How organisations can become more entrepreneurial to achieve sustainable growth

'Building an Entrepreneurial Organisation' is a new book from Nottingham University Business School academics Simon Mosey, Hannah Noke, and Paul Kirkham.

Building an Entrepreneurial OrganisationEntrepreneurship is often focused on understanding new ventures but the entrepreneurial flame is required in growing organisations too. The book examines how organisations can become more entrepreneurial to achieve sustainable growth.

The authors show how entrepreneurship can be used to address crisis points of growth within small firms and to overcome the limitations of stagnation in large firms. By integrating entrepreneurship and innovation management, the book presents a framework to diagnose entrepreneurial behaviour within existing firms. Drawing on research and reflecting practice across a range of industries, from football, through Silicon Valley, to the retail sector, it includes insights from leading practitioners.

The authors build an understanding of entrepreneurship in context to provide diagnostic tools to help organisations make entrepreneurship central to their culture. Containing nine valuable sections, this unique book is relevant for companies, organisations and business students from undergraduate to executive education.
