Developing an entrepreneurial orientation has been proven beneficial to firms, but for small firms this may be too resource consuming.

The structural equation analysis of the data from 454 small firms indicates that adaptive strategy-making has the strongest impact on entrepreneurial orientation, supported by participative and intrapreneurial strategy-making
