Most often, when we think of innovation, we think of new product or technology. Business innovation can be so much more.

For example, the innovation of lean manufacturing has transformed the way many manufacturers organize workflow to make the process as efficient as possible. Also, innovation does not have to be so radical - a series of small incremental improvements is more realistic than attempts at making huge breakthroughs.

What is SME Innovation Stories Series?

This is a talk series that share and analyze case studies of business innovation projects in the SMEs. The objective is to provide inspirations for SME business owners and CEOs on variety of ways they can innovate their business. The discussion will be presented in storytelling form of real-world projects, instead of theories and concepts.

In this session...

We will be featuring business innovation story of a company in the service industry. Our guest speaker will share with you a case study of their transformation initiative in people management — how they evolve their management techniques in order to adapt the modern working landscape in the digital age.

This case study is very relevant to today's SMEs as most of them are still practicing people management in the industrial age that was developed 40 years ago. You will learn how the company position their people as the most important asset, and how they transform their people management process and unlock competitive advantage to become a greater company. This has dramatically reduced their costs of staff turnover and training, and improving their overall workplace experience.
