2 2 Scottish Enterprise Business Plan Introduction Scotland has the ambition to rank among the top quartile of OECD countries for productivity, equality and sustainability by creating a productive, inclusive and globally competitive economy with a high performing labour market.
3 Scottish Enterprise Operating Year Update 3 In 2017, following completion of an end to end review of the enterprise and skills system undertaken by the Scottish Government, a new Strategic Board for Enterprise and Skills was established to help deliver this ambition. With an independent chair, and representation from the private, public and academic sectors, the Strategic Board will seek to maximise the impact of the collective investment we make in enterprise and skills development across Scotland. Overseeing the work of the enterprise and skills agencies (Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Skills Development Scotland, the Scottish Funding Council and the soon to be established South of Scotland Enterprise Agency,) it will support ever-greater collaboration and alignment of our activities, leading to improved outcomes for Scotland. Scottish Enterprise will undertake its strategic and operational planning in line with the Strategic Board s Strategic Plan once developed. In the meantime, we will be attentive to emerging themes and priorities of the Board and will fully engage in supporting the development of the Strategic Plan and the work of the Analytical Unit. A key focus for us this year will be to inform and deliver the collaborative actions agreed by the Strategic Board to improve how we work together and the impact we make. Other work underway that will influence our approach includes: the development of a shared measurement and performance framework for organisations involved in supporting economic development an emerging regional partnership model to more effectively align delivery across Scotland s regions a programme of work to join up support services to make it easier for companies across Scotland to access information, advice and funding in a way that suits them Scotland is Now. A new integrated approach to align and increase the impact of several organisations involved in engaging audiences overseas about Scotland as a place to live, study, visit or do business in the development of the new Scottish National Investment Bank This one-year plan sets out the priorities of Scottish Enterprise for 2018/19 reflecting Scottish Government s Programme for Government and subsequent strategic guidance and sets out our future direction as a national economic development agency. MAXIMISE THE IMPACT OF THE COLLECTIVE INVESTMENT WE MAKE IN ENTERPRISE AND SKILLS DEVELOPMENT ACROSS SCOTLAND
4 4 Scottish Enterprise Business Plan What we will deliver in 2018/19 There are multiple factors impacting on Scotland s economic growth including the wide-spread sense of uncertainty and caution triggered by the UK s decision to leave the European Union. And while the way in which we deliver is changing, Scottish Enterprise s remit remains focused on a number of core outcomes that help to improve Scotland s productivity: Securing more inward investment and capital investment for Scotland; Supporting more companies and sectors to innovate through increased research and development, new products, services, markets and business models; Supporting more companies and sectors to internationalise and compete in growing markets around the world. Underpinning these outcomes is the need for us to ensure that all parts of Scotland both understand and access more opportunities to generate growth and to benefit from growth. We will consider: Who and where benefits - to help tackle inequality and increase the capacity of the economy Job Quality to increase employee wellbeing and increase productivity levels This inclusive approach to growth means we need to think and act very differently about where we invest resources and will be a key feature of the transition we make as an organisation over the coming year. While change is underway, we recognise the critical importance of continuing to deliver an ambitious programme of work to support competitiveness and inclusive growth, particularly in light of the economic challenges and uncertainty faced by business and industry across Scotland. We will continue to work with Scottish Government and others on the impact of Brexit on Scotland s competitive strengths and our export base and continue to work with companies on how they prepare and respond to changes.
5 Scottish Enterprise Operating Year Update 5 This section sets out the key things we want to achieve by the end of this financial year across four delivery themes: MORE INTERNATIONAL TRADE AND INVESTMENT FOR SCOTLAND ACCELERATING BUSINESS GROWTH REALISING MAJOR ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES SUPPORTING A MORE EFFECTIVE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM FOR SCOTLAND Close collaboration is essential to achieve our ambition. We will continue to deliver alongside Scottish Government, public, private and third sector partners at national and regional levels to achieve the priorities set out in this 2018/19 plan and beyond.
