This is a model proposal for the improvement and strengthening of the training processes through management strategies and modern pedagogies, which energize and make the learning process more efficient, thus contributing to improve the processes and actions of the Micro, small and medium enterprises ¨MSMEs” of the region supplying their demand for knowledge.

In the research, existent world theories were analyzed related to the management and transference of knowledge as innovative approaches to better the performance and competitiveness supported within the human component as the most valuable resource of the organization. Also, the pedagogical strategy of simulated companies was analyzed as a worldwide experience that can expand the process of comprehensive professional training. The study was implemented in the Centre for Commerce and Services of the Colombian National Learning Service (SENA - Institution for technical training) in Risaralda in order to provide an opportunity to improve the quality of the training imparted by SENA, adding value by stablishing an approximation and a connection with the production environment, where the common and fundamental factor is the transfer of information between different parties.
