|Eligibility||Many SMEs are owned and managed by people who have successfully harnessed their entrepreneurial skills. However, many of these same businesses are now facing internal and external challenges that need to be overcome to enable them to continue to compete.
Internal After a period of rapid company growth many owner/managers find that they need to supplement their hard-working entrepreneurial skills with more people centred skills e.g. leadership, motivation, communication, and problem solving skills.
External Globalisation, the expansion of the EU and competition from low cost economies means that companies need to work smarter not harder, i.e. the ability to carry out strategic analysis, implement business plans and follow progress with performance management systems and financial data.
This particular programme has been designed to assist owners and managers by offering them concise and relevant information and learning and that is relevant to the challenges that they are facing.
|Methods of Assessment||To ensure participants get a return on their investment everyone completes a project on an area directly related to a current issue for their business as part of this programme. A written report on the project will be assessed for the purposes of certification.|
