The Knowledge Entrepreneur introduces the principles, skills, and knowledge required to be a knowledge entrepreneur or "intrapreneur." It outlines the process for developing and implementing business plans and proposals for knowledge-based initiatives. It also offers insight into the nature of knowledge, innovation, and entrepreneurship. For the individual entrepreneur who is just starting to develop a business concept, employees who want to become employers, and for entrepreneurially-minded people working in larger information-related organizations (e.g. libraries and information, technology, and software businesses), this book will be an invaluable tool.
Stan Skrzeszewski founded Advanced Strategic Management in 1992, where he continues as a consultant specializing in bringing people and technology together.
