Micro-construction enterprises (McE's) account for a significant proportion of all businesses that make up the industry¿s delivery mechanism and yet, they are poorly understood in terms of management development and day-to-day operation. The role of micros is seldom discussed in the literature, and policy initiatives aimed at bringing about change within the industry generally target the larger organisations without considering the impact on, or of, the micros. This paper discusses factors found to be significant in the development and management of the micro-construction enterprise and also the strategic issues facing a number of the micro-construction enterprises found in west-central Scotland.
