Management Skills for Small Business

This paper addresses several issues relating to management skills for small business in Canada. Is there evidence of deficiencies in management skills in the small firm population? Is it possible to identify key management skills for small firms? What are the barriers to the acquisition of the critical skills and, conversely, are there factors or circumstances favourable to their acquisition? What are some of the key characteristics of the demand for, and supply of management skills for the small business sector in Canada? What are some of the approaches used to address the problem? What is the appropriate role for government? Can fruitful areas for future policy research in this area be identified?
