(Seeking, Acting on and Appreciating) the Value of Business Advice.

Previous evidence shows that business advice helps businesses and that more advice is generally better [1-4]. Most firms will take advice from outsiders at some point in their development but fewer firms take advice than seems warranted by the evidence [5]. The reasons for the reluctance to take advice are varied and have been relatively intractable; moreover our understanding of the ‘subtle processes’ within advice has been hampered by the few inductive investigations [6] with recent exceptions [7-9]. These ‘subtle processes’ imply that advice is not a single process but is made up of a series of sub-processes.

Openness and Innovation Performance: Are Small Firms Different? Research Paper No 12.

Traditionally, literature on open innovation ( the number of links a firm has to customers, suppliers and other firms) has concentrated on analysis of larger firms. This paper explores if and how the benefits of openness in innovation are different for small firms compared to medium and large ones. It suggests that small firms can benefit disproportionately from adopting open innovation approaches but that they reach the benefits of this approach at lower levels than medium and larger firms making the choice of innovation partner critical.
