When organizations delegate the implementation of training needs at local levels withoutthe specific direction from upper management, this can cause problemsfor employees during eLearning implementation and threaten the overall success of eLearningprograms. All necessary training should be available to managers,and there has to be training experts managers to whom we can contact for helpwhen required. Without commitment from managers, even formalized trainingprograms might not be productive.Leary and Berge (2007) stated that managers’ lack commitmentfor eLearning is usually a challenge reported by small organizations.
There isa wide array of issues involved with managers’ preferences, decision-making,prioritizing, and awareness. Leary and Berge (2007) go on to state that if theyhave a different learning characteristic or if they are accustomed to more traditional learning methods, theadoptionof eLearning receives more resistance (p. 1).
