LIFE CYCLE OF A MSME WHAT IS AN MSME MSME is an entrepreneur Explores and finds an opportunity. Builds upon it as a business venture. Identifies and organises all the required resources. Accepts both the risks and rewards associated with the venture.
Development of Entrepreneurship Earliest Period- Marco Polo Middle Ages- Theater, Architectural Works 17 th Century- Mississippi Company 18 th Century- Edison & Whitney 19 th & 20 th Centuries – Organize/Operate – Innovate
The Entrepreneurial Revolution “We are in the midst of a silent revolution – a triumph of the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of humankind throughout the world.” “I believe its impact on the 21 st century will equal or exceed that of the Industrial Revolution on the 19 th and 20 th.” -- Jeffry A. Timmons ( The Entrepreneurial Mind, 1989) In his February 24th State of the Union Address, Barack Obama publicly declared that “The future of our economy relies on the imagination of our Entrepreneurs.” State of the Union Address Many people around the world are calling for an “entrepreneurial revolution” to fix social and economic problems. This call naively assumes that more entrepreneurs are needed to address these issues.
7 Common Challenges- faced by MSME for attaining sustainable ecosystem
1. Problem: Failed/Repeatative product line –a mundane activity. Solution: Try adopting new product lines gradually rather than all at once, suggests Jonathan Fields, social entrepreneur and author of two books,Jonathan Fields 2. Problem: Shady suppliers or customers. Solution: Take precautions. Have network of suppliers lined 3. Problem: Too much paperwork. Solution: Outsource and use effective technology. 4. Problem: Outmoded business model. Solution: Listen to the market adapt for it. 5. Problem: Doing what you love or wear too many hats-Jack of all. Solution: Research. It's easy to mistake your own enthusiasm for market opportunity 6. Problem: Financing. Solution: Have something real– to show potential investors. "Make sure investors feel it as opportunity now to get involved," suggests John Friess, Journey Gym's co-founder and CEO. 7. Problem: Too many competitors, not enough differentiation. Solution: Find a niche. It is a trendy prescription. Can U see common chord in the solutions- Be creative in ascertaining the solutions
So can we say they all are ----- DESIGN CHALLENGES The challenges in the minds The challenges in the approach The challenges in systems The challenges in the processes The challenges in the inputs The challenges in the output

MANUFACTURING CLUSTERS TRADITIONAL CLUSTERS – more than 200 years, some examples Textile – Handloom /Printing- 600 Firozabad –glass 400 Moradabad- brass300 Khurja- pottery 300 Aligarh- locks Rampur - knifes MODERN CLUSTERS – about 100 years some examples Ambala- Scientific & home Appliances. Jagadhari – stainless steel. Machine tools –Ludhiana. Surgical tools & equipments- Bhiwani.
MANUFACTURING CLUSTERS TRADITIONAL CLUSTERS – more than 200 years old, some characteristics Large broad based markets Emotionally rich designs Traditional manufacturing practices. Strong production systems may be time consuming & involve drudgery System is deeply embedded emotionally. MODERN CLUSTERS – more than 100 years, some characteristics Market is specific –focus on functional items. Sales is on technical specifications Thinking /approach is with a systematic processes. Comparatively faster production systems may be not sturdy
Case study of two MSME sectors Textile Industry –an age old cluster. Scientific Instruments cluster Ambala – a modern cluster.
Second largest producer of textiles and garments after China. Second largest producer of cotton in the world. Second largest employer in India after agriculture – Direct Employment to 35mn.people Constitutes about 12% of India’s exports. Contributes about 14% to Industrial production. Contributes about 4% to GDP. Investment made in Textile sector since launch of TUFs scheme is Rs.208000 crores till June 2010 Indian Textile Industry Size -2010: Source : Ministry of Textiles –India/Technopack units in USD bn. Indian Textile Industry– a current scenario
India’s current USD 52 Billion Domestic Textile and Apparel industry has the potential to grow to reach USD 140 Billion by 2020 ----- reflecting a substantial growth…
Indian textiles- export potentials Textile manufacturing continues to shift to low cost Asian countries. Increasing cost of labor, scarcity of raw material and other key resources like power, rising domestic demand is restricting China’s ability to further increase its share in the world trade thereby making it as fourth largest importer of textiles. Buyers need to diversify sourcing risk. Availability of raw materials, especially cotton, integrated operations and design skills in India. Favorable demographics, rising income and population levels, and rising retail penetration in other developing countries (other Asia countries, Latin America etc.) Hence…Good Opportunity for India to Increase Exports TOO….
