Needs identification

Major projects, mostly supported by the EU, went on, and are still going on, in diverse fields from classic knowledge-competence-skill development of SMEs to handling generational changes, from family businesses to SME-mentor training developments or from legal-corporate support to sustainability issues.
Not only have the topics varied in this project chain but also pedagogical approaches have overarched traditional classroom training, e-learning and blended-learning courses, and mentor supports by internationally certified mentors.
The genesis of each project could be found in the precursors and the ramifications of each project, which gave birth to new project ideas.

One of the important fallouts of the mentioned cooperation chain was that accountability of the SMEs leaves much to be desired in general and that reporting practices hardly go beyond financial reporting in particular. In fact, more integrated reporting, incorporating the process of integrated thinking, on capabilities (knowledge, competences, skills, experience, etc.) is needed.
