This subject focuses on the design, structure, and processes for creating and managing an entrepreneurial enterprise both operationally and strategically. Aspects will include the legal and regulatory requirements for formation of a new enterprise. A key consideration will be the role of founders in early stage organisations, and the challenges that arise over the phases in the life of the enterprise, through launch, growth and maturity. An understanding of the alignment of human resources, people and talent, leadership, culture and operational practices to match strategic goals as the enterprise responds to the changing internal and external challenges is pivotal to the success of any entrepreneurial endeavour and will; be a key focus of this subject.