Raw materials- eco friendly, natural, regenerated, organically produced etc Weaving processes- technological interventions to retain the essence but remove drudgery Dyeing/ Printing processes and other embellishments - use of azo free/ natural dyes Product diversifications – to cater to wider market segments Some innovations with respect to markets.
A case study – to promote sustainable textiles in a grass root handloom cluster while adapting to the expected market demand in the journey of sustenance.
Handloom weavers of Barabanki, U.P Design developments planned and executed under the Integrated Handloom Cluster Development, pilot project of o/o DC Handlooms, Ministry of Textiles, GOI, with a vision to inculcate sustainable development in the textile cluster of Barabanki..
Traditional products– of the cluster Is the low priced rayon stoles and Arafat scarves priced at Rs 35 to Rs 42/- including raw material and wages of weaving. Strength of the cluster – Weavers have great weaving skills and knowledge of weaving structures and patterns and motivation to adapt to new designs. Challenge was - For sustainability they have to adapt and cater to wider market segment unlike their present image of creating only low cost, cheap quality stoles ie TO CREATE AND ESTABLISH A NEW BRAND – with emphasis on Sustainable Development- the future milestone.
DEVELOPMENT in WEAVING PATTERNS & COLOUR COMBINATION Stoles
INTRODUCTION OF SURFACE EMBELLISHMENT SKILLS Block Printing
INTRODUCTION OF ALTERNATE YARNS in Weaving- Introduced alternative natural yarns like ---- Eri silk, Muga silk,& Bamboo yarns in weaving stoles. Attempts were also made to use Mulberry silk and wool.
IMPACT of this intervention The cluster could adapt for a wider and varied market segment by positioning its products differently. A much improved range and quality of products in terms of weaving quality, dyeing and colouring and design and colour combinations. Great improvements in the per stole wages earned by the weaver. They are almost able to get three times the price of the stoles with quality and design interventions.

The cluster Ambala-- today The Ambala Scientific Instruments Cluster almost 100 years old but the complacency among the players, is today struggling for survival. It was a flourishing industrial centre until the late 1990s, but the rapid pace of change in the business environment in post-liberalisation India and growing competition in the international market has jeopardised its future. Over the years, manufacturing activity in the cluster has declined in the absence of technology upgradation. The technology used, is obsolete. The demand for scientific instruments is nevertheless increasing. So those who once manufactured them now find it more profitable to import products from China and trade in them. About 400 of the 1,000 enterprises in this hundred-year-old cluster are now purely traders. Scientific instrument manufacturing runs on low margins, We have consequently lost the competitive edge in the global market as well as the domestic market,” he said. The cluster, has the potential to yield annual sales revenue of Rs10,000 crore, but is doing business of only about Rs1,000 crore. A large chunk of this is accounted for by a couple of big players which have the funds to invest in R&D.
Need is to achieve the unified ecological approach- ----Taking the positive strengths of both clusters systems – The robustness and emotional stability of the traditional clusters and the technology advancement and future vision of the Modern clusters in the most balanced harmonious manner.
A FOOD FOR THOUGHT IS’ NT IT IS AMAZING, JUST BY TAKING A DECISION OF USING DESIGN AS A TOOL FOR THE SUSTAINED DEVELOPMENT OF OUR LOCAL MSME WHAT WE ARE FURTHER DOING IS STOPPING MIGRATION FROM SMALL TOWNS TO CITIES. STOPPING CORRUPTION & MAL PRACTICES. MAKING OUR VILLAGES/TOWNS MORE SOCIO ECONOMIC POWERFUL. PROVIDING BETTER STANDARD OF LIVING FOR ALL. INCREASING THE FLOW OF FOREIGN CURRENCY IN OUR COUNTRY. BY FOLLOWING THE TRADITIONAL GREENER PRACTICES WE WOULD CONTRIBUTE OUR PART IN SAVING MOTHER EARTH.
The biggest challenge is then to keep abreast with the changing paradigm to be able to ADAPT INNOVATE and ADOPT THANK YOU ranjanbindoo@ yahoo.co.in; email@example.com
