The U.S. Small Business Administration is offering two new virtual training courses to help you navigate the COVID-19 national crisis and provide you strategies and tactics for managing contract changes, maximizing remote work effectiveness, staying afloat, identifying new opportunities, managing cashflow in a crisis, and growing your businesses in a down market in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic and U.S. National Emergency. Please view the attached flyer for SBA’s new COVID-19 National Emergency training brought to you by SBA’s Office of Business Development through the 7(j) Management and Technical Assistance Program.
The new COVID-19 National Emergency training curriculum consists of the following two free live web-based courses:
Course 1: Responding to the Immediate Crisis – This ninety (90) minute course provides valuable information from industry experts about strategic risk management and communications, government resources and assistance available to small businesses during the national emergency, remote work effectiveness and information security, and discusses ways to mitigate contract performance risk. As a small business firm, you will hear about how to strategically position your business for each phase of change you encounter now, and as you look 3, 6, and 9 months ahead.
Course 2: Staying Afloat Through a National Crisis – This 90 minute course provides valuable information from industry experts about cashflow management and cost-cutting strategies, planning effective human resource practices in response to the crisis (navigating staggered layoffs and corporate communication) business development in tough economic times, contingency contracting regulations, and lessons learned from previous budget sequestrations and government shutdowns.
Participants can join from a variety of devices, including desktop or laptop (PC, Mac and Linux), smartphone and tablet (iOS and Android). This makes it easy for busy small business executives to join the training from virtually anywhere without installing additional software. This virtual training covers everything from the basics of doing business with the federal government to more in-depth discussions such as identifying opportunities using e-tools, an overview of relevant federal acquisition regulations, joint ventures, mentor-protégé agreements, and much more.
