Method Survey: Baseline survey (DELOS)
Description "As far as the baseline survey was concerned , a sample activity was carried out and a standard questionnaire was elaborated comprising of the following sections: 
  1. Details of the firms : (what it does, how many employees etc..) whose objective was to collect general information 
  2. Company history whose objective was to understand how the firm has developed historically 
  3. Networks in order to analyse the kind of network existing between small businesses in the area and among businesses and the community as a whole
  4. Learning processes in order to analyse the way in which the firm maintain and develops its skills, expertise and know how 
In carrying out the base line survey each partner was free to adopt the most appropriate approach to SMEs : in most case the direct interview was used, in other phone or mail interviews were used. (Sarcina, 1998, p. 40)
