Entrepreneurship is a subject that has come into vogue rapidly. Governments are trying to foster it, individuals are practicing it in unprecedented numbers, and large organizations are desperately trying to return to their own entrepreneurial roots. Colleges and universities, in response, are now teaching courses on entrepreneurship, and are establishing programs devoted to it. Morris explores this new interest in entrepreneurship, why it matters, and how it can be encouraged. Many controversies and unresolved issues abound such as the basic questions: how should entrepreneurship be defined? and what will its role be in the future'. Morris examines the issues in-depth and gives readers a comprehensive summary of what entrepreneurship means for today's business organizations, their people, and society.
