1st objective of the project: to collate the increasing volume of literature on the training needs of MSEs and present the results in the form of a multidimensional study.
The preparatory Study will have a chapter with recommendations to different level decision-makers on their possible role in putting – where and how – incentives to strengthen motivation of the MSEs for improving pre-planned training development in their companies.

2nd objective is to transform the outcomes of the multifaceted analysis into a Practical Handbook for easy use of it for the varied user groups: students, owners/managers of MSEs, future qualified advisors of MSEs in HRD, called Business Coaches.
This Handbook is expected to give guidance for the owner/managers of micro and small enterprises for the elaboration of a strategy of staff (owner/manager included) further trainings, for the student target group (future MSE owners/managers) and for MSE advisors as specialization. A special chapter will be devoted to the proposed procedures of motivation of MSEs to start planning of further training of the staff.

3rd objective, on the basis of the Project Results of the above two objectives, is to develop a Comprehensive Training Curriculum (Materials) for owner/managers and also for students (future company managers).
This will show how to conceptualise the necessary further trainings for the governance and the employee staff depending on the characteristics and development status of the company taking into account the life cycle of the company and also its following development phases.
