For students interested in establishing and managing their own small firm, this book should help them to focus their thinking on the realities of life as a small business owner-manager - both its challenges and its rewards. For postgraduate students that are keen to ‘make a difference', this text should enable them to understand how they might consult to small firms and assist owner-managers to establish and grow their ventures. In addition to students enrolled at universities and colleges, this book should also prove useful to small business owner-managers as a general guide on how they might better manage their operations. Managers in large corporations and financial institutions who deal with small businesses as clients or suppliers, and professionals such as accountants, lawyers and consultants who provide advice and other services to small businesses will also find the book of interest.
