Therefore, it is necessary to study and research further by exploring more comprehensively about the moderating effect of entrepreneurial orientation on business strategies on the performance of small printing industry SMEs in Surabaya, which are influenced by industrial environmental variables, transactional leadership using Moderating Structural Equation Modeling (MSEM). The results showed that the performance model of small printing industry SME companies with Entrepreneurship Orientation as moderating is a fit model based on the Goodness of Fit (GoF) criteria.
