The Life Cycle of an SME and Human Resources Strategies and Policies Adopted by the Entrepreneur


  • Anca Ștefănescu

    (Romanian-American University)

Thus, the economic performance of the SME not only attests to the entrepreneurs' ability to act and make decisions, but also their ability to underlie, elaborate, implement and control - assess global strategies and human resources appropriate to the turbulent environment in which these economic entities operate on the market
