Knowledge & Skills

The level of knowledge and skills of the people involved in your venture will set the foundation for the venture’s success. Fortunately, many of these things can be learned and developed with practice and/or training. Identify your strengths and weaknesses in each of the “Knowledge & Skills” Capacity Areas and then create an action plan for developing priority areas utilising relevant resources. You don’t need to be an expert at everything but you do need to know how to acquire the knowledge and skills for your venture, by involving other people who do have the right skills.
