.