6 6 Scottish Enterprise Business Plan More international trade and investment for Scotland Scottish Development International (SDI) is a partnership between the Scottish Government, Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise. While it sits within Scottish Enterprise s operations, it delivers trade and exporting support across Scotland, and leads on attracting new foreign investment into Scotland that delivers growth through new jobs and capital investment. Over the next year, through SDI and our wider operations, we will be seeking to deliver up to 8000 jobs across Scotland from Foreign Direct Investment, focusing specifically on jobs that pay the living wage and support fair work. In addition, we will work with partners to develop approaches with existing and new investors to enhance employment opportunities across all regions including supporting more young people into work. This will enhance the sustainability of the long term economic impact from new job creation. Awareness of Scotland as an attractive investment location is fundamental to our success in attracting and securing those jobs. While Scotland has performed well in recent years, today s market is increasingly competitive and will be influenced by the UK s decision to leave the European Union. We need to challenge ourselves to up our game and harness every opportunity to engage overseas audiences about what Scotland can offer. Working closely with VisitScotland, the Scottish Government and Universities Scotland, we are establishing a single approach to presenting a cohesive brand for Scotland ScotlandIsNow - that will align our international marketing and the connections we have globally to attract greater investment and enhance Scotland s attractiveness as a location to work, visit, study and do business. Helping more businesses to develop the capacity and capability to trade internationally is also critical. Currently Scotland has too few businesses concentrated in too few sectors that are actively exporting and entering new markets. Scotland needs 7,500 more exporting businesses (+80%) to reach the top quartile of UK regions 1. This year, working with partners to ensure all businesses have access to export support and advice, we will reach out to more businesses across a wider range of sectors encouraging them to trade internationally and achieve up to 1.5 billion of planned exports. We will also work closely with SDS, HIE and SFC to ensure a focus on the skills needs of investors, continuing to adapt and ensuring that Scotland can compete in an increasingly competitive market. To help deliver Scotland s International Trade & Investment Strategy with Scottish Government and partner agencies, we will continue to enhance our international footprint by completing our expansion in Europe. This will double the number of people representing Scotland on the ground across Europe and give Scotland a direct presence in many markets for the first time. An important driver for our new overseas staff will be identifying new trade and export opportunities for Scotland s industries and companies, building on the success of the food and drink specialists working in key markets for the industry and sourcing new opportunities for overseas food and drink sales. WE NEED TO CHALLENGE OURSELVES TO UP OUR GAME AND HARNESS EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO ENGAGE OVERSEAS AUDIENCES ABOUT WHAT SCOTLAND CAN OFFER 1 Source: SE analysis using OECD and Annual Business Survey SE analysis using OECD data and Scottish Government BERD data
7 Scottish Enterprise Operating Year Update 7 Accelerating business growth A thriving and productive business base across the whole of Scotland is essential to achieve inclusive and sustainable growth. So, this year we will be embarking on a programme to change how we support ambitious, growing companies across Scotland. This will see us working with public, private and third sector partners across the regions of Scotland to determine together how best to support the growth of businesses. We want to form delivery partnerships and flex how we deliver to meet specific regional needs. In addition, we want to use technology to open up more of the information, intelligence and networks we have to all companies no matter their size, location or sector. Business growth and Innovation are inextricably linked. We ve seen a marked shift in Scotland s innovation performance with an increase of 42% in real terms over the last five years (2011 to 2016), however, to reach the OECD top quartile Scotland needs to significantly increase investment in business R&D (+ 1.9bn) 2. With additional funding from the Scottish Government, our programme of support for new business research and development this year will be our largest ever. This investment will stimulate up to 400million in new business R&D which will help Scottish companies accelerate their growth and diversify into new sectors and markets. Helping to unlock innovation across Scotland s SMEs via the buying power of the public sector will remain an important priority. Working with Civtech, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and other partners, we will create opportunities for innovative Scottish businesses to develop innovative solutions to Scotland s social challenges and benefit from public sector contracts through the Can Do Innovation Challenge Fund. And recognising that Scotland needs more mid sized businesses we will also lead national growth programmes, including Start2Scale, for companies with the ambition and potential to scale quickly to 50m- 100m+ turnover. Closely linked to our work to support businesses with scale up potential we will join up our approach with partners to drive forward Scotland CAN DO SCALE to deliver an Unlocking Ambition Challenge with a group of up to 40 talented individuals and earlystage entrepreneurs who have big ideas and ambitions. The programme will ensure that they can access mentoring support from some of Scotland s leading entrepreneurs and have the best opportunities to develop their ideas in Scotland, bring them to market and create the successful new companies Scotland needs to continue to grow an inclusive economy. Research highlights that companies who pursue diversity in the workforce by supporting high value jobs, youth employment and more women into leadership roles are more profitable. So, we will also work with companies to continue developing fair and more productive business practices, including our continuing commitment to promote the Scottish Business Pledge. And we will continue to build our financial readiness service to help companies across Scotland consider and prepare for different routes to secure funding to grow. HELPING TO UNLOCK INNOVATION ACROSS SCOTLAND S SMES VIA THE BUYING POWER OF THE PUBLIC SECTOR WILL REMAIN AN IMPORTANT PRIORITY
