Small and medium sized companies are considered to be the most promising way-out of the burning state of the Macedonian socio economy, creating more and better jobs, overcoming unemployment, decreasing poverty and contributing to the development of knowledge based society.
The Management support institute stands behind the idea that any company, regardless of how big or small, needs to have a well-developed organizational strategy, clearly defined company targets, an efficient resource management system, optimized organizational processes and operational effectiveness, effective internal policies and procedures, established performance management systems and an organizational culture that will allow it to manage its people and services so that they excel in the business they are doing.
While well established companies have whole departments running each of these functions separately, small and medium sized companies usually rely on teams of two to three people to perform the full portfolio of management functions. As it may not be realistic to ensure larger teams for performing these functions, MSI offers consultancy services to SMEs to plan and establish each of the aforementioned aspects in their companies, as well as day to day support and mentoring for their current employees to continue to implement and develop them as the company grows.
By developing sound strategic plans, increasing operational effectiveness and improving is marketing and HR functions, SMEs will be able to ensure organizational growth, cut cost, increase investment capital and improve the overall competitiveness of the organization.
Furthermore, MSI offers services for SMEs to access funding opportunities (including information and access to EU programmes), international networking and support in approaching the single market and internationalizing their services.
