SME strategies for success: A global study that reveals the key drivers of success for SMEs in 2017 and beyond
Client: American Express
This study, based on a survey of 3,200 SMEs in 15 countries, provides a comprehensive view of SME sentiment at a time of heightened uncertainty. The results showed:
Though SMEs are concerned about the threat of political and economic uncertainty, their business outlook is generally optimistic.
Many view technology as a positive force for disruption, presenting new opportunities.
SMEs thrive by exploiting key advantages, which we describe as their Four Aces: Applying technology, Agility, Accelerated innovation, and Attracting talent.
Many SMEs are developing growth strategies by focusing their expertise in niche markets, driving sales growth at home and abroad.
Finance remains a key challenge for SMEs—and a significant opportunity exists for financial providers to assist growing SMEs.
Governments, policy-makers and other agencies can help create conditions that help SMEs prosper. To be effective, however, governments need to understand that different kinds of SMEs have different needs.
Our “SMEs: Equipped to Compete” series shows how SMEs are transforming their businesses to compete in a rapidly-evolving global business environment.
As part of a wider research programme drawing on surveys and interviews, Oxford created a series of infographics and presentations to visualize key findings, focusing on the specific kind of transformations SMEs are undergoing to remain competitive in today's rapidly changing global market.

What sets Risk Masters apart?
The Accenture 2013 Global Risk Management Study examines the perspectives and concerns of executives at nearly 450 companies in eight industry groups and in three major geographic regions. The study also examines the ways Risk Masters stand apart from the others by applying advanced risk management capabilities to achieve competitive advantage.
We produced an extensive set of infographics showing how these Risk Masters direct a pervasive culture of risk management, typically managed by a Chief Risk Officer. This same perspective applies to the subsectors covered by this research, with similar infographics for banking and capital markets, energy and utilities, healthcare and life sciences, insurance, and public services sectors.
