What’s the Big Idea?

The Big Idea is that embracing the fact that Entrepreneurial Thinking
is a process and not an inherent individual character trait.

Here’s what’s new: Our premise is that Entrepreneurial Thinking entails a wholesale reconsideration of what defines “good management” to reflect the global challenges, hyper-competitive environment, and changing nature of work facing organizations today.

The specific nine tenets of Entrepreneurial Thinking build upon the definition of entrepreneurship itself Howard Stevenson first coined in 1983—”the pursuit of opportunity beyond the resources currently controlled”—that the time was considered revolutionary.

Stevenson’s construct changed the concept of an entrepreneur from a descriptive phrase of an individual who by definition started a business to a way of thinking about the world that could be adopted by any individual or organization – which was to chart behavior by beginning with the identification of opportunities and pursuing them, regardless of existing resource constraints.
