The commercial efficiency program aims to support enterprises to better understand the concept of commercial efficiency. This training program reflects international Know-how and other best practices related to the challenges, methodologies, practices and performance indicators that need to be considered by each water supply and / or disposal and / or wastewater treatment company which wants to be financially self-sustainable in delivering its services to end-users. Therefore, this training does not only concern the establishment of good practices for commercial efficiency, but also the development of a business planning model that quantitatively links commercial performance to financial performance.
