Namibia Business Journal
Watch for the upcoming issues of the Namibia Business Journal (NBJ), it is destined to have a fresh new focus, to provide thought-provoking and progressive pieces written by leading management thinkers, consultants and practitioners. We hope the NBJ provides practical insights and suggestions that you will be able to apply to your own organization or situation. Managers and entrepreneurs, alongside business students and educators, should find expert thoughts on topics such as leadership, marketing and strategy, among others in the NBJ. On this stretch, we hope to make it an even more interactive resource for our international audience of executives, corporate directors, managers, business academics and students.
The new NBJ will not publish articles focusing on current issues on a bi-monthly basis. Instead, it will offer feature content offering practical takeaways on management issues and research as well as exclusive NBJ Interviews and NBJ Insights offering unique analysis of management issues, current events and market trends.
At NBJ, we firmly believe a never-ending process of reflection and learning is the key to good leadership and management.” The new NBJ will serve as a hub for research with practical applications, expert views and compelling thought leadership. No longer tied to current affairs topics, the publication will be able to post timely feature content always targeted at improving the practice of management. The new focus should make the NBJ more flexible and nimble. We can publish relevant articles responding quickly to global events.

SME Coaching Scheme
The SME Coaching Scheme is an impact oriented program. It is focused on SMEs with potential and giving them business innovation coaching. Beneficiaries can receive up to 15 days of coaching (3 days at phase 1 and 12 days at phase 2). Although coaching can be given to any SME, the logic of the scheme itself and the evaluation is biased towards SME with high growth potential through innovation.
The scheme focuses on existing SMEs with growth potential, not start-ups. Firstly, these SMEs already have an ability to operate, rather than having to establish capacity from scratch. Secondly, these SMEs know their market, and will have established distribution channels, enabling them to focus on innovating the product or service itself, rather than having to establish entirely new capabilities. Thirdly, these SMEs can frequently fund themselves organically rather than rely on scheme to bear all associated costs.
Coaches help the beneficiaries to progress over the life cycle of their innovation, from idea to proof of concept, to first pilot application and finally upscaling and expansion. They will empower the SME to cope with challenges such as developing their strategy and organisation, identifying their market and improving ability to attract finance.
Coaching ServicesThe coaching approach is built on a philosophy of "sense and solve" -understanding the context of the company and empowering the management for handling similar challenges in the future on their own.
Based on this philosophy, two distinct coaching services are available:
- Business development: focused on the identification, analysis and evaluation of potential business opportunities, the definition of business segments and the development of an effective marketing mix; and
- Organisational Development: aimed at mobilizing the resources of the SME to ensure the efficiency and performance of the SME as an organisation
