The Action Planning tools for developing and sustaining effective inclusive entrepreneurship policies focus on the following topics:

  • 1. Developing a common vision;
  • 2. Agreeing an evaluation strategy;
  • 3. Building an integrated campaign; and
  • 4. Planning for a legacy.

Each topic is addressed through a specific 1.5 day workshop. For a detailed description of the workshop methodology please listen to the Lead expert’s podcast here.

  • The first workshop looks at the process of building a vision of success that could be accepted by partners and that focussed on the end benefits to the citizen.
