Predictors of organisational performance in small and medium-sized professional service firms
The paper sets out our theoretical and empirical approach to delineating predictors of stakeholder performance in medium-sized computer service firms. It combines a resource-based approach with recent insights from the literature on small and medium-sized firms, professional service, and computer-service firms. Top managerial capital (in terms of inspiration, competence, and communication) and organisational capital (in terms of external, professional, and employee orientation as well as networking, financial management, and market focus) are assumed to be major predictors of organisational performance.
