In today’s world of corporate downsizing, smaller margins, and focus on bottom lines, more people than ever are deciding to start their own businesses. Whether new to the entrepreneur experience or a seasoned veteran, Mike Hitchen Consulting specializes in providing tools and strategies to aid small businesses that want to grow and succeed in today’s ever changing marketplace. Office systemization, market strategies, and business development are just some of the many services available to help reach targets and projected growth.

The New Age Of Consulting
Enjoy the flexibility and confidentiality of internet consultancy – without compromise to the quality of service! Though based in Australia, MHC enjoys close business relationships with small businesses from all over the world. One of the many benefits to clients is “global knowledge and expertise” that will not only aid in day to day operations, but will also broaden the awareness of how small businesses can take advantage of global markets.

Clients may find the "laid back" approach of MHC a bit different than that of other consultants. This approach aids in the fostering of relationships and partnerships that are essential to the success of this consultancy. MHC strives not only to be “business driven” but “people driven”. It is not only the bottom line that is important, but also the ability to connect people and meet individual needs.

Small businesses face many obstacles. Add to this long hours, family obligations, anxiety and/or lack of direction and this often spells disaster for many businesses. As many as 10-15% of small businesses fail every year. MHC understands these obstacles and will work side by side with businesses to not only overcome these obstacles, but customize a program to enable businesses to run more effectively and meet the needs and increase their customer base.

Previous Clients
In addition to small business and "start up's," Training Managers and directors from Pioneer InternationalSalvation Army and St George Bank, have previously enjoyed and benefited from services such as our seminars and workshops.

Training Small Groups

Gone are the days when training involved putting a few chairs in a room to accommodate often and unwilling participants. Mike Hitchen Consulting has put together a series of articles to assist trainers assess training needs and present relevant, interesting courses.
Below is a brief overview of Training Need Analysis.

Once you have identified that a training need exists and you have identified a job description or competency standard for that particular job/role then you can carry out a Training Needs Analysis (TNA).

A TNA will help you identify the gaps between what the person can actually do and what they are required to do.

A TNA will help you design your training session to suit the needs of participants. Listed below are steps you will need to take to conduct a TNA.

1. Identify competencies that relate to specific jobs/roles.

2. Identify competencies held by individuals for specific jobs/roles.

3. Compare competencies currently held by individuals with those competencies required for the job/role.

4. Outline the training requirements in sufficient detail and in an appropriate format so that a training program can be prepared.

There are a number of ways that you can gather information for you TNA.* Organisational records.
