From Government to Governance: Small and Medium Enterprise Policy Development in New Zealand, 1978 to 2008
Ms Jurado undertook an historical investigation into the way that small and medium enterprise (SME) policy developed in New Zealand between 1978 and 2008. The investigation identified the main influences (or inputs) in SME policy development, and what policy outputs were set in place. Her research highlighted the dual role of SMEs in relation to economic and social policy and concluded that a shift to the entrepreneurship paradigm contributed to a fundamental recalibration of approaches: from direct SME support, such as the Small Business Agency, to indirect contextual support. Understanding how SME policy has altered over three decades assists researchers, policymakers and other SME stakeholders by contextualising the evolution of thinking and approaches. Her research will give stakeholders additional clarity to help them contribute to the ongoing evolution of New Zealand SME policy.
