Small Business Management and Ownership. Volume Four. Mini-Problems in Entrepreneurship.
The mini-problems presented in this volume are provided to augment the introductory course, "Minding Your Own Small Business," and the advanced course, "Something Ventured, Something Gained," in small business ownership and management. They can also be used in conjunction with other instructional materials in small business courses. Mini-problems are of six types: women and minority entrepreneurs; ethics, communication skills, recordkeeping; and self-assessment. All the problems address common business situations and skills needed by entrepreneurs. Most have direct business content; a few are presented as "games" designed to promote skill development. The mini-problems are flexible; each can be completed in 10 minutes or a full class period, according to the preference of the teacher and the class, and the time available. The educational format of each mini-problem is identified (e.g., small group discussion, role play, brainstorming exercise, written exercise, pencil-and-paper problem, verbal pantomime, individual exercise, etc.), although formats can be changed as desired. Both teacher materials and student materials for the mini-problems are included in the document. (KC)
