Abstract

This paper aims to provide an assessment of Information Technology and to identify its influences on microenterprises within UK. It develops an understanding towards providing an evaluative measure against strategic growth within microenterprises. The author’s draws upon research questions that derive towards identifying if Microenterprises should be regarded in their own right away from the commonly used term SME (Small-medium Enterprise), and to addressing the perceptions of IT on strategic growth within Microenterprises. The paper also aims to identify weather microenterprises can achieve greater time efficiencies using IT to pursue strategic growth. To address the research areas the paper examines literature studies within the areas of microenterprises; the strategic growth and influence of information technology (IT) within microenterprises. The research carried out observational case study within a project management microenterprise addressing the general processes, perceptions and challenges addressed in the working environment highlighting particular attention towards administrative deficiency with use of IT and reliability issues with their in-house server and attempting to overcome these solutions. The result from the literature and the observations of the case provides an opportunity to propose towards a development framework to assist microenterprises in achieving strategic growth with the use of IT and overcoming their addressed barriers and challenge.
