Role of Knowledge Sourcing in Albanian Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises
Knowledge sourcing can contribute to the growth and development of Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) in developing countries such as Albania. The role of knowledge sourcing in knowledge sharing and management has not been explored to a great extent, especially in the context of developing countries. SMEs constitute a significant proportion of economy in most developing countries. According to the European Union commissioned report on SME development in South Eastern Europe, Albanian SMEs constitute significant proportion of Albanian economy with SMEs constituting 99% of registered businesses. The report also states the weak points in SME development in Albania including human capital development and technology capacity among others.
