Considerations, Concerns and Suggestions for Success
Small businesses that create websites and other internet based digital products are at a disadvantage to larger firms for several reasons. Because they are small (for the purposes of this article, small means less than 50 employees), they lack the resources of the bigger firms. This means that the projects they take on must be smaller in scope and usually timeframe. A paradox forms because of this relationship. Small businesses take on small projects because they lack the resources for big projects, yet to be competitive, they must take many small projects on at once, many of which will inevitably have delays and changes to timeframes, and lead to the firm lacking resources anyway when deadlines coincide.
