The DOST-NCR conducted series of on-site orientations on the Manufacturing Productivity Consultancy Program (MPCP) for twelve (12) micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in Metro Manila from January 4 to 16, 2023.
DOST-NCR Assistant Regional Director for Technical Support Services (TSS) Dr. Elvin B. Almazar and technical experts from AJV Management Consultancy led the needs assessment of the MSMEs. The Team also provided recommendations for improvement of the firms' overall operations and processes to increase productivity and efficiency.
