demands exceptional leadership
SMEs looking to succeed in developing their innovation roadmap need strong leadership across the
C-suite level. Whether overseeing a specific division — finance, technology, human resources, or sales — or the organization as a whole, effective leaders are strategic thinkers responsible for handling myriad business challenges as they arise
From competing for specialized talent to meeting the demands of globalization, senior executives need strong leadership skills and a solid understanding of business fundamentals. But many Canadian SMEs — especially those in the start-up phase — lack the time, resources, and personnel to meet the challenges faced by game-changing innovators.
