This program contributes to provide a solution to a concern of the business world, namely the performance of coaching SMEs
This certification program for consultants called C’HCB, set up by the HCB, was intended for individual consultants recruited for rural entrepreneurship resource centers (CREER) and to provide business development services (BDS) to rural micro-enterprises (MER). They received several training modules over 360 hours. These included consulting engineering, entrepreneurship, business diagnostics, business plan development, service marketing, and field coaching.
Modules that the sponsor, Issaka Kargougou, judged very qualitative for being a good consultant. According to him, this program contributes to provide a solution to a concern of the business world, namely the performance of coaching SMEs. Because, although the offer is quite diversified,” he explained, “we still need to focus on the quality of interventions for more impact, and these consultants trained and certified by the HCB is a major event. A major event because beyond the diplomas, it is skills and abilities that are approved and validated through this program. This is why the sponsor has urged his godchildren to work in order to provide quality solutions to the problems faced by SMEs in Burkina Faso and even in Africa.
It is true that these consultants are trained and certified by the HCB, but it is the quality of their service that will offer them a job. This is what Lacina Ki said when the question of hiring these new skills was raised. For him, these trained consultants will go on the job market by making the difference with those who call themselves consultants without having the necessary baggage, because they have been trained on specific themes to meet the expectations of companies. “From the moment their services are of quality, this is what will allow companies to develop and when a company develops, it rhymes with job creation. The best way to get a job is the quality of your service,” said the HCB’s general manager.
He goes on to say that in the business world, entrepreneurs always need technicians to accompany them in the development of their companies and these consultants are resource people who can do this job well. This is why, he adds, the MEBF wanted to show its willingness to support them by providing them with quality consultants who are experts in the field of SMEs and who can accompany them in all phases of development of their companies.
Thanks to the quality of the training received, the delegate of this second promotion, Yssouf Dera, for his part, reassured the trainers of their willingness to work to make the Burkinabe private sector more dynamic and competitive.
