Sammanfattning

The purpose of this research was to investigate e-business and e-supply strategies in Scottish small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The paper reviews academic literature and recent survey reports on the degree of e-business adoption in the UK and Republic of Ireland. The qualitative methodology undertaken is described, findings are discussed and implications from this study for e-business strategies outlined. This was an exploratory study using a small sample with possible geographic biases. Nevertheless, the data so far are in line with findings from larger studies. The role of support agencies is examined, as well as how government could better serve the SMEs. Finally conclusions and future research plans are presented.
