Here is a screenshot from the “Lean Startup Methodology” emphasizing the point that “entrepreneurship is management” – which is basically all about being detail oriented and execution focussed.
Way too many people call themselves “entrepreneurs” when at best they are often at best “self-employed” professionals. I *got* this distinction during a hard-hitting session with “Rattan Chugh”http://in.linkedin.com/in/rattanchugh, a former CEO of a large insurance company, and now a faculty at http://www.ciam.in, among other things.
I’d written an article on the insights just after the session. Read it here.
I am doing a year long “Owner-Manager Program” at CIAM. Recommend it to anyone who is self-employed or a running a successful business enterprise. They’ve recently started courses for budding entrepreneurs as well.
