The author argues that SMEs have lower risk bearing capabilities than larger enterprises and will explore higher risk. How does risk bearing capabilities of SMEs impact local economies? What demographic factors such as education, age, or gender impact risk bearing capabilities? Is there a need for a risk bearing capability scale? This paper will present a literature review on risk taking and change management and describe the research design and methods in preparation for research. To explore this issue, the author proposes developing a risk bearing capability measurement scale for SME to measure risk tolerance and perceptions. Further study and critical analysis is needed, particularly examining SME stability and viability in economic contexts.
