Abstract

This paper reports some of the findings from a cross‐national study of small, high‐technology firms. It sets out some of the background to the work, describing methods as well as results. The main contribution of the paper, however, will be to discuss some of the organisational forms encountered in the research and to speculate about the implications of these findings in terms of current debates concerning socio‐economic change, especially to connect debate about organisational structure (flexibility, decentredness) with ideas concerning inter‐organisational structures (networks), and the relationship of these to regional and national economic development. Data collection is still proceeding.
