dc.description.abstractExploring the nature of linkages as a means of examining the potential for business collaboration within a Queensland region, this paper uses the existing business linkages as a means of analysing the potential of a region to foster greater collaboration amongst small and medium enterprises. Past research suggests that when firms within individual industries collaborate, higher economic growth and development for both the region and the economy at large are possible. Historically the Australian business environment has been characterised by low levels of supply and value chain collaboration. The findings from this study suggest that the region under examination meets only some of the conditions identified in other regions as necessary for successful industry clustering. The evidence from this research also suggests that businesses in the Logan region of South East Queensland demonstrate a relatively insular inwards-focused approach to business decision-making. Furthermore, it seems likely that if this approach is to change, there will need to be a strategy involving a significant support role by government/business organisations to assist businesses to change the way they think about doing business.
