As an editor of the "SME Knowledge Handbook", it was a proud moment for me to have the same launched by Hon'ble former President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam on April 8, 2008 at a simple function at his residence.
The above handbook was a part of SME CEO Knowledge Series, sponsored by ICICI Bank and CyberMedia. Knowledge is the biggest enabler for SMEs. This handbook covers the 8 challenges that SMEs face in the knowledge economy and has insights by a variety of practitioners, academicians and consultants from the SME domains, as to how they could be overcome.
