Longitudinal development of innovation implementation in family-based SMEs: the effects of critical incidents

Abstract

There is a paucity of studies on the complex longitudinal dynamics of innovation incorporation within family-based small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in response to market and technological change. Attempts at innovation implementation are likely to be influenced by the dynamic effects of critical incidents or crisis points in small family-based firms. The aim of this EU-funded study is to explore the effects of critical incidents on innovation implementation within a regional cluster of family-based SMEs over a two-year period.
