Mr. Haruo Akiyama, business consultant gave us a lecture on effective management of workshops for persons with disabilities.At the beginning of the lecture he mentioned important two points as follows;
- To establish “self-help operation”, workshop activities should be combination of business practice and rehabilitation / social welfare.
- To run a workshop, it is very meaningful to have “business management concept” in the activities.
Mr. Akiyama specially made case study of business plan and practical cash-flow format for this training course.Seven participants including Mr. Maruyama worked very hard just like students. Big thanks to Mr. Akiyama it helped all of us understand the business concept which can apply to management of sheltered workshop. Now we know what “depreciation” is!
