    This paper is for developing countries such as Pakistan institutional performers (organizations, individuals) can exert individual agency in recalibrating state strategies for SMEs infrastructure provision. A second premise is that the successful outcome of such engagements is contingent on how performers through conscious efforts motivate peers and mobilize resources and competencies to facilitate experiments. The latter prescription dovetails into the terrain of “public-private partnerships’’ (PPP) that supposedly free the private sector from an omnipresent state thus enabling it to pursue competitiveness-based policies, which are the mainstay today of economic development everywhere. This paper’s aim is to flesh out the role of institutional performers through a process-oriented mode of inquiry that underscores successful reform is underwritten by the distinctive institutional base of a region and the collective memory of its leader firms.
