This article focuses on one case example to illustrate how the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme has been used to benefit a small to medium sized enterprise (SME) in the UK. The KTP product is arguably the most used vehicle for effecting knowledge transfer between universities and local industries in the UK, and three distinct KTP projects (implemented in the one company) are discussed. The impact of these projects is then reviewed in terms of innovation initiatives, professional development, skills enhancement and organisational change. The change implications for the university are also discussed and sets of guidelines for KTP selling, project design and project supervision are suggested
