Future-proofing Australian Manufacturing SMEs

Want to make your manufacturing business more resilient, cost competitive and sustainable?

Now, more than ever, Australian manufacturers & process related industries should be thinking about their businesses in a new way. This workshop is designed specifically for Australian manufacturing & process related industry SMEs to help you assess the current state of your business and identify areas of focus and potential investment to transform and create a future-ready organisation.


The thought provoking content and industry examples in this futuremap® interactive workshop will make you think differently about aspects of your business, including:

  • how it earns/spends revenue,
  • delivers/provides value to customers
  • how it engages/interacts with customers
  • the impact of technology
  • the business ecosystem and supply chain
  • work practices and risk management.


The workshop helps you evaluate the business’s position across 13 key areas of industrial and manufacturing competitiveness to produce a point-in-time self-assessment and report that identifies both immediate, and medium-term, opportunities for growth and potential investment.


This workshop is for Victorian business owners or senior executives (eg. General managers) in a Victorian manufacturing or process related industry (including Food & Beverage, Meat processing, Dairy, Agri-business, Defence, Pharmaceuticals etc).


Developed by the Innovative Manufacturing CRC (IMCRC), futuremap® enables participants to map their maturity levels and capabilities in the areas of:

  • Market positioning
  • Leadership, strategy and change management
  • Innovation and use of technology and
  • Digital manufacturing (Industry 4.0)


Note: In response to the evolving COVID-19 situation, this workshop is being delivered in a virtual (webcast style) format. We invite you to join us at this online event to explore how you can build resilient, cost competitive, sustainable and future-ready organisations.


The futuremap® workshop is limited to 20 Victorian manufacturing & process related industry SMEs, targeted at senior representatives with a maximum of two people per organisation (1 ticket per person).
