Amongst the many resolutions being carried out in the new year, one of the most common is to start a new business.  Having wrapped up the festive season the fresh year is an ideal time to start afresh and unleash your budding entrepreneur.  That said, it’s essential before starting a business great or small that you have some idea of what you’re getting into – lack of proper planning is one of the biggest causes of new business failure!

Here’s a list of some of the ADL courses that might be most useful to a business starting up in 2016:

Business PlanningAs the old saying goes, if you fail to plan you plan to fail.  As true in business as it is in any other sphere of life, coming up with a solid business plan is essential both to help yourself with a road map to your enterprises future as well as to convince outside members that you know what you’re doing.  Essential for when talking to the bank or other investors for finance!

Those with a plan already and looking to get started may be interested in our Entrepreneurship course.  Written for individuals looking to start their own businesses, this comprehensive short course is an ideal primer to many of the things new business owners need to know including searching for opportunities, market research and intellectual property.

Small Business Enterprise and Small Business Financial Management are an excellent pair of complimentary courses to help those already running a small business.  The former focuses on the actual running of the company while the latter on the money matters.  Ideal for partners looking to spread the responsibility of a new venture.

Money is of course essential to businesses and so every business needs a bookkeeper to keep accurate records of moneys taken and spent.  The ICB Bookkeeping courses offered by ADL are both excellent primers for those who need to understand it as well as a recognized qualification for those looking to begin new jobs as fully qualified bookkeepers.

Modern businesses need to be literate for the Internet age and eCommerce is the ideal course to help you either launch a new online venture or take an existing one online.  Another serious problem young businesses can face is difficulties with legal matters for which a course in Legal Terminology can help provider the knowledge you need to navigate this confusing aspect of business.

All successful companies from multi-nationals down to small businesses require substantial leadership skills if they are to succeed.  A good leader can resolve conflict in the workplace and inspire workers to deliver greater value for the organization.  Additionally, an ethical approach to business is fast becoming essential especially for start-ups.   Ethics then is a great course for individuals looking to bring a moral dimension to their enterprise.

Lastly, for those looking for a smaller and easier business idea, why not consider setting up as a Bed and Breakfast?  This short course in Bed and Breakfast Management will help you launch your new business or help guide you if you have recently started in the trade.

Whatever your business dream this 2016, a course from ADL can help make your vision a reality.
