Abstract:This study examines the relationship between ethical culture, organizational memory, bargaining power of buyers/suppliers, subjective norms, attitudes and contract enforcement in the developing world context of Uganda. Using a proportional stratified random sampling approach, a sample of 1500 employees was drawn from small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Uganda. Five-hundred and ninety-four questionnaires were returned, giving a response rate of 39.6 percent. Ethical culture, organizational memory, bargaining power of buyers/suppliers, subjective norms and attitudes were found to significantly predict 51.2 percent of the variance in contract enforcement behaviour in Ugandan SMEs. This finding has both policy and managerial implications which are presented in the paper. App., bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract]
