Abstract [en]

Integration of new technology in small and medium sized firms- products put certain demands on forms of organization. External consultants are supposed to be important for the creation of integrated products in this type of companies. This paper reports on an explorative study of the importance of different roles of external consultants and what kind of value is created. Along with traditional roles of consultants this study identifies the initiative taker and contact procurer roles as important to provide economic value on an industry level. Bridging small and medium sized companies with the software consultants and academia is not a straightforward work since different cultures exists.
