Testing a Typology of Entrepreneurialism: Emerging Findings from an Academy with an Enterprise Specialism
Woods, Philip A.; Woods, Glenys J.
Management in Education, v23 n3 p125-129 2009
Based on initial analyses of a case study of an Academy with a specialism in business and enterprise, this article examines how the Academy appears to be constructing meanings around enterprise. It tests the usefulness of a typology of entrepreneurialism (Woods et al., 2007) as a means of exploring the degree to which meanings ascribed to entrepreneurialism are fixed around business models, or take in or construct different or broader conceptions of entrepreneurial activity. For reasons of space, the article draws principally from the study's interview data from staff and other adults. Students' views and other data will be discussed in future publications. In this article the authors concentrate on the relational dynamics of the constituent dimensions of the typology and suggest two models that express different facets of how enterprise is seen in the Academy.
