- Workshop education in business planning is one of the most important tools of transition from a centrally planned economy to a market economy. Business planning progressed from a “buzz word” among Polish Extension advisors in 1991 to more than 50,000 business plans completed by the end of 1994. An interactive workshop, transferrable to any transition economy, allowed participants to enter a workshop with data and prior experience in a command economy and emerge with a plan to implement in a market economy.
