This book addresses the burgeoning interest in organizational learning and entrepreneurship, bringing together for the first time a collection of new papers dealing explicitly with entrepreneurial learning. Where past books have examined learning in a corporate context, Harrison and Leitch focus instead on the learning process within entrepreneurship and the small business. Areas covered include:

  • a review of the concept of entrepreneurial learning and the relationship between entrepreneurial learning and the wider literatures on management and organizational learning,
  • a review and development of a number of conceptual models of the process of learning in entrepreneurial contexts
  • an illustration of the applications of concept of entrepreneurial learning in a range of contexts
  • an international perspective on entrepreneurial learning.