8 8 Scottish Enterprise Business Plan Major economic opportunities We have been working closely with partners, both in Scotland and internationally, to fully understand the extent of emerging opportunities where Scotland can compete globally and become a world leader. These opportunities centre on the adoption of new technology and ways of working that are applicable to many sectors and regions across Scotland. Based on evidence, foresight and data, we are focusing on three main areas where Scotland has existing globally recognised capability that can be built on: High Value Manufacturing: to help put Scotland s manufacturers at the forefront of digital technology and automation to transform our manufacturing capability in key sectors including aerospace, textiles, energy and life sciences. This year s activity, under the Scottish Manufacturing Action Plan, will focus on the creation of the National Manufacturing Institute for Scotland and acceleration of the Scottish Life and Chemical Sciences manufacturing strategy which aims to increase turnover by 5.7bn over the next five years. Digital economy: with a focus on becoming a global leader in data driven innovation to realise a potential additional 20 billion of added value to Scotland s economy. This year s plan will focus on data opportunity plans for fintech and digital health as well as projects that increase the capacity for even more businesses to capitalise on data. This includes the Bayes Innovation Programme which will promote Scotland s data capabilities internationally and support Scottish businesses to grasp the business opportunities available from data innovation. Also, the development of a new cyber-tech cluster for Scotland, positioning Scotland as a key player in cyber security goods and services. Low carbon transition: to help Scotland realise the economic, system and supply chain benefits highlighted in the new Energy Strategy and Climate Change Plan; making the shift to a truly low carbon economy whilst capitalising on the global opportunities that low carbon transition presents and opportunities to increase business productivity. This year s plan will deliver a Local Energy Systems programme. It will also focus on decommissioning and subsea opportunities to realise up to an additional 10.3bn for Scotland s economy in the next decade. We will work with industry, academia, businesses and public sector partners across Scotland and overseas to help identify, shape and accelerate the adoption of these major economic opportunities and how to apply these capabilities to all sectors, given Scotland s diverse economy. FOCUS ON BECOMING A GLOBAL LEADER IN DATA DRIVEN INNOVATION TO REALISE A POTENTIAL ADDITIONAL 20 BILLION OF ADDED VALUE TO SCOTLAND S ECONOMY
9 Scottish Enterprise Operating Year Update 9 Supporting a more effective economic development system Harnessing the full potential of our nation s economic development system is critical to future success. Collectively, the organisations working in economic development have access to and hold a wealth of powerful information and technical capability that should be used to Scotland s advantage. Specifically, for Scottish Enterprise, in the coming year we will engage with partners to share our expertise in project management which has been built up and fine tuned over many years of delivering large and complex economic development projects. We will be an active partner in a programme of activity to ensure business support is accessible to all. We will deliver a transformational programme to re-engineer delivery of services through increased automation and online applications which will simplify and expedite access to business support in areas like grants and funding. We will ensure that cyber resilience measures are taken throughout the development of this programme, so that the public and businesses have confidence in using our digital services. This programme, which we will develop in partnership with Highlands and Islands Enterprise, will be engineered in a way that makes it easily transferable so that other partners can use and benefit from what we develop. We will work with key partners and agencies to co-ordinate a joint improvement programme to deliver a streamlined system of business support (including innovation, exporting, skills). We will work with regional partnerships to understand and promote the full extent of Scotland s assets. In line with Enterprise & Skills Review commitments we will work with Scottish Government to develop a national asset register to inform regional economic strategies, support the work of Government and partner agencies to establish regional private sector forums, and on the development and implementation of City Deals. With in-depth and broad understanding of Scotland s economic assets at a sectoral, company, education, research and infrastructure level, we will be able to collectively drive inclusive economic growth at a regional level as well as being able to target global mobile investment with the most relevant and compelling propositions that will influence, attract and secure new investment. Aligned to the Regional Partnerships, Scottish Enterprise will embed a new Regional Leadership approach during 2018/19 to develop and deliver Regional Operating Plans. Our contribution to these Regional Plans will be made up from a combination of those initiatives we deliver as part of our core national and international remit and those initiatives that we will vary to more directly reflect regional conditions and that will lead to improved regional outcomes. WE WILL BE AN ACTIVE PARTNER IN A PROGRAMME OF ACTIVITY TO ENSURE BUSINESS SUPPORT IS ACCESSIBLE TO ALL
10 10 Scottish Enterprise Business Plan How we measure success Scottish Enterprise s performance framework is derived from the Scottish Government s National Performance Framework and Scotland s Economic Strategy. Our initiatives, programmes and projects contribute directly to the Purpose Targets and National Outcomes. Our approach to monitoring and measuring the impact of what we deliver needs to demonstrate value for the public purse, and provide insight and evidence about what works and has the greatest impact on Scotland s economy. Reflecting on the recommendations from the Enterprise and Skills Review and in delivering actions within the Strategic Board s Implementation Plan, we are working with partners to establish a new comprehensive measurement framework that will capture data and evidence across the wider economic development arena. This includes working proactively with our partner Highlands and Islands Enterprise to identify how we best align our measurement and reporting. In the interim, we are applying a simplified measurement framework, aligned to Scotland s National Performance Framework that will be refreshed in the summer 2018, and which reflects the drivers of productivity and inclusive and sustainable economy factors set out in the Enterprise and Skills Review.
