Schumpeter (1934), for the first time, put the human agent at the centre of the process of economic development and assigned a critical role to the entrepreneurship in his theory of economic development. • He considered economic development as a discrete technological change. The process of development can be generalized by five different types of events:
  106. 106. • Firstly, it can be the outcome of the introduction of a new product in the market. • Secondly, it can be the result of a new production technology. • Thirdly, it may arise on account of a new market. • Fourthly, it may be the consequences of a new source of supply. • Fifthly, it may be due to the new organization of any industry 116
  107. 107. According to Schumpeter • Development is not an automatic process, but it must be deliberately and actively promoted by some agency within the system, Schumpeter called the agent who initiates the above changes as an entrepreneur. • He is the agent who provides economic leadership that changes the initial conditions of the economy and causes discontinuous dynamic changes. • By nature, he is neither technician, nor a financier, but he is considered an innovator and entrepreneurs are not solely motivated by profit.
  108. 108. A Function of Managerial Skill & Leadership: By Bert F. Hoselitz • A Function of Managerial Skill and Leadership: Hoselitz states that a person who is to become an industrial entrepreneur must have additional personality traits. • In addition to being motivated by the expectations of profit he must also have some managerial abilities and more important he must have ability to lead. • Hoselitz maintains that financial skills have only a secondary consideration in entrepreneurship.

  110. 110. The main features are: • Unlike Schumpeter, Harbison's entrepreneur is not an innovator but an 'organisation builder' who must be able to harness the new ideas of different innovators to the rest of the organization. • Such persons are not always the men with ideas or men who try new combinations of resources but they may simply be good leaders and excellent administrators. • Harbison's definition of entrepreneurship lays more stress on the managerial skills and creativity so far as organization is concerned. 120

  114. 114. • The high achievement is associated with better performance at tasks which require some imagination, mental manipulation or new ways of putting things together, and such people do better at non routine task that require some degree of initiative or even inventiveness. 124
  115. 115. • People with high achievement are not influenced by money reward as compared to people with low achievement. • People with low achievement are prepared to work harder for money or such other external incentives. For people with high achievement, profit is a measure of success and competency. 125
  116. 116. ‘Input Completing’ & ‘Gap Filling’ Function: By Liebenstein • 'Input Completing' and 'Gap filling' Function: Liebenstein identified gap filling as an important characteristic of entrepreneurship. • It is the entrepreneurial function to make up the deficiencies or to fill the gaps. • These gaps arise because all the inputs in the production function cannot be marketed because some inputs like motivation, leadership etc. are vague in their nature and whose output is undeterminate.
  117. 117. • This "gap-filling" activity gives rise to a most important entrepreneurial function namely "Input- Completing". He has to marshal all the inputs to realize final products. 127
