Studying successful entrepreneurs has the potential for considerable learning and positive role modelling. You mustfind and research a successfulAustralianentrepreneur that you find interesting and that you admire. This may include social entrepreneurs as well as for-profit entrepreneurs.


Tasks:

  1. Write a report in which you summarise your most important learning and insights you have gathered from your (secondary) research about the entrepreneur you have chosen. Explore and discuss patterns, differences and similarities evident between entrepreneurship theory and what you found written about your entrepreneur’s mindset, orientation, and behaviour.
  2. Provide a 1minute in-class presentation (talking only, no slides nor media, but an in class handout is allowed) in which you introduce and provide a summary of your entrepreneur and report. It is important that you highlight the entrepreneurial orientation of your chosen entrepreneur, and justification of your opinion.

Below are some aspects that you could investigate.Use these as a guideline only and make sure you cover everything assessed by the marking rubric:

  • Why can this person be categorised as an entrepreneur?
  • What type of entrepreneur is your chosen entrepreneur?
  • What are your entrepreneur’s major talents and shortcomings (as an entrepreneur)?
  • How would you describe your entrepreneur’s temperament?
  • How would you describe the entrepreneurial orientation of the person you are studying? (essential - assessed in rubric)
  • What things motivate your entrepreneur to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities?
  • What surprised you most about your entrepreneur’s behaviour?
  • Through your research, what was confirmed /contradicted about entrepreneurship?
  • What new insights emerged?
  • How important is teamwork to your entrepreneur?
  • What hurdles did he/she overcome?
  • What mistakes did he/she make?
  • Of what importance was networking to your entrepreneur?
  • Which “tools of the trade” is he/she using?
  • What factors support/hinder his/her entrepreneurial behaviour?
  • In what ways does this study inform your knowledge of entrepreneurship?

The key to this evaluation is the way in which you integrate the information you have collected about your entrepreneur with the content of this course and the theories (such as entrepreneurial orientation and the entrepreneurship process) underpinning entrepreneurship. It is not simply a list and outline of the events and activities of your selected entrepreneur, but the way in which you convey a focused and sustained argument supported by literature; appropriate for integrating theory and practice.

To this extent, you are to apply (and appropriately reference, both in-text and in the reference list) at least 10 sources (to include at least 5 academic journal articles, plus additional media or newspaper articles, periodicals, web links, blogs, social media and so on.

Executive summary
Entrepreneurship is not an easy job and it requires vision and consistent working with the trust that the vision is going to become reality with the amount of work we invest. A forward-thinking vision is capable enough to inspire and engage others. The vision drives people by their focussed and strong business vision. It is the key to courage which is needed in every business to take bold decisions that mostly come around with huge risks. A leader with motivational thinking or motivational speaking skills can easily inspire others to work harder for the common goal. Leadership skills are also related to various other processes within an organization. The managers should be able to solve the various conflicts that might surface in various situations. Leaders find ways to solve problems without any bias, even firing critical situations. What it takes to be a leader and therefore that leader is willing to put in order to become one speaks a lot about his consistent position in the market. This report is a detailed analysis of Azim Premji, one of the inspiring leaders from India who has turned into an impeccable leader starting from the base as an employee and an electrical engineer. For an entrepreneur to be successful, I feel like he must go through all the steps from being an intern to an employee to a leader and further. Being an optimistic person, I always try to be cautious and factual about the situations, which I think are the two most important qualities of being an entrepreneur. Given that, Mr. Azim Premji has been an inspiration to me since the beginning and I would like to follow the exact step by step process to grow.

Management styles differ from one person to another and every style is influenced by the experiences and perspectives of the leader.
