Excellence in Management – Practical Training,
 December 10-18, 2018
 
Justification
In recent decades, efforts have been made to advance rural development, through extension and organization.
Largely, these efforts have not yielded the desirable results.
It is very common for international organizations and NGOs to ignore the need for skilled and knowledgeable management, even though experience clearly shows that the key difference between successful rural farms and unsuccessful farms lies in management capabilities.
 
Objective
The objective of the training is to familiarize the participants with the strategies and tools for excellent management of small- and medium-size enterprises.
In the training, the participants visit several organizations in order to conduct a management audit.
In the classroom, the organizational managerial style is discussed. Also we learn to identify strategic errors in management.
The visits to organizations are accompanied by classroom presentations, which focus on the elements needed in order to ensure the successful management of Agribusiness ventures.
 
**All participants are asked also to prepare a business and execution plan, which is subject to
peer review.


Practical training
The training consists of classroom discussions and visits to agricultural processing plants, to observe their operations as they prepare the products for the commercial market.
The subjects that are discussed are: the management cycle; planning of vision, mission and values; internal organization; task execution; evaluations and adjustments; critical success points; the life cycle of an organization; managerial styles and personal profiles; tailor-made marketing; resource management; and building social capital and strategic alliances.
 
Emphasis is always on small- and medium-size enterprises of developing countries.
 
Expected results:
The participants will be able to develop and execute a winning business plan. They will also be able to conduct a management audit of their own businesses.
With the understanding that success in any endeavour is a result of careful planning and professional execution of the working plan, participants will leave the course equipped with the tools to improve their own managerial practices.
