Small And Medium Enterprises 

Over the last few decades, especially since the post-liberalisation & globalisation era, India has experienced tremendous growth of small & medium enterprises. So much so that they are often referred to as the “backbone of the Indian economy”. SME business contribute more than 40% employment and 30% GDP of India and are a key element for India to become an economic powerhouse. This is a very exciting time for the small and medium enterprises in India. However, despite over 35 million units across the country, SME businesses in India are yet to prove their mettle globally. Sensing this gap between opportunity & reward, the Indian Government cluster development programs is working with SMEs to enhance productivity, competitiveness & capacity. SMEs have to do their bit as well. In all fairness, majority of the Indian SMEs have still not fully leveraged technology to their business operations. This is one critical aspect which is keeping them away from getting clients internationally.

The common challenges faced by these aspiring & fast growing small & mid-sized business enterprises in India are: 

  • Digitally inactive workforce
  • Working capital constraints
  • Low level of technology adoption
  • Inefficient and unpredictable support services
Many of the SMEs still follow the traditional way of managing their operations. However, there is only so much that you can do manually. Therefore, SMEs often end up with inefficient supply chain management leading to business losses. Experts attribute the reasons for SMEs being unable to scale up, include resistance to change as well as the fear of failure. However, in many cases Change might seem more important than managing fear of failure.
