Recent research indicates that small firms are a key source of growth, employment and innovation in modern economies. The competitiveness of small enterprises is explained in terms of the orientation of contemporary economies towards rapidly changing consumer markets and niche markets in combination with an increased role for information and knowledge in both new and existing industries. In this environment, small flexible enterprises are regarded as having an advantage over large bureaucratic organizations.
