Questions related to Entrepreneurial Skills
In order to survive and thrive, farmers needs to develop entrepreneurial skills and enhance their managerial competency as well as improve their entrepreneurial orientation for them to become resilient. Success is a process and before a farm entrepreneur achieve success, one must develop the characteristic of being resilient.
Has anyone any thoughts or are aware of any research when it comes to Intuition vs Sensing when it comes to entrepreneurs?
I have found, for example, The 16 personalities, which are based on Myers Briggs - (MBTI) which is an introspective self-report questionnaire indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions
And I have found one (1) profile that they call The Entrepreneurial. ESTP - Extraverted, Sensing, Thinking, and Prospecting - https://www.16personalities.com/
So, my Question is
-has any seen or being aware of any research about if entrepreneurs are or could be more of the Intuitive person or personality profile?
I.e., Extrovert/introvert, Intuitive, Think....etc.
This based on personality typology, e.g., - Sense perception, versus Intuition.
"Sensing" S and "Intuition" (N) are about how we gather information and which information we trust more strongly.
Sense perception: Perception of the world takes place directly via the five senses. The primary interest lies in the existing. Prefer information that is practical and concrete, i.e. here and now and what it means for something to remain as it is.
Intuition: Perception of the world takes place indirectly via the subconscious. The primary interest is in possibilities - what something could be or become. "What if...?" Prefers information that is theoretical and extensible, i.e. information that can change through a change of perspective.
My question is in the context of entrepreneurship development among students, especially in developing countries
Through our work, we will try to integrate two types of skills (entrepreneurial skills and managerial skills). We are looking for a method or a way to carry out the study ( integration method ).
We are looking forward to your answer thank you

Im conducting my research about student entrepreneurial skill and teacher engagement. Ang im looking for an example of questionnaire to use.
A quest for real-world examples (Best Practices) from developing countries.
Some research findings show that there is a significant relationship observed between entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial culture. Given the private sector’s involvement is essential in economic development and also that the capacity to recruit new graduates in the formal sector is very much limited, it’s highly vital that existing and new entrepreneurial cultures are adequately exploited. And, it is also necessary to link this cultural dimension with formal entrepreneurial education.
Is there any program/project successfully implemented so that those two issues are properly linked and resulted in achieving the desired goal (As Best Practice)? (Good if country and program/project examples are mentioned.)
The longer we are in the field and do sufficient reading, the easier it is to know the key journals in the field.
However, there are more and more journals merging into bigger aglomerates as well as the new ones arising, so I try using AI-based tools to upload your abstract and keyword and to find out a list of journals suitable for it.
This list will narrow down the journals examination on their credibility, indexing and impact factor:

