in Review of Business and Economics (2010)

Whereas it is obvious that the failure process can vary from one firm to another (Argenti, 1976; D'Aveni, 1989; Laitinen, 1991), to date, few researchers have worked on the detection of several explanatory failure patterns. In addition, none of the reviewed research really focuses on small firms while their failure is important and particular (Julien, 2005). Considering these observations and on the basis of two complementary statistical analyses (Thiétart, 2003), this article identifies, among a sample of 208 small Belgian distressed firms, a taxonomy of five explanatory business failure patterns, i.e. five homogeneous groups of small firms on the basis of the reasons for their failure. As the detection of the fundamental explanatory failure factors is the basis of failure prevention (Argenti, 1976), the identification of these patterns is of crucial importance for a better understanding and for a better prevention of this phenomenon [less ▲]

After an in-depth review of the scientific literature dedicated to (small) business failure causes (Crutzen et Van Caillie, 2008), it comes out that mismanagement is, by far, the failure cause which is the most commonly evoked by previous researchers (Argenti, 1976; Wichman, 1983; Newton, 1985; O'Neill and Duker, 1986; Thornhill and Amit, 2003). Nevertheless, the concept of « mismanagement » is relatively vague and large (Bruno et al., 1987; Sheldon, 1994). It is thus now necessary to clarify it if one wants to better understand the causes of small business failure and, in fine, to better prevent this phenomenon (Argenti, 1976). In particular, it is essential to distinguish between the main categories of managerial problems small businesses can be faced to in order to be able to better anticipate their failure (thanks to adequate trainings, for example) and in order to propose adequate remedies to specific managerial problems small distressed firms are confronted to. In this context, the current article identifies, on the basis of two complementary statistical analyses, three specific patterns for badly-managed firms, amongst a sample of 91 small distressed firms.

Whereas it is obvious that the failure process can vary from one firm to another (Argenti, 1976; D'Aveni, 1989; Laitinen, 1991), to date, few researchers have worked on the detection of several (explanatory or subsequent) failure patterns. In addition, none of the reviewed research really focuses on small firms while their failure is important and particular (Haswell and Holmes, 1989). Considering these observation and on the basis of an abductive and qualitative analysis (Thiétart, 2003), this paper identifies, among a sample of 208 small distressed firms, a taxonomy of five explanatory business failure patterns, i.e. five homogenous groups of small firms on the basis of the reasons for their failure. As the detection of the fundamental explanatory failure factors is the basis of failure prevention (Argenti, 1976), the identification of these patterns is of crucial importance for a better understanding and for a better prevention of this phenomenon amongst small businesses.
