THE ROLE OF THE ENTREPRENEUR IS TO ENVISION THE BUSINESS AS AN ENTITY HAVING A SEPARATE LIFE FROM THE OWNER.
The entrepreneur, the energetic, imaginative dreamer creates grand visions, catalyzing a particular field of activity. He prefers to live in the future, not in the past, and seldom in the present. Innovating, strategizing, and creating new methods of achieving desired results are his forte.
Without the manager, order, planning, and predictability would become extinct. The entrepreneur minds the future and thrives on change, while the manager lives in the past and clings to statusquo. All great works arise from the synthesis of the entrepreneur’s vision and the manager’s pragmatism.
The technician is the doer. An entrepreneur, manager, and technician dwells within us. An incredibly competent individual will project a balanced mix of them.
An entrepreneurial business lacking a manager to give it order and predictability, and a technician to put it to work is primed to fail. To succeed, a business needs the balanced input of an entrepreneur,manager, and technician.
In a business setting, the entrepreneur leads, the manager supervises, and the technician works. Envisioning the business as an entity having a separate life from the owner, is the work of the entrepreneur.
