Small Business Questionnaire
A small business questionnaire is formulated to ensure that an investor has every detail required in the proper management of a small business in place. Apart from this, the questionnaire is also used by research companies to gauge the business knowledge of small-scale entrepreneurs. Data gathered from surveys where such questionnaires are used is used by government or the private sector to gauge the level of success in small businesses and when necessary, the data forms a basis for training small-scale business men in some of the identified weak areas. Usually, small-scale business people do not pay as much attention to business or marketing plans as do big investors.
