However, measuring productivity is often considered a difficult task for industries in the services sectors. While the ESC report set a target of doubling the number of local SMEs with revenues of over SGD million to 1, in ten years, attainment of the target is still far.

Employees especially the younger employees are appreciating on-the-job training to implement productivity tools, as it improves their profile, and also makes them more employable. Keeping in mind that the entrepreneurs, customers and employees are the key stakeholders in productivity improvement success, it is clear that in comparison to the past, all three of them have recognized the need to implement tools, and also have something to gain from the implementation.
