Organizing Small Business Programs in Community Colleges.
Nelson, Robert E.; Piland, William E.
This manual contains guidelines for organizing small business programs in community colleges. Following an introductory discussion of the need for such a program both throughout the United States in general and in Illinois in particular, the role of the community college in facilitating small business development is examined. Guidelines are set forth for making decisions in various areas, including purposes/needs, clientele to be served, client characteristics, program objectives, program structure and scope, funding/support, staffing, recruitment and selection, evaluation, and program content. Addressed in detail in the remaining chapters are the following topics: participant needs, program content, advisory committees, needs assessment strategies, financing the program, promoting the program, program details, evaluating the program, and exemplary self-employment programs. Appendixes to the guide include such items as a program intake form, a bibliography on small businesses and entrepreneurship, a small business survey, a timetable for organizing management courses, a small business management seminar, and sample evaluation forms.
