1994 (English)In: Management education and training: Understanding Eastern European perspectives / [ed] George Tesar, Malibar Florida U.S.: Krieger Publishing Company , 1994, 41-51 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
The command economy that ruled in Eastern Europe for many decades resulted there in a strong belief in economies of scale with large and specialized production units. Small organizations and enterprises were only marginal phenomena. In transition to a market economy, small firms are expected to play a central role. Small firms are the base of the business population pyramid; they serve as examples for people trying to learn the core of entrepreneurship. The flexibility of small firms will be the effective variable needed to confront the turbulent future of Eastern Europe. Small firms will have an important role in building the necessary business infrastructure in the transition from a command economy to a free market economy.
