The growing number of MSMEs has failed to meet good standard in business management. Data shows that 15% of MSMEs in Indonesia had good performance while others were categorized in stagnant and lower performance (Statistik Department Koperasi dan UKM Jatim, 2016). The common cause of MSME failure is the lack of managerial skill and experience (Maes et. al, 2014); the lack of entrepreneurial orientation and strategic planning practices (O’Rogan, 2002; Coleman, 2007).
