Abstract

Small manufacturing enterprises in Hong Kong are getting increasingly globalized and therefore need to use decision support tools/ technologies to remain competitive. As they lack the expertise to deploy these tools/ technologies, they either avoid their use or fail in their successful use or institutionalization. A number of approaches have been suggested for institutionalization but many of them provide only the critical success factors and not the dynamics of the institutionalization process. This paper suggests a process-oriented strategic framework for institutionalization of these tools/ technologies, which identifies critical factors for successful institutionalization. Finally, it describes a case study where the framework was applied and was successful.
