In recent years management training development has secured an increasingly important place in the life of the business managers. In the Arab countries, the management and development efforts have largely been found to be somewhat inadequate and ineffective. Many management-training programmes (MTPs), of an off-the-job nature, have been established in the Palestinian territories (PT), after the peace agreement, in order to find a solution for the apparent lack of managerial strength, especially amongst the small and micro-enterprises (SMEs). Discusses the contribution of these programmes towards the development of these managers by dividing the managerial skills offered into three main categories. The primary data have been generated through a survey of the SME managers who have participated in management development training programmes in Palestine. The results of the study highlighted the question of the importance, interrelationship and interaction of managerial skills used for developing SMEs.
