Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are recognized to be mainstays of the economy in almost every market in the world. It is equally recognized that their performance cannot be measured with the same yardsticks as those used for large, established organizations. To provide a holistic view in understanding the diverse issues faced by SMEs, an integrated three-dimensional framework has been developed. This integrated framework puts into context various issues that confront SMEs at different levels of analysis, at different stages of venture development, and in different socio-economic settings. The framework also helps to identify policy implications and develop recommendations for practice. The second part of this paper uses the proposed framework to conceptualize the strategic issues and challenges faced by SMEs in Hong Kong. Insights can thus be generated into the development processes of SMEs in Hong Kong, thereby formulating guidelines to cope with the changes that have been prevalent in the recent past.
