People with enterprising skills can be a real asset to an organisation and these skills provide the basis for developing the entrepreneurial skills needed to run an enterprise. Enterprise is a key government focus, and is set to form an important part of the UK?s global economic status, both now and in the future. Enterprise skills provide a fantastic progression pathway into a number of roles in an organisation, and are transferable into all businesses.
