중소기업 혁신역량과 기술개발사업에 대한 연구: 부품소재 개발사업의 중단 및 실패요인
MetadataShow full item record
In spite of the widespread recognition of the important roles that innovative, technology-oriented small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) play in most economies, limited research has focused on the integrated aspects of technology, management and the related factors. Since there are no well-defined or established research models or frameworks, we adopted an exploratory case approach to investigate key factors that affect success and failure business cases in the Korean components and materials industry. With forty-five case study analysis, we found that there are three important factors of business successes or failures with technology-oriented SMEs. These include technology factors (market-oriented technology; timely innovative technology; technology innovation capability; patents), management factors (financial resource; management commitments; human resource; R&D capability; commercialization capability), and the related factors (top managers' ethical issues; transparency in R&D budgets; lack of commitments for success). For better understanding on the roles of the factors with SMEs, we put an emphasis on the integrative approach which combines technology, management, and the related factors to examine successful or failing business cases. Further studies will benefit from our findings to develop theoretical models and examine other industries.
