This paper is concerned with designing a practical roadmap for micro and
small enterprises to build resilience to digital disruption. The paper is based
on theoretical studies of strategic management, innovation management, design
theory and theories on digital disruption from which two initial models of
resilience to digital disruption for MSE is proposed. These models are based on
the general observation that MSE are likely to fall victims to digital disruption
because of their lack of strategic horizon, innovation capacity and agility.
Because of this, a new and more dynamic framework well suited for MSE is
proposed in the paper. This framework however needs to be further developed
into a practical roadmap for resilience to digital disruption and tested empirically
which is intended to be the next step of this research. The paper therefore
concludes with the outline of a few specific areas for desired feedback.
