This first Strategic Plan articulates the shared Vision, Mission, Core Functions, Policy Priorities, Strategic Objectives and Resource requirements of the Micro and Small Enterprises Authority for the years 2013-2017. In developing this Strategic Plan, we have recognized the Authority’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Similarly, MSEA has been able to fully appreciate some of the underlying challenges facing the sector. In realizing its Vision and Mission, the Authority is guided by its mandate, key result areas and
strategic objectives which also take into consideration the environment under which the Authority operates.
To actualize the strategies and activities outlined in this document, the Authority shall continue to engage key stakeholders. Our collective undertaking is to re-dedicate ourselves to the important task of successfully implementing this Strategic Plan. The operational processes will be reviewed continuously to provide any necessary strategic adjustments.
The formulation of this Strategic Plan was made possible through the contributions and consultations with our stakeholders. The Board of Directors and Management constituted themselves to the Strategic Planning Committee. They played a major coordinating role and generated valuable information. We profoundly acknowledge the professional input provided by the Kenya School of Government Consultants; Mr. Mathew Malinda, and Mr. Humphrey Mokaya for the strategic oversight throughout the formulation process.
To all our stakeholders who contributed either directly or indirectly to the successful preparation of the Strategic Plan, we thank you most sincerely and encourage you to partner with us in its implementation.
