    Author : Adli Abouzeedan; Magnus Klofsten; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SME performance; performance evaluation; firm efficiency; SIV model; innovation capital; system capital; open capital; business models; Business and economics; Ekonomi;

    Abstract : Current SME performance models suffer from a number of disadvantages. The models use intensively a business ratio approach, they look at SMEs as a homogenous group, they consider firms to be closed systems, they do not directly incorporate the impact of an enterprise’s innovation activities, and finally they are complex and rely on sophisticated statistical refining methods making them unpractical to use by SME managers.
