Roxas, Hernan Banjo G. and Lindsay, Valerie and Ashill, Nicholas and Victorio, Antong (2008) Institutional analysis of strategic choice of micro, small and medium enterprises: development of a conceptual framework. Singapore Management Review, 30 (2). pp. 47-72. ISSN 0129-5977

Abstract

This paper presents a conceptual framework showing formal and informal institutions and their relationship with the strategic choice of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in a developing country setting. It emphasises how institutions at sub-national level (such as a region or city) influence the strategic orientations of MSMEs as many developing countries in Asia are undergoing decentral-isation whereby sub-national government authorities are given more political, economic, fiscal, and administrative powers. Furthermore, it sheds more insights on the environ-mental (institutional) determinism-organisational (strategic) choice nexus. It offers propositions, questions as well as issues worth pursuing in empirical investigations in the future.
