Mount Royal University Bissett School of Business: Of central debate amongst academics, government and the private sector are the factors influencing the growth of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). Understanding how SMEs achieve growth is essential to unlocking future economic productivity and performance.
In practice, however, we know very little about what successful SMEs are doing to achieve success. In order to address this Professor Simon Raby brought together a team of researchers experienced on small business growth to evaluate the current practices of SMEs in Alberta.
The team drew on the Promoting Sustainable Performance (PSP) research model that has been tested and perfected in the U.K. over the past 10 years. Navigate to page 41 for more information on how PSP works.
