CONSULTANT: LAMID CONSULTING (International Management Consultants)

THE NEED Entrepreneurship entails working on the business (the big picture) and not daily working in the business –the Managers’ role. Many businesses fail because the promoters are often embroiled in the day to day concerns of production, assuring qualitative service delivery, meeting sales demands, and even more difficult still - managing people- despite not being sufficiently equipped to handle such diverse activities. Additionally, business owners daily grapple with: issues of cash crunch, cost control, unprofessional staff with poor attitudes, low people management skills, lack of sound organizational structures, absence of marketing strategies, and poor know-how and processes for delivering excellent customer service. These expose businesses to inventory management challenges with high risks of fraud and risks of decline. Consequently, the Entrepreneurship Boot Camp is not on trial, but has been GUARANTEED to deliver the unique, professional skill sets that are inevitable for building effective structures and processes for growing a winning business. It is a superior alternative to the mere hunches and half-baked ideas that many often resort to in responding to, and dealing with competition.
