This insightful book presents current thinking and research evidence on the role of human resource management policies and practices in increasing service quality, efficiency and organizational effectiveness in the public sector.
Serial entrepreneurship refers to individuals who have established two or more companies. The term ‘serial entrepreneur’ can include many types of individuals, including freelance entrepreneurs, corporate entrepreneurs and investors—not just owner-managers—who are critical to the establishment and operation of ventures. Burke cautions, however, that scholars have paid far more attention to serial entrepreneurs as opposed to broader phenomenon of serial entrepreneurship: what is entrepreneurial persistence and how do associated roles evolve over time? Previous owner-manager experience can lead to subsequent roles as an investor or freelance serial entrepreneur, a topic ripe for future study.
