Duration: This module is designed to be completed in approximately 300 minutes (5 hours).
Learning outcomes: By the end of this module, young entrepreneurs will be able to explain the basic concepts of entrepreneurship. They will learn that becoming an entrepreneur is a big task, however all the skills needed for successfully running a business can be learned. They will learn about different ways of assessing entrepreneurial skills and will be able to evaluate their own business intentions and ambitions.
Structure of the module: Entrepreneurs should be encouraged to read the information of the module from the Handbook before the lesson, except for chapter with the practical examples of entrepreneurial self-assessment tests (page #22). Entrepreneurs will have 90 minutes to read the material and you will have 90 minutes to theoretically cover the concepts of the module.
Additional 2 hours are needed to implement the practical examples of the module. You will have a discussion with the entrepreneurs regarding the development of entrepreneurial skills and ways to further improve them. Module will conclude with the presentation of self-assessment tests results.
Keep in mind…
After theoretically covering the topic of entrepreneurial self-assessment tests, you can print out the 5 prepared practical examples of tests and hand them out to young entrepreneurs to fill out. They will show them what entrepreneurial skills they already possess and which they need to work on some more.
Arriving at a conclusive portrait of a typical entrepreneur is very difficult. Therefore, they may score low on the assessment and still be very successful as entrepreneurs.
It is not enough to just have a great business idea, an entrepreneur needs the skills to translate that business idea into a successful business product, process or service. Encourage young entrepreneurs to set skill-building goals that will ultimately help them become more successful in their chosen business. Advise them on how to improve their entrepreneurial profile with training, to always keep their learning and personal development active.
