Since the 1970s, the output of Barbadian manufacturing industry has been on a steady
downward trajectory. This paper utilises a database of 308 small and medium
manufacturing firms to identify the factors that impact on the performance of
manufacturing firms in island economies. An integrated model of firm performance
including economic, organisational and innovation factors is developed and estimated using
a pooled ordinary least square model.
