Exploratory Research on the Development of Industrial Convergence Competency Model (Convergence DNA) for SMEs


In recent days, industrial convergence is playing a greater role for SMEs’ business innovation efforts. In practice, however, it is extremely difficult for SMEs to find a structured model or framework to improve their internal competences to level up their industrial convergence capacity. In this paper, a study on the previous related materials and text mining technique based on the materials are performed to identify keywords for industrial convergence competence model. It is then evaluated by the interview and survey of the selected high performers in industrial convergence area. The authors now recommend the first version of industrial convergence competency model (i.e., Convergence DNA) through the research for future improvement and refinement.
Keywords: Business Innovation, Competency Model, Competences Model, Convergence DNA, Industrial Convergence, Industrial Convergence for SMEs
