Welcome to my research on SME collaboration

Hello

My name is Robert Hankin, and I am currently undertaking an MBA at Durham University Business School in the UK. I would be very grateful if you could support my research project by giving 10 minutes of your time to fill in a short survey.

The purpose of the study is to investigate how small and medium sized businesses search for external collaborative partners.

By conducting this research, I hope to gain a better understanding of the limitations of current search methods, and what might be done to improve the ease in which SMEs find partners to gain key resources and capabilities, in order to strengthen their competitive position.

The survey will take no more than 10 minutes to complete, and is completely anonymous. If you would like to get in touch, or have any further questions, my contact details are below.

Thank you very much for your time.

Robert Hankin
