This research aims to understand the most effective ways to enhance learning in developing knowledge and ultimately building competencies. It has been shown that learning may be enhanced by adopting a variety of methods and formats (blended learning). Technology, in the form of simulation games, is crucial in enhancing learning. These approaches and methods may be adopted in human resource management processes to increase the capacity for knowledge creation. This has the potential to contribute to the development of the UK’s workforce competencies and the UK’s competitiveness.
