How much innovation is enough? The case of Australian small firms.
Sarel Gronum and Martie-Louise Verreynne, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. February 2011.

This quantitative study uses a large scale longitudinal dataset on Australian small firm innovation to shed light on the directionality, temporality and contextual nature of this relationship. They find that the innovation - performance relationship is a mutually beneficial, reciprocal relationship which is context dependent. Innovation breadth exhibits characteristics of diminishing returns.


Open innovation in Australian small firms: when should we collaborate?
Sarel Gronum and Martie-Louise Verreynne, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. February 2011.

The role of innovation in small firms is receiving more attention as its inherent benefits become clear. This paper investigates the relationships between open innovation, formal networks, innovation breadth and performance. It argues that the early formation of formal networks will enhance the benefits that a small firm will get from involvement in open innovation.
