action research project focused on understanding and supporting entrepreneurial action in practice.
This is an individual project. If possible, it should be based upon your own organisation as this will grant you
better access to research resources and stakeholders.
You will conduct secondary research to support the development of:
A new entrepreneurial proposition for an organisation;
Or an idea for an entrepreneurial start-up.
The ‘proposition’ could relate to a new product or service; a new way of doing things; a new department;
implementation of something that will change the way the organisation operates e.g. software and systems; the
introduction of a new philosophy relating to human resources, production or quality, etc.
You should provide a strong argument for this opportunity in terms of market justification, exploring relevant
issues/context behind the idea, the business model/context of successful innovation, and the size and nature of
the opportunity. The evidence for this justification is secondary research and academic literature.
This project needs to provide you with an opportunity to understand and manage how to move from opportunity,
to idea, to action. This could relate to your study or employability interests and/or current interests within the
entrepreneurial management field.
In undertaking the project, students are expected to:
Identify an idea or opportunity.
Develop a strong case as to why this opportunity or idea is worthy of consideration as a project, particularly in
terms of its value to the appropriate community of practice. Appropriate secondary research, academic literature
and the use of metrics should be utilised within this section. Engagement with stakeholders can be demonstrated.
Develop a project plan to ensure completion within the identified timescales,
Identify the appropriate resources and internal and external support to develop and deliver the project,
Demonstrate how you will manage the project in terms of moving from idea to action,
