Abstract

Suggests that graduates face a crucial challenge in attempting to transfer new ideas into British small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Claims that many find their ability to act limited, resulting in frustration and disillusionment. Examines how graduates involved in the Company Associate Partnership Scheme (CAPS) at Leeds Metropolitan University attempt to tackle the problems that they face via a process of problem management and learning. Highlights some of the crucial features of technology transfers into SMEs.
