The paper is aimed at analysis in the areas of strategic management, competitive position and decision-making in small and medium-sized construction enterprises according to their managers. It presents the results of the survey conducted in Czech Republic and Austria. The results are mutually compared and the differences between the enterprises and their managers are identified. For the questionnaire survey two approaches were used, namely resource-based view and the marketbased view, for the identification of the competitive position of the enterprises. There are also questions focused on propositions for manager's decision-making. All the acquired results are statistically evaluated with appropriate commentaries.

It also provides evidence of different approach of the Czech and Austrian enterprises in analysed areas. Results can be used by managers to understand links and different approaches to those areas in Czech and Austrian small and mediumsized construction enterprises.
