This study compares aspects of innovative behavior among small-sized firms. The behavior considered is the acquisition of technical knowledge in the development of new products and production processes, the adoption of new production process technology, and the introduction of new innovative products as a competitive strategy. We find that among small-sized firms, size is important in determining the level of the first two aspects of innovative behavior, but not of the third.