Hello, I am researching an entrepreneurial topic related to why entrepreneurs run and start ventures with co-founders or stay as a single founder.
I am worried about relevant literature. So, if you know any literature related to my topic, can you list it in the comments?
One of the first authors aiming to differentiate between entrepreneurial knowledge and expert knowledge was Austrian economist Kirzner (1979). Kirzner (1979) suggested that the entrepreneurs may not have such domain-specific (expert) knowledge that experts may have, but it is the entrepreneur who recognizes the value of the expert knowledge. Kirzner (1979) argued that expert does not recognize the value of their knowledge or how to turn it into a profit or else the expert would be an entrepreneur.
Contrary, Desouza & Awazu (2006) stated that most entrepreneurs who open up small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) usually ‘’do so because they have knowledge in key areas of competencies and think they can compete using such knowledge’’.
So, the question still remains - does expertise reside in almost every SME ‒ is it held by experts (who are recognized for that knowledge and employed by owners or managers of SMEs) or are owners or managers of SMEs, by themselves, experts?
There are many articles distinguishing between Small Businesses Vs Startups . Apart from major differences such as access to resources and scale at they desire to operate, I believe there are many common areas of business that each can learn from the other. Though the goals of Small Business could be very different from a typical Start-Up, are there any lessons and or key takeaways for a small Business owners from Tech Startups? For Eg: What a local gourmet-Cup Cake maker can learn from any of the Food Startups ?
I think most scholars would agree that effectuation theory formulated by sarasvathy (2001) is still not a mature theory but when do you think it will reach its maturity? How would you compare the development of effectuation theory vs the development of bricolage?
I have co-authored a few articles into the subject: See below.
I studied a number of research papers on "Knowledge Entrepreneurship". However, most of the researchers conducted qualitative research. Kindly, suggest me any quantitative research on Knowledge Entrepreneurship. Moreover, recommend the developed scale for Knowledge Entrepreneurship.
How can we measure entrepreneurial skills and knowledge of university students? What is the appropriate measurement scale ?
I hope you are doing well. I wrote an article not long ago connecting effectuation theory with social representation theory and social psychology / attitudes. ( link can be found further down). How do you view the future development of effectuation theory? Im interested in a deeper connection to psychogy even if Im highly critical to effectuation in general. What are your thoughts? What are the most interesting alternatives in terms of future development? Best wishes and Happy New Year Henrik
I am very passionate about research within the HRM and Organizational Psychology fields. May I have some advice on the appropriate steps I need to take in order to write, or contribute to a published manuscript in this field?
Social entrepreneurship could be one of the career options for fresh graduate students. However, the primary goal of social entrepreneurship is to create a social value for society, meaning that generating exorbitant money (for the owners of social enterprises) is not its primary agenda. Hence, social entrepreneurship may not be a favorable career option for all students. So, how can minimizing students goal from profit orientation to slowly social orientation?
Thanks in advance.
Is it important or relevant to have a strong financial literacy base to be a good entrepreneur?

How relatively easy or difficult is it to transition and move informal entrepreneurs to formal entrepreneurs?
What is required?
What is the best approach, or what approach would you follow?
What forms of education are required?
What is the likely timespan and resources required?
If you were to teach entrepreneurship in levels or stages, how would you do this?
How many stages or levels would you have, and what would you teach at each stage or level?
What would be very easy, basic, skills and knowledge that can be easily taught and transferred in very little time?
Similarly, what would be intermediate and then advanced skills and knowledge to teach and transfer?
And what would you deem the entry requirements or prerequisites of your levels to be, as a reflection of the level and what is taught at the particular level?
How much education and knowledge does the entrepreneur need?
This is referring to common/ ordinary entrepreneurs - the average entrepreneur - and not "lucky stars" or "fly by nights".
At the same time, it also does not refer to "wannabe" or "going nowhere" entrepreneurs.
Hi, I wondering if you could help me with some paper or idea related to entrepreneurial mindset. I am planning to make on paper on it. Please leave your valuable comment.
A little over a decade ago, Vineet Nayar CEO of HCLT, developed the model “Employee First Customers Second” or EFCS, for his firm and in so doing built a highly successful business around that paradigm and scored major accolades for re-inventing the 21st Century Business Management Model leading to a book of the same name.
How is the model in practice one decade later ?
We would like to get some citations for the screening process. I have already read a lot of litterature, but as of right now it seems like private funded incubators do a lot more of screening before engaging in a start-up.
In my research Entrepreneurial Orientation (EO) is a dependent variable. EO has five dimensions. I also have a five independent variables. Is it necessary that while analyzing the effect of five independent variables on EO, I analyze each dimension of EO or I can take EO collectively and see the effect of independent variables in EO. Any helping material suggesting that dimensions of EO can be assessed collectively will be helpful.
In my university, I am establishing students Career development Center.

