Design of a large system development project
CSEND advised the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in London on the design of a strategy to create a network of Business and Training Centres (BTCs) in Russia.
The result of this process is the "Morozov Project", consisting of over 30 Russian Business and Training Centres (BTCs) which were twinned with foreign organisations to help strengthen the institutional capabilities of the BTCs in areas of management consulting and entrepreneurial training. The mission of each BTC is to help create jobs and contribute to a more vibrant local economy by acting as a business skills training and resource centre. BTC stakeholders include local entrepreneurs, managers of recently privatised companies, and local officials. The ultimate goal of each BTC is to become economically self-supporting, and contribute to the sustainable development of Russia's economy.
