Training entrepreneurs for small business creation: Lessons from experience,

by Kenneth Loucks
Management Development Series No. 26

The identification of entrepreneurial talent and the training of potential and existing entrepreneurs are issues that attract a great deal of attention. This book reviews a number of practical entrepreneurship development programmes that have given evidence of their viability, cost-effectiveness and relevance to national development needs. It describes the selection techniques and behavioural training methods used, and the various elements included in integrated programmes designed to help new entrepreneurs. It presents “best practice” based on field research and the literature on the subject.

The main purpose of the book is to demystify entrepreneurship and the training of entrepreneurs. If it helps to identify new entrepreneurs and to create viable small businesses in developing countries, it has served its purpose.

Small enterprise development: Policies and programmes, second (revised) edition,

edited by Philip A. Neck and Robert E. Nelson
Management Development Series No. 14

Entrepreneurship is a powerful resource whose contribution to economic growth can be tremendous. Small enterprises have a major role to play in the socio-economic fabric of any country, industrialised or less developed. Therefore, current development theories, as well as policies and programmes, give a prominent place to the stimulation of entrepreneurial initiative and to the promotion of a viable and dynamic small enterprise sector. This book is a review of current small enterprise development policies and programmes, as applied in countries with various socio-economic settings. It is intended for planners and policy-makers, but will also be useful for many other persons concerned with the promotion of small enterprises and entrepreneurial initiative.

Vocational rehabilitation for women with disabilities, by Sheila Stace

In both developed and developing countries disabled women experience dual discrimination - firstly because of their sex and secondly because of their disability This monograph concentrates on the problems facing the world's 160 million disabled women in gaining entry to vocational rehabilitation and training programmes, and employment. It also highlights the lack of career opportunities. The author suggests that this discrimination could be overcome by such measures as further research, greater flexibility of entry conditions for rehabilitation, training and employment, the extension of programmes of action and changes in public attitudes.
