Published work

Dr. Damian Dunbar provides valuable insight into the underutilization of billions of dollars of U.S. government funding for small business subcontracting in his publication entitled Strategies Used by Small Business Leaders to Obtain Government Contracts and Subcontracts.  It is available as an e-book, softcover, and hardcover.

Dr. Dunbar conducted a qualitative multiple case study that explores the strategies five government support small business leaders in the mid-Atlantic region used to obtain U.S. government subcontract awards to remain sustainable.  Small business documents and participants’ responses to semi-structured interviews showcase key components.  Case study analysis and cross-case comparisons using methodological triangulation were completed.

This study explores education, experience, and networking.  The study’s goal is to drive social change by providing small business leaders with new strategies to obtain contracts and subcontracts and increase organizational opportunities.  This benefits small businesses, as well as improves the local economy.  To purchase this publication, please click this link drdamiandunbar.com.
