Abstract

Purpose – This paper aims to contribute to risk management studies in small and medium enterprises (SMEs) by examining the complicated relationship between risk-taking behavior and firm performance. Design/methodology/approach – The study conducted a survey of the Indonesian SME owner-managers and used partial least squares structural equation modeling to examine the mediating effect of pricing capability and moderating effects of information technological turbulence. Findings – The results do not only confirm the positive impact of risk-taking behavior on firm performance but also identify that impact of risk-taking behavior on firm performance is more effective at the low information technological turbulence than at the high one. Research limitations/implications – This study relied on information from the owner-managers in SMEs, which may bias against the perspective of their employees and the business partners. Originality/value – This study advances the risk-taking behavior research in SMEs context by introducing the effect of pricing capability and information technological turbulence.
