This graduate-level book transforms the strategic process for entrepreneurs into a growth-oriented approach. The book is organized to flow in the following manner: understanding the entrepreneurial perspective; and the challenge of entrepreneurial growth; gaining an appreciation for strategic planning in emerging ventures; examining the growth options for emerging ventures; and finally a discussion of the emerging entrepreneurial issues confronting the economy today. Over 30 comprehensive cases will be available on the world wide web for professors and students using this text. Thus the twelve chapters (see outline) are presented as a framework to follow and relate back to as the cases are discussed. The writing style and format of each chapter is relatively shorter and more professional in nature. Professors can pick and choose the cases most appropriate and assign them to students from the web.
