Abstract

The purpose of this study is to obtain a model to improve the performance of MSMEs through the application of competitiveness to enhance their corporate governance, motivation, and innovative behavior. A descriptive verification analysis was applied using 5 main variables which include corporate governance, motivation, innovative behavior, competitiveness, and performance of MSMEs. The population includes 106,038 MSMEs owners or employees in the Riau Islands Province while a total of 398 were selected as the subjects. Data were analyzed using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) based on the variance which involves the Partial Least Square (PLS) data processing in SmartPLS Ver.3.0 software. The results showed that the level of governance, motivation, innovative behavior, and competitiveness in MSMEs can affect their level of performance. It was also discovered that competitiveness has a mediation role concerning the influence of corporate governance, motivation, and innovative behavior on performance. The novelty of this study is for it to serve as a strategic model to enhance the performance of MSMEs through their competitiveness by improving the corporate governance, motivation, and innovative behavior.
