Abstract:West African small-scale industry (rural and urban) provides the bulk of employment and contributes significantly to the value-added of the manufacturing sector. However, the future role of the small-scale industrial sector in the development process will depend importantly on the economic viability of small enterprises.

Specifically discussed are problems relating to conceptualization and problems of goal-setting, keeping of adequate records for accounting purposes, organization of business and inventory control. This followed by a comparative appraisal of channels for providing management training for small enterprises in West Africa. Notes, ref., sum.
