Small Business Owners Training

About this Course:

The Small Business Owners (SB) training builds on the key principles of business to develop the competencies needed for managing operations and making improvements. The emphasis is not on producing fully worked revisions of written business plans but on supporting business owners to develop the skills for assessing different business strategies and identifying practical improvements. The SB training is designed for individuals that have existing enterprises, particularly those that have been recently established or those that have faced difficulties.

After completing the training, participants will better understand how a business operates, how to assess different business strategies, and how to collaborate with others to promote their businesses success. Participants will have a new skill set and confidence to take action, make decisions and plan for the future of their businesses or prospective businesses.

The SBĀ is part of Community-Based Enterprise Development (C-BED), a low cost, innovative training program designed by the International Labour Organization (ILO) to support skills development and empowerment in local communities for improvements in livelihoods, productivity and working conditions.
