Advances in Entrepreneurship, Firm Emergence and Growth provides an annual examination of the major current research in the field of entrepreneurship, including firm emergence and growth research. The Advances series also publishes papers from fields such as strategy or sociology that use
entrepreneurial examples. It is a key source of articles of record for major concepts in the discipline of entrepreneurship. Volume 16 considers the central issue of academic entrepreneurship: the factors and concepts that underpin the fostering of university based entrepreneurial ventures.
Specifically, it contains research on the consequences of university technology transfer, with a strong emphasis on the entrepreneurial dimension of this activity. The theoretical and empirical manuscripts in this volume consider all aspects of how university stakeholders create, incubate, and
This is a book about working with large teams of people. Whether your team involves 30 people or 3,000, the organizational dynamics are significantly different for a project manager used to dealing with smaller teams. As the project scales up in size and complexity, the processes and skills required
change. As project leader, your focus moves from the technical aspects of project delivery to enabling, facilitating and integrating the different sub teams into a cohesive whole.Big Teams examines the research on team dynamics and the latest thinking on leadership in a project or program
environment. It features stories and case studies based on interviews with project leaders from a range of major projects and programs. Structured around three core themes - Alignment, Engagement, and Resilience - it gives you invaluable, practical guidance on setting up and running an effective
team of teams.As with all Tony Llewellyn's books, Big Teams is written in an accessible style with the focus on real-world application, but the academic underpinning is rigorous and will be a useful reference for any student studying project leadership.

The latest volume of Advances in Entrepreneurship, Firm Emergence and Growth examines many questions regarding growth. What decisions and designs of the entrepreneur lead to growth? What are the beginning stages of growth? Are there differences in what drives high growth entrepreneurship versus
slower growth entrepreneurship? Are new firms adopting novel approaches to growth? How do growth rates and patterns change over the life of the firm? What policies, infrastructure, and capabilities are necessary to for entrepreneurial regional growth at the macro level? What are the foundational
components necessary for growth across all levels of entrepreneurship?
Focusing on sustainable innovation in emerging economies, this book is amongst the first to identify how these perspectives can be used by entrepreneurs within the process of recognising opportunities.
As identifying opportunities is fundamental to successful entrepreneurship, it is crucial for aspirant entrepreneurs to identify appropriate openings that help them gain a competitive advantage in the international marketplace. Whilst there are an abundance of opportunities available, assessing them
in terms of their timeliness and relevance is vital.
Each chapter introduces a new way of looking at entrepreneurial opportunities in a range of different contexts including emerging markets, franchise relationships, pricing and revenue management, and the tourism sector. This global, cross-disciplinary perspective of entrepreneurial opportunities
offers a unique blending of multiple theoretical viewpoints which are useful for researchers of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurs themselves. Enabling the development of both a social and financial view of entrepreneurship, Vanessa Ratten curates a collection which characterises and responds to the
contemporary market pressures felt by business leaders worldwide.
Agency leaders spend the majority of their time on three areas – their people, clients and new business. These are all important levers for consultancy growth. But too often, agency owners forget two more essential tools for growth: attention to the numbers, and investment in their
The consultancy leadership role can seem like an endless stream of fires to put out. It can leave leaders feeling as if their team, or their clients, are running their business rather than themselves. That's where this book comes in.
Grow, Build, Sell, Live features practical and implementable advice and tools to address the day-to-day reality of running a successful agency. In addition to giving guidance on people, clients and new business, the book covers leadership and the numbers in detail to ensure leaders have the tools
and knowledge to be in control.
The content draws on proven approaches, helpful science and real-life examples to give practical recommendations to improve readers’ ability to achieve the controlled growth which is essential to agency success.
If you are thinking about starting your own agency; have started one and hit your first round of growing pains, or are a veteran looking for an exit, this book is for you. It will appeal to current and aspiring agency owners who want to understand and be conscious of their choices and take control
of their agency.
Volume 18 will focus on approaches to thinking about and creating the start-up. Both theoretical and empirical manuscripts that consider all aspects of start-up planning, thinking and action will be considered. We also encourage practice-based research and manuscripts that explore cutting-edge
pedagogical approaches. The papers in Advances reflect many state-of-the-art topics and approaches, and are written by leading researches in the field, making each volume an important source of information for virtually all entrepreneurship researchers. One of the distinctive competences of research
volumes such as Advances is that the chapters can be published without page restrictions allowing for greater detail in the background, development, and implementation of ideas than is possible in journal articles. This provides authors with the opportunity to fully express their key ideas, provide
much more complete support, and include relevant multi-page appendices. In effect, the Advances series provides authors the opportunity to publish an "article of record" of their major theoretical or empirical ideas, and see it disseminated to a wide audience.

We are pleased to present this 2nd edition of Technological Innovation, originally published in 2008. Profiting from technological innovation is a key strategic challenge in technology-intensive industries because it requires not only scientific and engineering expertise, but also an understanding
of how business and legal factors facilitate commercialization. This volume presents a multidisciplinary view of issues in technology commercialization and entrepreneurship. Chapters cover commercializing inventions in the context of the legal system and the complementary assets needed; the benefits
and liabilities associated with multidisciplinary commercialization teams, including a basic guide to patents and designs; elements of strategy, including industry analysis and strategy, marketing strategy, and alliances; and finally, the financial issues in commercialization.
Becoming a successful entrepreneur is impossible without accepting risk – the question is which risk to take and at what time. Expert authors Thomas G. Pittz and Eric W. Liguori draw on years of working with and in early-stage ventures to provide guidance for managing the risk associated with
these decisions. Throughout this book, they offer practical, no-nonsense advice for marketing and financing your business, bringing on partners and employees, networking with key connectors, and launching your business as inexpensively and aggressively as possible.
Following lean startup logic, The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Risk and Decisions: Building Successful Early-Stage Ventures cuts through to the strategically important – and emotionally charged – decisions that separate the successful entrepreneurs from the unsuccessful. It is designed
to help entrepreneurs move quickly, rapidly iterate their business models based on customer feedback, and provide guideposts for managing the risks inherent in all startup ventures.
Entrepreneurial dilemmas play an important, though heavily underexposed, role in the life cycle of the small firm. This book defines the entrepreneurial dilemma as a situation where entrepreneurs have to choose between multiple future courses of action concerning their firm, without sufficient
information to make that choice.
The Entrepreneurial Dilemma in the Life Cycle of the Small Firm enables lecturers, researchers and practitioners in the fields of entrepreneurship, small business development and business administration to understand these entrepreneurial dilemmas and ways to resolve them.
This book presents an in-depth analysis of the modern theories in the field of entrepreneurship, including innovation, sustainable entrepreneurship, characteristics of small businesses, the life cycle of the firm, entrepreneurial behavior and small business finance.
Enno Masurel provides a clear overview of the opportunities that teaching entrepreneurship in a higher education context offers, and embodies this teaching within ten universal cases that will help readers to further understand the the dilemmas faced by entrepreneurial activity in the development of
