TASK 1 Case Study Assignment Discuss briefly terms entrepreneur and entrepreneurship The analysis of Burns between the personal characteristics of owner managers and entrepreneurs is simple that the entrepreneur is a person who is starting a business or venture on his own and taking all risk and liabilities. But at the same owner manager are person who are working in an organization and giving their services to someone (Alsos, Carter and Ljunggren, 2011). They do not bear all the risk and uncertainties.

Owner managers are working for their own self interest to earn money and the entrepreneurs are working for doing something new and their personal characteristics influences them to start something new and innovative (Aulet, 2013). Entrepreneurship can be defined as the process of starting a business or organization. The entrepreneur creates a business plan, acquires the human and other needed resources. He or she is completely responsible for the success and failure of the business (Bessant and Tidd, 2011). Entrepreneurship process includes five steps idea generation, opportunity evaluation, planning, launch and growth. In the present context, these people are acting as leaders who are willing to take risk and initiatives, taking advantage of market opportunities through planning, organizing and employing resources. Application of Timmons’s core and desirable attributes Steve Jobs was a successful entrepreneur and was born in San Francisco, California. His vision was to get computers in the hands of every people and he succeeded in this mission. Timmons’ core and desirable attributes are applicable to the journey of Steve Jobs. 

Leadership – One of the best leadership quality hold by Steve job was to stay focused towards the vision. One day, Apple’s bet programmer told Steve that Apple II compute could not be made; he fired that programmer on the sport without any hesitation (Bygrave and Zacharakis, 2009). Jobs always stayed focused on the vision that he had for the Apple and made sure that every employee of the company must head towards that vision.

Commitment and determination – It is another core attribute for successful entrepreneurs. Steve was very committed and determined towards what he wanted. It was his fearless commitment and devotion towards electronic gadgets that he co-founded Apple in the year 1976 (Coate, 2007). After being removed from Apple also, he keeps on working on the same things and remained motivated always.

Opportunity Obsession – A good entrepreneur is the one who knows how to convert the ideas into opportunities. Steve did the same thing as he started business in a small garage.

From a small garage to an organization like Apple was a tough task for him but he grabbed every opportunity which came into his way (Darling, Gabrielsson and Seristö, 2007). A best quality of an entrepreneur is to make optimum use of opportunity which arises while the course of the business. 

Tolerance of risk, ambiguity and uncertainty - Steve found many risk and challenges in his entrepreneur career. He was forced to leave the position of board of directors of Apple due to some disagreements with other people. Later he indulges in his own venture by starting NEXT Computer Company by involving huge innovations in the features of computer (Denning, 2013). During facing all such challenges he coped with all the risks and was again selected as the board of directors in Apple.

Motivation to excel – One of the best qualities that an entrepreneur can learn from the journey of Steve Jobs is to remain disciplined in the work. Steve was a perfectionist and he had a very little space for errors. This created a sense of fear among the employees but it was accepted because Apple had a sterling reputation as a leader in the field. This helps in encouraging a professional atmosphere within the organization (Duening, Hisrich and Lechter, 2009). The best lesson learned from this quality is that a professional environment leads to better outcomes for staff and the business.

Evaluate whether these attributes contribute towards growth of the company The above discussed attributes are very critical to the launch and success of a business. All these qualities contribute towards becoming a successful entrepreneur. These help in achieving, what has been desired by an individual. The attributes can be discussed critically in the following manner: Leadership – It is one of the most essential qualities for a businessman. Leaders act as middle management for an organization. These persons are responsible and accountable for the performance of the employees. It is them who motivate employees towards the goals and objectives of the business (Erve, 2004). Leaders are critical to the success of the company. In the TOLL-FREE NO: +61 879057034

absence of leadership, company may fall apart from its way of vision and mission. There will be no guidance, no learning, no development, no growth and no success. Further it will be difficult for the company to create a professional environment (Shane, Locke and Collins, 2003). Commitment and determination - An entrepreneur is required to be committed and determined towards his goals and objectives. Commitment is required in efforts which are to be made for the success of the business.

He should be fearless and courageous, that means no matter what the situation, a positive attitude is required at every level (Grafton, 2011). In the absence of commitment and determination, everything will look like effortless. There will be no sign of motivation and inspiration & ultimately it will negatively affect the business of the company. But it is to be noted that commitment must take the form of confidence, not over confidence for the entrepreneur. Tolerance of risk, ambiguity and uncertainty – These skills shows how courageous and brave the entrepreneur is. It shows how bravely an entrepreneur can tolerate situations of risk, ambiguity and uncertainty. He must possess the power to face uncertain situations which may arise in any course of time (Morris Kuratko and Covin, 2010). For that purpose, assessment of risk is to be done in appropriate manner. Contingency plans can be prepared in order to face the

uncertainties related to the future. This may prevent entrepreneur from different types of business damages and losses. Lack of these may result in poor productivity and profitability. Motivation – This is an element which cannot be avoided at all under the business. Motivation is something which brings life into the entrepreneurship (Sami, 2013). It is very crucial to the success of the organization. An entrepreneur is required to be motivated from the surrounding atmosphere and aspects. It helps in improving his performance and brings lots of improvements. Through proper motivation an entrepreneur can put human resources into action, improves efficiency level of employees, leads to achievement of company goals, bring stability in the workforce and also creates friendly relations. In the absence of motivation, there will be no direction and focus (Holcombe, 2003). No extra efforts will be laid by the people and a kind of stagnancy will arise in all business activities. There will be no self development, growth, competency etc in the absence of motivation.

Conclusion On the basis of understanding the subject of entrepreneurship, it can be concluded that it is not an easy process. It requires lot of concentration and focus. Timmons’ core and desirable attributes are very essential for both existing as well new entrepreneurs. A new venture can be opened but presence of certain characteristics is very essential for an individual. Example of Steve Jobs is amazing and very inspiring for new businessmen. There are certain exceptional qualities and managerial skills of him which can offer great motivation for all kind of entrepreneurs. The difference that lies between theory and practice is that of theory is making the hypothetical idea which explains something else. But practice refers to applying that idea or task in other form to prove into action (Holcombe, 2003). Steve being an entrepreneur always believes in applying the ideas into practical form to know their results. It is good to being practical to know the situation of the task performed and achieves the result effectively. Impact of the learning According to me about creating a successful new venture there should be possible characteristics of having entrepreneurial qualities that differentiate you from others. Here, it means that one should mandatory possess such distinct qualities to create a successful new venture. He should have innovative thinking or new ideas and thoughts to start up a new venture and through passing the entrepreneurial process achieves growth. Here, in this case Steve Jobs possess such distinct qualities of an entrepreneur who works independently and innovatively to produce good results. He started Apple which was his work of excellence and which proved himself that he was a true entrepreneur.
