Assessing the vulnerability of SMEs: a qualitative analysis

Abstract : The Very Small Business (VSB) and the Small or Medium-sized Enterprise (SME), like any other socioeconomic entity, faces multiple risks (fire, loss of a major supplier, work-related accidents, failure of a partnership, industrial espionage, etc.). However, unlike their larger counterparts, they do not have at their disposal dedicated tools for global risk management and thus lack ways to ensure their sustainability. In this context, the AFNOR Group, in collaboration with the Centre for Research on Risks and Crises of MINES ParisTech, carried out a research project to address this issue.
