How a Canadian business is financed, planned, and managed will determine its success or failure says a new Queen’s School of Business report. The study attempts to identify the challenges that business owners are facing within their companies and what can be done to help them. "Growth challenges are mystifying to managers because they are largely invisible and intangible," said the study's lead researcher Dr. John Gordon, professor emeritus and former dean of Queen's School of Business. "This is the first study to define general patterns and trends in management as barriers to SME growth. Our intent is to offer SME leaders a starting point for change." See press article here
