BCHINI Belgacem

Abstract


Abstract

 

The objective of this paper is triple:

1. Firstly, it seeks to determine the contribution of innovation networks to business growth, and in particular SMEs.

2. Secondly, it tries to propose a typology of growth. In this context, it has the innovation networks as an element that focuses on three axes: innovation, information, and knowledge. Combining pairs of these three axes leads to four types of growth: growth provisional, negotiated growth, random growth and sustained growth. It should be noted that the latter (ie the sustained growth) is the goal of any leader/ manager.

3. Thirdly, it specifies the contribution of each axis for each type of growth.


Keywords
