Item description for Small Business Management And Entrepreneurship in Hong Kong: A Casebook by Ali Farhoomand...

Small and medium companies are the prime engine for economic growth in Hong Kong and to a large extent, in southern China. So-called "SMEs" account for 95 percent of companies in Hong Kong and employ about two-thirds of the workforce. The managers and entrepreneurs behind these companies contribute to all aspects of Hong Kongs development. Yet it is interesting to note that the management of small businesses is significantly different from that of multinational companies. Management experiences vary widely on account of the different skills, resources and environmental pressures that SMEs face.

The University of Hong Kongs Asia Case Research Centre (ACRC) with the backing of the Trade and Industry Department of the Hong Kong Government has undertaken the development of a series of case studies to showcase the challenges facing small businesses and entrepreneurs in Hong Kong, and some innovative approaches they have adopted. The case studies are topically diverse, and span a range of functions and sectors (manufacturing, infrastructure, marketing channels, services, international trade, community services and transport to name a few).

This casebook is an anthology of 28 cases from the series. Taken as a collection, the cases explore various aspects of small business management and entrepreneurship in Hong Kong, spanning the spectrum from the issues that a founder faces when planning to establish a small business, to the operational functions involved in running an enterprise on a daily basis.@They constitute a comprehensive self-contained course of study yet each case can also be considered in isolation.

The cases are written with a strong management perspective to offer a practical and interesting look at how successful entrepreneur-managers in Hong Kong systematically generate innovations in the shape of successful new products, services, processes and technologies when faced with various organizational and environmental challenges.
