“This program gave us a great opportunity to realize our ideas. I have attended the trainings with great enthusiasm. I must say every lecture differed from the other one. From this point of view, I find such trainings important.”
The participants of the program had been divided into 6 teams. They presented their ideas; spoke about their necessity, as well as the provisions contained in the program. Most of the programs presented related to the production. When presenting their work, teams pointed out the importance of market positioning, customer satisfaction, and financial planning as an important component.
