Corporate Entrepreneurship Training Evaluation: A Model and a New Research Perspective
Byrne, Janice; Fayolle, Alain
Industry and Higher Education, v23 n3 p163-174 Jun 2009
This paper looks at corporate entrepreneurship (CE) training and proposes some insights for its evaluation. The literature review begins by outlining what corporate entrepreneurship entails and the rationale for a firm adopting a more entrepreneurial posture. Subsequently, organizational devices for encouraging corporate entrepreneurship are explored, with a particular focus on the practice of training. Assessing the effect of training programmes leads to the question of how the programmes, especially CE programmes, can be effectively evaluated. An evaluative framework for CE training initiatives is proposed. The paper draws on evaluation principles from three fields of literature--training, adult education and entrepreneurship education. This study focuses on the "changes in learners" that occur as a result of training. The evaluation insights gained from these three fields are coupled with an individualized measure of entrepreneurial orientation to present a schematic of effective CE training evaluation. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
