|Abstract||Despite a growing interest in the import ance of technology management, relatively little research has addressed technology issu es from the persp ective of small and medium enterprises.

The results suggest that a variety of factors, such as innovation strategy, organizational restructuring, cu tbacks in capital investment, and human resource management practices are associated with res pondent perceptions of the importance of technology.|
