An independent Scotland and the SME business sector

An independent Scotland and the SME business sector

For those of us in business involved in running small , medium, or large enterprises, the thing we think about most is our ability to make a profit. In my own case I would expand that to a two word phrase: ‘profitable growth’.

As a Scottish engineering graduate and, after an indirect career path via Germany, I now find myself running a North Ayrshire based SME operating within the environmental sector, electronics recycling to be precise. When I joined Datec Technologies, we employed around 20 and operated from one small site.

We now operate two sites (one in Sweden) employing around 100 in total (the majority in Scotland). The sector we operate in depended initially on the substantial electronic/IT manufacturing industry which existed here in Scotland some 10-15 years ago (and longer). But that industry – like so many here – has largely disappeared from our shores. Many readers will recall the corridor running through our central belt was known as Silicon Glen.

Fortunately, as a SME with an outward-looking vision, we have been able to differentiate ourselves in the face of change: we have been agile, flexible, and adaptive in going out and winning the new business to replace that which disappeared from Scotland. And so because of our agility and small size, we have been able to adapt and grow – profitably.

Personally, this has been satisfying on several levels: importantly our business has some eighty or so families, living mostly in North Ayrshire, earning a wage from a local well established company in the environmental sector, that operates at the vanguard of electronics, IT, and telecommunications recycling. So as well as meeting profit targets, I am proud of the role our business plays socially and environmentally here in North Ayrshire and in Scotland as a whole.

I often wonder if that is why we have such a good fit with our Swedish colleagues – those shared values of profit, coupled with social and environmental awareness and concern.

Having travelled there on many many occasions, I often remark to my Swedish friends on their quiet optimism in how they go about things. Their results speak for themselves: major leading world corporations such as Tetra-Laval, ABB, IKEA, Volvo, Bofors, Electrolux, Ericsson, H&M. But crucially the country also a highly able and established SME sector.  And that is all without oil and gas. And also without a banking crisis – which was meant to be global (it wasn’t).

In setting up our own subsidiary in central Sweden two years ago, where we now employ 20, I have come to the conclusion that Sweden works as a small independent northern European country, largely in part because of the short communication connections in their society between the SME business owners/decision makers and their elected representatives who govern – and crucially – who have the power to make a difference for businesses.

These short societal connections allow Sweden’s business community and politicians to shape things together for the good of the SME environment there. In Scotland, by contrast, the majority of fiscal/regulatory frameworks we operate under are decided by folk far away in London.  Even if they do know what is right for the Scottish SME business community, the imbalance I see from the status quo means that the Scottish SME view would not be represented in equal measure in those decisions taken in those far-off corridors of power.

Progressing in business involves change and a key part of the positive change we need will be when Scottish businesses have the benefit and influence, via short direct connections to government, here in a Scotland which has full fiscal and regulatory options available to it. That way the changes we want as SMEs can be heard and acted upon.

Some people have said the advantages for business in an independent Scotland would be tenuous and vague.   My Swedish friends don’t think of independence that way, they would use words such as: solid, strong and successful. Which is why I will be voting Yes in 2014.

Well said Doug. As a retired part owner of an SME I am sure this sector will see the advantages that independence for Scotland will bring. I too visited Scandinavia regularly and was impressed by the short lines to government that gave SME's n edge - but I was also impressed by the cohesive society in these small countries,

This was interesting to me--Lou

Excerpt:

"In a nutshell: If knowledge is information, wisdom is the understanding and application of that knowledge and insight is the awareness of the underlying essence of a truth.

Sadly we can gain a lifetime of knowledge, yet never see the wisdom in it. We can be wise, but still miss the deeper meaning.

 

Christopher Reiss does a great job of summing up the differences:

Knowledge is measuring that a desert path is 12.4 miles long.

Wisdom is packing enough water for the hike.

Insight is building a lemonade stand at mile 6...."

Rediscovering Leadership: Service Versus Self-Interest

Rediscovering Leadership: Service Versus Self-Interest | The World Transformation | Scoop.it

 

Whatever happened to leadership? Have all the great leaders gone from the world scene? Are leaders born, or do they emerge in appropriate circumstances?

 

A few years ago the London Sunday Times ran an article with the title “Whatever Happened to Real Leaders?” It read in part: “The foreign secretary was a stuffed shirt. But the prime minister was not even that: ‘he was just a hole in the air.’ The words are George Orwell’s, applied to Lord Halifax and Stanley Baldwin, in the late 1930s. What resonance they have today! . . . What the country needs is leadership, and this is true of the Western world as a whole.”

 

The article continued, “The gap between the desirable and the real has never been as great in this respect. As you open the newspapers or watch the television news, is there a single political leader in the West whose words you would expect to remember? Would you expect to learn anything from them? Do you expect them to do anything inspiring or creative, or even just the right thing? We have reached a real low point in leadership, lower than at any other time in recent history. . . . ‘I sowed dragons, and I reaped fleas,’ said Nietzsche.” It’s a powerful plea for the kind of leadership that can deliver humanity from the grip of its many problems and evils.

Whatever happened to leadership? Have all the great leaders gone from the world scene? Are leaders born, or do they emerge in appropriate circumstances?

John Michel's curator insight, March 20, 2013 8:17 PM

True leadership is and always has been a selfless action. It involves taking yourself out of the picture and considering the needs of others. It is a way of thinking that takes other people into account even when your own needs are pressing.

Your Brand: The Next Media Company and The Relevance Of Content Curation

Your Brand: The Next Media Company and The Relevance Of Content Curation | The World Transformation | Scoop.it

Excerpt from guest post by Michael Brito, author of "Your Brand: The Next Media Company", published on Brian Solis Blog:
"There are four fundamental truths shaping today’s digital ecosystem, which I outline in my upcoming book, Your Brand: The Next Media Company.

1. There is a content and media surplus in the market place. There’s no shortage of advertising, marketing messages, mobile devices or social interruptions trying to command our attention, daily.

2. There is an attention deficit in the minds of consumers. Our brains are finite and we can only consume a small amount of content and then actually make some sense of it.

3. Consumers’ lives are dynamic and extremely unpredictable making extremely difficult for brands to reach them with a message.

4. All consumers are influential and aid their peers down the purchase funnel.

If you are a marketer, there is absolutely nothing stopping you from creating, aggregating, and curating content and then posting it in social media channels without having a content strategy.

You can hire consultants, agencies, and even third-party journalists and bloggers using platforms like Contently or eByline to create content and campaigns on your behalf.

Your brand must become a content organization.

This is much easier said than done, of course. Here are four, very easy considerations to get you started.
1. Why...
2. What...
3. How...
4. Where...
