The Strategic Role of Training for SMEs in Building Sustainable Supply Chains

This LKDF publication, written by Huon Curtis, Senior Research Fellow at the Australian National University, explores the pivotal role of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in driving economic growth and resilience. Despite their significance, SMEs face vulnerabilities due to limited resources and access to formal training. We highlight the critical importance of training in enhancing SME performance, particularly in the face of technological disruptions. Additionally, we delve into the complex relationship between innovation, skills development, and policy coordination, offering insights for fostering sustainable growth within SMEs and broader economic development.
