  • 1. THE COX REVIEW: ENHANCING THE ROLE OF CREATIVITY IN DRIVING THE PRODUCTIVITY PERFORMANCE OF SMES IN THE UK
  • 2. The Cox Review will report to HM Treasury by the end of September 2005, its findings on how best to enhance the role of creativity in raising the productivity performance of SMEs in the UK. The Review is led by Sir George Cox, Chairman of the Design Council. It was commissioned by HM Treasury and has team support led by the DTI. It is entirely independent. This document is designed to gather important evidence, information and views to inform the Review. In what is becoming a highly competitive world, commercial or economic success – whether for individual businesses or the nation – is going to be increasingly dependent on creativity and innovation. This applies to both products and services, and to every sector imaginable. At stake are not just the lower skilled jobs which we have seen migrating to lower cost economies in recent years, but also the high skilled jobs. In facing such a challenge, the UK clearly has some great strengths. Our record in the creative industries is one of outstanding achievement. In fields such as product design, fashion, architecture, advertising and many areas of the media, the UK is widely acknowledged as being at the forefront of world competition. The problem is that too little of this creativity seems to spill over into British business more widely. It is not a matter of British business being ‘uncreative’ – there are many examples to the contrary – rather it is that it is not making sufficient use of the nations creative talents to produce and market more world-beating products and services. The Review looks at what can be done to address this, focusing particularly on SMEs and on manufacturing. 2

  • 5. Executive Summary Sir George Cox will report, by the 2005 pre-Budget Report1 on how best to enhance UK business productivity by drawing on our world-leading creative capabilities. The review will address two specific issues: • Firstly it will identify how best to strengthen the relationship between businesses – particularly SMEs - and creative professionals drawn from a range of design, arts and related disciplines. These will include the potential impact on business performance of, among other things, digital media, product and industrial design, the arts and culture, graphics, branding and advertising, publishing, packaging, as well as interior and retail design. Within this, the review will have a particular focus on the role of creativity in modern manufacturing. • Secondly, the review will look at strengthening the links across university departments and with industry. This will include new forms of courses, services and alliances involving, amongst others, art, design and creative courses, business schools and engineering and technology courses. The review will propose specific action in both of these areas, for Government, businesses and other institutions, with the objective of raising UK productivity. 1 The pre-budget report is due in September 2005. 5
