The importance of training in building the future capabilities of business growth also was discussed during the program.
The program also discussed the typical challenges at SME’s and the dilemma between the people focus and the Business Focus. A detailed questionnaire designed by Husys was administered to give a flavor of the balance in managing their Business during the program. The Questionnaire focused on the assessment of the balance between the People Focus and Business Focus while building the growth. The model developed by Husys includes the four types of organizations. First one is the Passive organisation, which does business as it comes with least of people focus and business focus. The Second category of organisation focused more on people and less emphasis on the Business, which is called Peopulsive Organizations. The Third Category of Organisation is an Aggressive Organisation whose focus is on business and least concern for people in managing the business. The Fourth and the important segment for a business Growth is Progressive organisation that has a right balance of high people focus in building and growth aggressive business plans.
