Abstract

This study reports comparative analysis of high performance management practices (HPMP) in Pakistani SMEs by using data from 436 manufacturing and service-based organisations. The findings of this study suggest that there is a significant difference between manufacturing and service-based SMEs regarding the adoption of HPMP. Service-based SMEs have adopted more formal recruitment, selection, compensation, training, and performance appraisal practices in comparison to manufacturing SMEs. However, consultation practices were found to be associated more with manufacturing SMEs than service-based SMEs.
