Report for BIS from the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) that seeks to identify the key drivers of business success and failure through a review of existing literature. Looks at the extent to which these drivers can be measured, aiming to enhance the validity of evaluations of economic impact of projects, programmes and policies on businesses. Aims to inform future work undertaken by the department to evaluate the impact of government interventions on the business community, helping to identify a set of business characteristics that would ideally be employed as matching variables or control variables within future evaluations.
