“If you take the right people, ignite their passion to change themselves and their company, then we can transform the way industries work in Karnataka and other regions of our country. I believe that Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) are vital in maintaining an appreciable growth rate in our economy and are the backbone of the financial system. Their contribution to the Indian economy has been phenomenal, with generating employment, fostering equitable economic development, containing regional disparities, and enhancing the export potential of the country.

It is vital to address the skill gap in this sector as the MSMEs play a major role in catalyzing the country’s socio-economic transformation. The skill-building starts with relevant training programs for the MSME leaders (business owners), their key team members (managers & supervisors) and employees (blue collared associates)

Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) took the initiative, and with the support of Bosch, Unbox helped us conceptualize and implement this program. Electronics City Industries’ Association (ELCIA) helped us connect to MSMEs for this specialized training, called SAMRIDHI. The combination of SAMRIDHI’s well-defined training along with the exposure to industry best practices, increase the preparedness of the MSMEs to meet their client’s demands on quality, speed, cost control and people management that lead to an increased profitability. I believe SAMRIDHI will become a model program of development not only in Karnataka but across India. “

SAMRIDHI is a Management Development Program (MDP) customised for managers and supervisors of the MSMEs. The duration of the entire engagement is three-months, with the key objective of the program being the provision of specialised training to develop skills such as, time management, taking ownership and building high performing teams within their departments.

On registration, the participants will be provided with customised ‘SAMRIDHI KIT’, containing the course material such as -

  • Program Brochure
  • Interactive Workbook
  • Custom made Action Plan Booklet
  • CD (Consisting the entire course material)
