Stronger organisational capabilities can take businesses to the next level. To help members achieve this, SBF offers various platforms focusing on resilience and capability building, process management, leadership development and sustainability.
Training is an essential part in building organisational capabilities. SBF helps members achieve this by providing training services through the SBF Business Institute (SBI). Members with an interest in the African business climate can also tap on the NTU-SBF Centre for African Studies – a think-tank formed in collaboration with Nanyang Technological University.
SBF’s array of programmes is an effective platform to help members address specific business needs. The Business Continuity (BCM) Programme promotes resilience, and provides funding for companies to adopt BCM and ISO 22301 Certification.
Those who want to learn more from established businesses can participate in SBF’s Mentorship Programme, which pairs participants with eminent business leaders who can share their business experience. Young Business Leaders are encouraged to join the Young Business Leaders Alliance to harness friendships and tap on business opportunities. In addition, businesses can opt to participate in SBF’s Partnership for Capability Transformation initiative, aimed at encouraging SMEs and large organisations to co-innovate to build their capabilities.
SBF’s productivity programmes, such as the Mentorship of Accelerating Productivity (MAP) Programme, aim to help companies gain access to government-funded programmes. The Singapore Productivity Awards – a recognition programme spearheaded by SBF – honour companies for achieving excellence in productivity.
