This study investigates how the various dimensions of entrepreneurial orientation (EO) influence the relationship between the strategic decision-making process (SDMP) and performance within Singapore Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Drawing on a survey of 278 SMEs and 14 semi-structured interviews with owner-managers, results suggest that Singapore SMEs engage in a mixed SDMP, comprising of both the deliberate and emergent SDMPs. Of the five EO dimensions, only proactiveness and competitive aggressiveness have a statistically significant relationship with the deliberate or emergent SDMP. Contrary to extant literature, a positive relationship is found between a deliberate SDMP and organisational performance.
