“Guru” Program Series: SME Technovation and Productivity (STeP) Program
In 2014, Murdoch University was selected by Singapore’s Standards, Productivity and Innovation Board (SPRING) to research, analyse and benchmark productivity and innovation practices in manufacturing SMEs. The $0.5m research initiative engaged with over 200 SMEs. The results of this study have been used to inform this SME Technovation and Productivity (STeP) programme.
STeP has been designed for SME managers and leaders who are in the process of transition. This transition can evolve in more ways than one. Executives transitioning between middle management and senior management roles or individuals transitioning into roles with people management responsibilities need to take the time to reflect on their own mental models and worldviews to be able to chart their leadership journey.
