Putting knowledge into Practice

To assist you and your organisation in implementing the knowledge and insights gained from the Short Executive Programme on Small Business Development in Emerging Economies, we offer a consultancy package. With this package, we help you translate the newly gained insights into practical strategies and actions within your respective contexts. It includes tailored consultancy activities conducted by MSM’s specialized consultants in collaboration with a knowledge partner at your location.

The consultancy package aims to deliver two primary results: (1) business organisational development, focusing on enhancing the capabilities and performance of your organisation, and (2) the creation of a sectoral plan, such as a cluster or value chain development strategy.

Value Proposition
This program not only provides up-to-date factual and practical knowledge about private sector development but also offers personalized advice on how to apply this knowledge effectively. The consultancy services are tailored to address the specific needs of your organisation, region, or sector, ensuring that the strategies developed are both relevant and actionable.
