Descrizione | IndiceGli autori |


This book reviews some of the fundamental issues that underlie the present international debate on the theme of entrepreneurship, which has focused the attention of several schools of thought, to deeper our understanding of its theoretical implications but also to improve the methods and scope of empirical research.
Its diverse topics, ranging from policy to entrepreneurial instruments, all share a concern for the factors that bring about business development, understood primarily not in terms of dimensional growth but as an opportunity for pursuing entrepreneurial opportunities in an increasingly complex competitive setting. In line with this concern, the book addresses more specific aspects, many of which await further investigation.
As a theme, entrepreneurship is attracting considerable interest, thanks to the wide spectrum of cases, experiences and new phenomena observed in global competition, which involve both the behaviour of firms and the new arrangements and behavioural patterns of the markets they compete in. The purpose is not only to find suitable interpretive patterns but also representational models that are effective and thus capable of expressing normative values.
