BEDD undertakes mentorship program with 115 MC IOSA partners

The Business Enterprise Development Division (BEDD) commenced with the preliminary discussions and initial plant visits to the 115th Managers Course (MC) IOSA partners at the onset of the implementation of UP ISSI’s mentorship program. BEDD’s University Extension Specialists, including the Division Head, Engr. Leoncio T. Cubillas, Jr., are purposely assigned as business mentors to five pilot sites, matching their areas of expertise with the IOSA partners’ needs. The mentorship program forms a learning and development partnership between the mentor from UP ISSI and the mentee from the 115th MC IOSA partners and involves the transfer of technology and knowledge from the mentor to the mentee, and vise versa, as well as the provision of consultancy and advisory services. At the end of the three-month engagement, UP ISSI through BEDD is optimistic that the short-term recommendations relevant to the improvement of the enterprise would have been realized.

The IOSA, or Integrated Organizational Survey and Assessment, is the final output of the MC. It aimed to give the participants a hands-on experience in conducting an organizational assessment in the four areas of management: marketing; production or operations; organization and human resource/personnel; and financial management. The participants then prepared the IOSA report based on their findings and analysis, which was evaluated by a panel of industry experts. The mentorship program between UP ISSI and the IOSA partners will be provided afterwards to address pertinent short-term recommendations in the IOSA reports. The mentorship program is a free service of UP ISSI to its IOSA partners as part of the former’s advocacy of advancing and promoting Philippine MSMEs. In addition, the Training and Entrepreneurship Education Division (TEED) will also provide a 50% discount voucher off any regular training program at UP ISSI to address recommendations in further education and training.
