Why this programme?

Leading a growing SME is not an easy job. Managing employees, negotiating with suppliers, following up the most important customers, discussions with accountants and banks ... demand all of your time and attention.

So there’s hardly any time for the important questions. Am I working with the right suppliers? Which customers are profitable? What information should I track to manage my business? Where do I want to be in 5 or 10 years? How will my organisation be then? How do I make my company less dependent on me? What does innovation mean for my business? How can I grow in the best way? What might that cost?

It's difficult to find people with whom you can discuss your plans and problems. What you must do is step back from your business for a moment and look in the mirror. By participating in this programme, you:

  • Learn how you can make your employees less dependent on you, by working on – instead of in – your company.
  • Analyse your business and make choices for the future, based on a reliable methodology and under the guidance of a panel of experts.
  • Network concerning content, together with your fellow participants, to discover answers to your questions about your entrepreneurship. 
  • Join the extensive network of Vlerick Alumni.