Please can you give me advice and resources from the experience of your organization?
There are great findings on how cognitive biasses impact entrepreneurs when developing their business. I'm looking for information on how internal entrepreneurs (intrapreneurs) biases are affected by the environment of an organization (e.g. subordinates expectations).
Would be great, if someone has a hint. Thank you.
In order to test the hypothesis of my thesis I need to find or create a database of start-ups, microentreprises, SMEs.
I would need in this database to have the name of the founder and the email adress of the company.
The goal is to analyse the possible correlation between the founder's human captial and the performance of his company.
Thanks a lot for you answers

Problems are part of the enterprise network
I want to highlight all the steps, from the idea to the market entry, that represent the best way by which every startup founder wannabe can lay a solid foundation for his/her own startup.
I'll try then to experiment this path on a project that hasn't yet become a startup, for my experimental thesis.
Any suggestion of books or papers about it, or any contact of people with whom I should speak to know more about it will be greatly appreciated.
My research "area" is the intersection of culture and entrepreneurship. The research findings are mixed (Stephan & Pathak, 2016), but entrepreneurs do share certain cultural values that separate them from non-entrepreneurs.
But a compelling question from McGrath, et al. (1992) is "whether people become entrepreneurs because they have a given set of beliefs, or because the experience of business start-up affects their system of values."
Has this question been answered by research?
Looking at measuring entrepreneurial success particularly related to networking behaviours.
I want to know about business coaching and its effect on entrepreneurship development
Would expanding the levels of flexibility for movements of talent between firms and within firms result in a positive productivity impact (refer section 1, page 5 on Policy Document attached). On a scale of Very Low, Low, Neither Low nor High, High, Very High, what productivity impact would most likely be the result ? Are there empirical data to support your assertion ?
Policy perspectives aimed in favour of unshackling SME’s of unnecessary strictures and empowering SME's to achieve talent-driven, outwardly-focused global competitiveness should feature flexibility to respond to market dynamism.
Flexibility covers a wide range of issues including:
a) Labour force training should be flexible in its delivery and not be rigidly tied to historical sectors and industries. Training content and packages should rather be dynamically adjustable and malleable to suit emergence of new sectors and industries. Responsive repackaging should be a key feature
b) The picking of winners and locking in / redirecting training resources to those ends is to be discouraged. The identification of areas of comparative advantage and repurposing training resources to those ends is also to be discouraged. Preference is for flexibility to be able to match market demands. Where appropriate, then time-limited Tax Incentives may be dynamically deployed to encourage training in emergent new sectors. However, there is a danger of having these incentives becoming institutionalised and remaining on the books way past their useful and value-enhancing period. Constant policy and legislative re-calibration would therefore be required.
c) Certification and training of the labour force should seek to produce an outcome where human talent is flexible and have the trained / certified individual be imbued with the capacity and capability to respond in a dynamic way to the varying job opportunities that will emerge over their lifelong working cycle.
d) Hire and Fire practices should be reviewed to eliminate rigidity and so adjusted to build in higher levels of flexibility in order to
(1) allow for easy and smooth movement of talent dynamically between firms and sectors, reducing stickiness and enhancing responsiveness as market demands change;
(2) allow for smooth movement within firms. As staff transition through their individual life cycles, job cycles and task cycles, Personal Productivity Performance changes and impacts their work output.; in some cases, upwardly and in some cases, downwardly. As individuals yearn for differing work-life balance states, then the SME firm needs an ability to flexibly treat with these employee desires in order to retain talent, or attract talent. Both individuals and firms need the capability and flexibility to adjust the form of engagement in order to align to these changing conditions. Where, on the other hand, the firm faces declines due to market conditions they will need flexibility to change talent engagement from one form to another (eg from flat-fee compensation base to a performance-fee base). Further, as the skillset of the talent becomes mismatched with market needs, then flexibility will be needed to enable enhanced responsiveness through training and development but also through job and task modifications. Rules for engagement, disengagement and modification of engagement would need to support innovativeness, productivity and competitiveness.

I just came across the intentions model by Krueger (2003, 2009) considering exogenous factors i.e. perceived desirability, perceived social norms, perceived self-efficacy and perceived collective efficacy. Despite many literature about the desirability, social norms, and self-efficacy, there is few notes about 'collective efficacy' and its link with entrepreneurial intention. Even in his articles, Krueger does not mention about this construct as much as the other antecedents of entrepreneurial intention. Can anyone explain how 'perceived collective efficacy' influences entrepreneurial intention?
Is the theory of planed behaviour relevant in entrepreneurial study
