Abstract

This paper provides an examination of the varying definitions, sources and perspectives available which surround and confound research, policy and practitioner views of the Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) context in general. The examination presented here reveals the degree of variation both within Australia and internationally. The importance of “the business of one”, what we term “nano business” is revealed as they emerge as the largest segment within SMEs.
