Management Skills for SMEs

Management development is fundamental to improving the productivity of small to medium-sized businesses (SMEs) in Ireland. The business owners and managers who adopt best-practice management skills are better placed to formulate clear strategy, adopt modern methods, develop better teams, and to innovate and grow.

14 organisations, from both the public and private sector developed Skills for Better Business to make it easier for SME owner-managers in Ireland to get started on their management development journey.

This journey will help you:

  • identify your management / leadership development capabilities and skills needs by completing the Skills for Better Business Online Assessment
  • navigate the various management development training opportunities available to you by visiting the Skills for Better Business Courses and Contacts page

You can find out more about how it works from the Department's website, or you can get started directly with the Online Assessment.
