This course addresses the three critical areas within the `history' of an SME. These include development and planning, management and implementation and business future. In the development and planning section, students will be asked to address all issues which contribute to the writing of an appropriate business plan. In the management and implementation section issues relating to the successful implementation of the business plan and on-going functional management tasks will be addressed. Finally, the business future section will examine issues which impact upon the future direction of the SME, including impacts of environmental factors and growth aspirations. Throughout the course, students will be required to continually apply the concepts and principles to their selected SME case enterprises. Reference will also be made to many other SMEs to provide as wide a context mix as possible.
