Abstract

Data from diversified owner-managed businesses are reanalyzed in an exploratory effort to assess the applicability to small businesses of four measures of diversification. Results suggest that available measures can be adapted to small business but that specialized data collection methods are desirable. The primary contribution of the paper is the entension of the diversification concept to small businesses.
