You are invited to participate in a research project titled: Strategic Capabilities and Sustainability of SMMEs in Gauteng: A case of Roodepoort Area in Johannesburg. The aim of this study is to examine the extent to which strategic capabilities are necessary in addressing the challenges faced by SMMEs to ensure their sustainability.

In the questionnaire, the following keywords are used:
Strategic capabilities: are the unique and core competencies that SMMEs possess which helps to differentiate itself from its rivals. SMMEs with strategic capabilities have the ability to perform certain activities that will help determine and manage its opportunity and threat.
Sustainability: has been distinguished as more than just maintaining the environment, but endurance of a business to pursue opportunities, new products development and ensuring profitability over a long period of time.
SMMEs: According to the Gauteng SMMEs policy framework (2014) and the National Small Business Act, SMME was defined as a distinctive and separate business unit which comprises of non-government enterprises and corporative organisations. It is managed by a single owner or more. SMMEs include different branches or subsidiaries and carried on in any sector or subsector of the economy.
