Il Diverso Modo In Cui Le Piccole Imprese Misurano Il Loro Successo
[How Do Small Firms Growth?]
This paper discusses the growth of Italian SMRs. Firms, particularly localized in industrial districts, do not grow in size, but often establish formal or informal connections with other firms,in order to relocate manufacturing phases, establish commercial agreements, develop their activities in new markets. Business networking allows SMEs to expand their markets and distribution channels, to realise economies of scale and scope in products and processes, and to profit from the sale and licensing of technology-based assets.
