Every now and then, I pick up one of Peter Drucker’s books, andI read a few passages looking for inspiration. They are so brilliantly written that I could cry.
This passage from “Innovation and Entrepreneurship” just caught my attention. And I cannot refrain from sharing it:
Entrepreneurship is ‘risky’ mainly because so few of the so-called entrepreneurs know what they are doing. They lack the methodology. They violate elementary and well-known rules. This is particularly true of high-tech entrepreneurs. (…) (Entrepreneurship) needs to be systematic. It needs to be managed. Above all, it needs to be based on purposeful innovation.
Dramatic, but he does make an interesting point there.
