Co-ordinate effetively :
As alluded to my comments on value proposition, many corporates and development agents approach micro-enterprise inclusion in a siloed manner. They typically think of value for their own organisation and not necessarily the beneficiary micro-enterprise. Accenture has seen programmes, ambitious and small, fail due to poor co-ordination, mainly due to ineffective communication and expectation management.
Part of this siloed approach breeds an unsustainable intervene and leave approach. He alignment and commitment to long-term investment and incremental wins is so critical to success.
