Abstract

With embedded knowledge flows and innovation linked to communities of
practice as well as technology, Australian small and medium size enterprises
(SMEs) have the potential to both collaborate and compete by taking advantage
of knowledge platforms founded on digital technologies and new relationships.
A conceptual model is introduced that maps access to knowledge flows against
limitations such as size and lack of interaction. It is suggested that fostering a
culture of connectivity and trust amongst SMEs to initiate knowledge exchange
may offer a potential solution to the possible loss of competitive advantage for
SMEs in the digital economy.
