Els Factors Competitius de les Pimes a Catalunya
AbstractThe aim of this study is to reflect which the main competitive factors for small and medium businesses are today in Catalonia. For this reason, it has been chosen a sample of 1000 small businesses approximately (according the EU criteria) and analysed the financial information. From this source, it is possible to argue that all aspects related to personnel show the ratios with more statistical significance in order to explain profitability. Also, it has been sent a questionnaire to the firms of the sample and asked the managerial point of view about their opinion about different issues related with competitiveness. Only 50 firms responded our requirement and human resources revealed to be the most important one. We expected that other factors such as innovation or investment in technology were among the most relevant. Nevertheless the results were definitive in the sense that no other aspect was as relevant as the mentioned.
