Established in 2000, Enterprise Estonia (EAS) promotes business and regional policy in Estonia and is one of the largest institutions within the national support system for entrepreneurship by providing financial assistance, counseling, cooperation opportunities and training for entrepreneurs, research institutions, the public and non-profit sectors. The project was called to support the leaders of Estonia's ambitious growth companies in designing and implementing integrated development plans.
In 2016 under the framework of the EAS Enterprise Development Program, we helped nearly 30 managers of manufacturing and IC companies to develop a development plan for their organization. Each manager was mentored by a top-management experience mentor for 30 hours.
We implemented tools for strategic and change planning, and included other management members of these organizations in discussions.
- Greater clarity in the company's development goals and resources.
- Development platform and new ideas for the growth of the company.
- Promotion of product innovation and increased export capacity.
"Practical and realistic. The mentor is very helpful in both the development plan and the company's overall strategy and personal counseling."
"The mentor looked at the company with a look of an outsider. Saw what others do not see on a daily basis. For me personally most important was that he encouraged the company to grow and continue in the same way."
