The Innovativeness of Small and Medium Enterprises in Kuwait

Abstract— Despite much interest in innovativeness, there is little research that has attempted to explore the innovativeness of SMEs in developing countries in general and in Kuwait in particular. This study therefore aims to explore the innovativeness of SMEs in Kuwait. A survey of 244 SMEs in Kuwait was conducted to achieve the study objective. The study results showed that overall SMES in Kuwait are adopters in terms of their innovativeness level. SMEs in Kuwait generally practice five dimensions of innovativeness (i.e. organizational, process, product, culture and resource) in their business operations. In light of the results, several recommendations were suggested to maintain and increase innovativeness of SMEs in Kuwait. 

Index Terms— innovativeness, innovation capabilities, SMEs, Kuwait
