AbstractSmall and mid-sized firms usually suffer from size constraints and a shortage of resources, finding it difficult to compete in technology industries characterized by intense competition, shortened product life cycles, and frequent technological obsolescence. They do, however, have some advantages, such as flexibility, nimbleness, and innovativeness. Thus, a number of strategies are open to them. By focusing on components rather than consumer goods, specializing in manufacturing, creating alliances, embracing component adaptation rather than standardization, producing in emerging markets, and acquiring rather than starting up operations, they will find it easier to keep their heads above water and swim with the big guys.
