Why Effective Teaming is at the heart of SME Export Success

Why an Export Hub?
The opportunities, both local and international, for companies that operate in the defence industry are vast. The Defence Teaming Centre (DTC) recognises that companies who wish to take advantage of these opportunities need to be supported and equipped to do so effectively.

The Australian Defence Export Strategy details how the Federal government will create an environment to improve industry access to a great range of export opportunities, but it is up to industry to take the commercial initiative to develop the opportunities, make the investment decision, and pursue export success.

The Teaming for Export Success in Advanced Manufacturing Export Hub will provide support and development to companies to capitalise on defence sector global supply chain and direct export opportunities. The industry focus of this initiative will be advanced manufacturing and cyber security SMEs in South Australia (including regional South Australian areas). The Export Hub will provide the education, tools and one to one support to effectively bring SMEs together to achieve the increased
capacity and capability often required to achieve export success.

Leveraging existing intellectual property developed by the DTC and project partner Knowledge Perspectives, the project will be delivered in partnership with a national network of organisations. These include industry growth centres, academia and government agencies and will provide specialist education on how to make the most of collaboration and teaming to overcome traditional barriers to export.

What will the Hub consist of?
The Export Hub’s services will be delivered via a blended approach that includes a combination of:

  • face to face workshops
  • online course modules
  • Teaming Toolkit – a toolkit consisting of various legal templates written in plain English
  • one to one facilitation and export coaching
  • industry-based export mentoring
  • access and participation in a collaborative community

These services will be provided to support the implementation of teaming arrangements which ultimately increase the likelihood of export success. A conceptual model of the proposed program has been included in Figure 1 below.
