Entrepreneurship: The Link Between Invention, Innovation and Success
by Evan Douglas
Entrepreneurship is a behavioural pattern that is exhibited by managers, and depends upon their underlying entrepreneurial attitudes and entrepreneurial abilities. Within the organisation, entrepreneurial behaviour will be encouraged by the existence of an entrepreneurial culture.
This book examines the attitudes, abilities and behaviours of entrepreneurial managers, the concept of new business models and the inevitability of continually changing business models, and what it takes to develop an entrepreneurial culture.
