UTS Business School in Sydney is conducting a survey of SME business owners to explore options for a new industry-based, specifically tailored program catering for the new era in manufacturing and technology.
Management and leadership skills are important for the future productivity of innovative firms. The University of Technology, Sydney, with the support of the NSW Business Chamber and Australian Industry Group, has identified a gap in sector specific management and leadership training needed to boost future competitiveness.
Transformation of an organisation in the current context involves more than competing on costs. For example, revision of a firm’s strategy to focus more specifically on emerging business models. This requires up-skilling to facilitate new ways of thinking.
UTS is inviting SME business owners from manufacturing and technology based companies to submit their feedback to inform the development of a new sector specific management degree at UTS.
