Introduction to Entrepreneurial Management in the CityManagement logo

Management theory and practice comes from multiple perspectives - entrepreneurial management (strategic orientation, resource orientation, management structure, reward philosophy, and entrepreneurial culture), management competencies identified by urban Extension directors around the country, and management strategies.
