Abstract: Many companies in Hong Kong are moving towards global manufacturing. Most of them are small manufacturing enterprises (SMEs) and need to compete in ‘prompt delivery’ against other global companies. They increase their competitive advantage by shortening the order fulfilment lead time, reducing their cost of production and managing the proximity of distribution. Information systems development as a vehicle to reinvent their business processes can increase competitiveness. Companies may collaborate with universities in industrially sponsored projects helping staff acquire new skills. The universities may take a leading role in assembling the best practices for transfer to their industrial partners. In the process of transfer for assimilation, the academics share a mental model of professional development with executives in the SME.
