Reasons for Low Productivity of Dubai’s SMEs Low focus of businesses on improvements / reengineering of business processes to improve efficiency Limited focus of businesses on training, development and up skilling of employees due to transient nature of workforce Limited adoption by businesses of advanced enterprise level ICT systems (ERP, CRM) Source: Dubai Statistics Center, SMEs in New Zealand: Structure and Dynamics 2011; Department of Statistics Singapore; Small & Medium Business Administration, South Korea
