Abstract

Research into the dynamics of entrepreneurial processes as they materialize in existing organizations in the public sector, especially in educational organizations has rarely been conducted. This paper aims to contribute, within the corporate entrepreneurship literature to the dynamics of educational entrepreneurship in public sector schools. The research poses the following three questions, based on the assumption that similarities may be found with entrepreneurial processes as they appear in other public organizations (Perlman and Cornwall, 1990; Brown and Cornwall, 2000): (1) How are entrepreneurial ideas (initiatives) incorporated by teachers into practice in schools? (2) What factors influence the institutionalization of initiatives in school? (3) To what extent do schools differ in the entrepreneurial processes evolving within their walls and what factors explain those differences?