11 Scottish Enterprise Operating Year Update 11 MEASUREMENT FRAMEWORK 2018/19 We have focused this Framework on the economic drivers that evidence shows helps to increase productivity and support better quality jobs. MEASURE RANGE RATIONALE FOR MEASURE Growth funding raised by supported companies Planned international exports Planned business & sector capital asset investment Planned R&D investment Planned turnover from innovation Inward investment jobs paying at least the real living wage 275m - 325m 1.25bn - 1.5bn 150m - 200m 350m - 400m 300m - 350m 6,500 8,000 Access to funding is key to supporting businesses to invest in growth plans, such as funding capital investment, R&D and innovation, entering new markets, skills & training, and workplace innovation. Scotland s Challenge: Demand for growth funding remains an issue just 16% of Scottish SMEs sought external finance in Source: Survey of Small Businesses 2016 Exporters have higher levels of productivity than non-exporters, and increase their productivity further by exporting. Exporters are also more likely to be innovative and to grow faster. Scotland s Challenge: Scotland is in the 2nd quartile of UK regions for goods exports as % of GVA. To reach the top quartile of UK regions, international sales would need to be 7bn higher (+30%). Source: SE analysis using Annual Business Survey data Business investment is a key driver of productivity, competitiveness and economic growth. Investment in capital assets increases the capital stock. Scotland s Challenge: Scotland s business investment rate lags nearly all other OECD economies. To match the top OECD quartile, business investment in Scotland would need to be 90% higher (+ 10bn) a year. Source: SE analysis using OECD data and Scottish Government Quarterly National Accounts for Scotland R&D can drive productivity by enabling businesses to develop new and better products and services for existing or new markets, or to improve processes to achieve greater efficiencies. The Scottish Government has an ambition to double Business R&D spend by Firms that persistently invest in R&D have on average 13% higher productivity levels than those with no R&D spending, and 9% higher than firms that only occasionally invest in R&D. They also tend to export more than businesses that do not invest. Scotland s Challenge: Scotland s business R&D performance is in the 4th quartile of OECD economies. To reach the top quartile, Scottish business R&D would need to be 200% higher (+ 1.9bn). Sources: UK Government, Innovation Report 2014; SE analysis using OECD data and Scottish Government BERD data Innovation is a key driver of productivity growth, for example new and improved products/ services can boost business sales and increase value add, and new processes or better organisation can increase efficiency. Innovative businesses grow twice as fast, both in employment and sales, as businesses that do not innovate, and innovative businesses are more likely to export. Scotland s Challenge: The proportion of companies that are innovating increased from 47% in 2012 to 56% in 2014, moving Scotland to the top quartile of EU countries. However, companies in Scotland tend to focus less on product and process innovation than those in other countries Source: SE analysis using Community Innovation Survey data Inward investors have on average higher levels of productivity and pay higher wages than Scottish owned companies, and are more likely to engage in R&D. Attracting inward investment also offers opportunities for Scottish based suppliers, which in turn can boost innovation and create jobs. Scotland s Challenge: Maintaining our competitive standing as a leading location for inward investment, particularly for R&D with its higher quality jobs more firmly rooted in our economy. And bringing new investors to Scotland for the first time to strengthen and diversify the number of companies and increase opportunities for follow on investment and expansion.
12 12 Scottish Enterprise Business Plan Inclusive and sustainable economic growth measures During this transition year we will also be tracking a number of different things to allow us to better understand how inclusive and sustainable our activities are. This will help us to understand the impact of our activities across all parts of Scotland and in areas such as female-led businesses, number of social enterprises we are engaged with and establish baseline information that will allow us to introduce outcome measures for inclusive growth in future plans. We will share this insight with Scottish Government and partner agencies to help shape future policies and actions. These include: Outcomes achieved in areas of disadvantage Number of companies engaged and supported to develop approaches to fair and progressive workplace practices Number of companies developing their leadership Number of social enterprises, employee owned companies and cooperatives supported Number of account managed companies adopting key inclusive and responsible business practices, including: - Paying the living wage to all employees over 18 years old - Avoiding the use of exploitative zero hours contracts - Having workforce engagement and progressing work practices in place - Investing in youth - Having gender balance on their boards, and a diverse workforce, including gender balance where appropriate - Playing an active role in the community - Paying suppliers promptly Number of account managed companies that are women-led Number of jobs created by account managed companies Planned efficiency improvements by supported companies and organisations CO2 savings achieved by supported companies and organisations. DURING THIS TRANSITION YEAR WE WILL ALSO BE TRACKING A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT THINGS TO ALLOW US TO BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW INCLUSIVE AND SUSTAINABLE OUR ACTIVITIES ARE
