Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperConference paper

Abstract

This study investigates the process of strategic and operational decision- making amongst small firms within turbulent environments. It examines the choices made by owner-managers in the allocation of limited resources to strategic and operational activities targeting growth and survival. Of particular interest is how these owner-managers make trade-off decisions to find a balance between strategic and operational level planning. The paper is the first stage of a larger study exploring the relationship between entrepreneurial orientation (EO) and risk perception amongst the owner-managers of small firms.
