The Business Wise programme is designed to provide a thorough understanding of how a business works from a financial point of view, and how every employee can contribute to improved business performance by improving quality and reducing waste.


Pictorial graphics in a delegate workbook, as well as a cash flow simulation model are used to communicate basic business concepts.  These concepts are related to the job through extensive use of structured group exercises.  The programme forms the basis for an Application Project which requires every employee to analyse his/her job for quality problems.  The project facilitates transfer of learning and provides the opportunity for significant cost savings.


Course duration is two days.  Presented in company.  Further programmes can be conducted by licenced instructors on a modular basis.


All non-management employees who have less than a Grade 10 level of education.  The programme accommodates semi-literate and illiterate employees, as well as those with a greater degree of literacy.
