Abstract

This paper aims to give an empirical contribution to the debate on new organizational forms by means of an analysis of the organizational evolution of not yet well analysed set of firms, micro/small enterprises and suggests a system of measurement which is linked to the literature on complementarity (Milgrom and Roberts 1990). The paper, by means of a survey on a significant sample of 147 Italian micro/small firms, investigates firstly the diffusion of a set of organisational and technological innovations. Secondly the question was asked whether in micro/small firms entrepreneurs invest in only one type of innovation or if there is a simultaneous adoption of complementary innovations. Finally the relationship between the adoption of a set of complementary innovations in micro/small firms and the dynamic of firm performance (turnover and product innovation) has been investigated.
