Research Handbook on Entrepreneurship and Leadership

Edited by Richard T. Harrison and Claire Leitch

This Research Handbook argues that the study of entrepreneurs as leaders is a gap in both the leadership and the entrepreneurship literatures. With conceptual and empirical chapters from a wide range of cultures and entrepreneurship and leadership ecosystems, the Research Handbook for the first time produces a systematic overview of the entrepreneurial leadership field, providing a state of the art perspective and highlighting unanswered questions and opportunities for further research. It consolidates existing theory development, stimulates new conceptual thinking and includes path-breaking empirical explorations.

Chapter 18: Key issues in the development of the entrepreneurial university of the future: challenges, opportunities and responses

Allan A. Gibb and Gay Haskins


The chapter explores the issue of the entrepreneurial university of the future, both concept and practice. Key concepts include: the design of organisations around the dynamics of the task environment; related appropriate definitions of enterprise and entrepreneurship; their relationship to innovation of all kinds; how entrepreneurship sits with the traditional ‘idea’ of a university; Mode 2 forms of learning; public value; stakeholder relationship development and the learning organisation; and entrepreneurial organisation design and leadership. The practice builds from the experience of the Entrepreneurial University Leaders Programme and issues raised therein with a focus upon the nature and causes of increasing uncertainty and complexity and the responses and opportunities explored.
