Abstract

A significant number of government projects and policy initiatives have been introduced in recent years to motivate e-business adoption and implementation by SMEs. This chapter examines a number of those introduced during the five-year period 1999-2004. This research aims to develop our understanding of UK government policies and initiatives directed towards SMEs. It was constructed with a view to instruct feasible changes in policymaking, in order to render the process and outcome more relevant to SMEs. The implication is that future policy initiatives may become more appropriate, coherent, and accessible to SME owner/managers.
