Entrepreneurship & Business Management
Entrepreneurship is one of the main driving forces of economic development. Entrepreneurs create both economic and human value and wealth. Their projects are built on a vision and the available resources. While entrepreneurs each have their own story and bring in their own experience, express their own values and formulate their individual vision, an entrepreneurial mindset is their common denominator.
Developing an entrepreneurial spirit
Creating or taking over a business, leadership and management call for robust business management skills in order to master the operational and administrative activities of the company. Entrepreneurs not only perform a leadership and management function; they are also promoters, founders, and innovators, capable of influencing and pushing an organisation to surpass itself. An entrepreneur combines a set of technical and management skills, as well as skills derived from personal development. The entrepreneurial spirit is not the exclusive prerogative of business creators. Everyone is capable of entrepreneurship and of cultivating this mindset to the advantage of their own professional or even personal project.
Knowledge, know-how and attitudes evolve according to the corporate life cycle. The main stages in the life of a business vary throughout the entrepreneurial journey. Like its creator, each company is unique. However, certain steps are common to any company and executive. A company is founded on a project featuring the development of an idea that needs to be nurtured by an entrepreneurial spirit in order to become reality. This creation phase requires specific skills related to the conception of the idea and the creation and development of the business project. Taking over an existing project is an equally important alternative to creating a new business. It ensures continuity of operation and provides an opportunity to develop an existing activity. This is followed by a mature phase, which calls for business management skills. Lastly, any company may, at certain times in its life cycle, be affected by financial or other difficulties requiring specific crisis management skills.
