Abstract

The topic of training in small businesses has progressed a long way from its humble beginnings and currently it occupies a central position within the wider training debate. The main motive to train in small businesses relates to gaining and sustainable competitive advantage under constrained resource-allocation conditions. Much of the training provided in small firms is reactive rather than proactive and reflects the informal management style preferred by most small business owner/managers. It is suggested that training initiative should be aimed directly at the specific needs of small business owner/managers and their workforce. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
