According to my view Entrepreneurs and manager both have most
contribution among their roles depending upon working ideas thinking
ability and their performance.

As entrepreneur is the one who can creates new diplomatic products, by
their innovative ideas which are really motivational but they can not
express properly in the market.

While the manager have that quality of managing directing & organizing
so that manager can communicate the product with audience easily
whichever made by entrepreneurs in efficient way.

According to me both of manager and entrepreneurs are very important
because there are one quotation that EVERY COIN HAVE TWO SIDES
just like entrepreneur and manager are two sides of same coin.
Entrepreneur have the idea about the business and he should also have
the managing capability but entrepreneur is not enough to manage all
the affairs of the business so sometimes he also needs a separate
manager to give his innovative idea to make his business successful.

An entrepreneur is can also creates jobs by creating a business model
with his/her innovative idea. Even a housewife can become a successful
entrepreneur by making a unique food item and convert it to business
by selling it for profit.

Whereas a manager is one who is employed and will manage the business
set up by someone else for a salary.

We Need More Entrepreneurs than Managers :

1) Entrepreneurs create innovative products which could be easily
consumed by our huge population.

2) Managers mostly try to move in Foreign Banks and consulting firms
and thus they contribute less to the nation than what Entrepreneurs do.

3) More Entrepreneurs means more competition. This will help in
improving the quality of the product and will also help in reducing the prices due to cut throat competition.

Thus is more Government support is available for the Entrepreneurs, it
will boost our economy and hence will be very beneficial.

Entrepreneurs and managers both have their own importance. But yes
entrepreneur is the one, who takes the risk of implementing his ideas and innovations. On the other hand manager is the one who works on the directions of the entrepreneur. Once the idea gets implemented by the entrepreneur, its the responsibility of the manager to stabilize the positive results of it. And without entrepreneur the existence of a manager cannot be thought of. So the need of the hour is more entrepreneurs. Who can give opportunities to the upcoming managers.

Yes I agree we want more entrepreneur. Entrepreneur creates the
opportunities to get the job but managers are required to give the right way or direction to get success.

In India there is so many people are unemployed so if more
entrepreneur they create new opportunities and people are getting job.

But the manager also important because the manage things.

Let us first start by defining who an entrepreneur is. An entrepreneur is
a person who takes risks, puts in effort & perseveres to achieve the end
result. At the end he may be rewarded for his effort. He sets examples
and shows other people that a certain thing can be achieved by being an
example himself. A manager by virtue of his profession is normally
assigned a particular task & assigned some resources. He has to complete
the assignment with the constraints imposed on him.

An entrepreneur should be a good manager to manage his team & his
resources. Managerial skills are essential for an entrepreneur to succeed.

A manager can be built with the degree only when an Entrepreneur can
be making by experience and he can make as many managers under it which may again can become an entrepreneur.

My conclusion would be that yes more Entrepreneur should be
encouraged to take this job, in this regard some kind of opportunity should be provided and let them go after it, it is the risk taking feature which makes the distinction from a manager, and I believe this people are the only one which can achieve double digit GDP for India and maintain 6 percent growth rate.

Entrepreneurs and managers are two sides of a coin in the economy. The
former establish businesses of their own and then manage them while the latter are only involved in managing. I think that entrepreneurs are very much required in our economy today because Indians still are extremely risk averse and this causes them to undermine their potential for performance sometimes. On the other hand the need for managers cannot be stressed more because they are pivotal to the running of our booming economy. An entrepreneur may not necessarily be self sufficient and may need managers because he may not be able to simultaneously look after all his concerns in his start-up.

An entrepreneur and a manager are like the driver and wheels of an
organization. The driver decides the direction and reach the destination with the help of the wheels. Managers manages all the work in any situation. The manager know how to manage the critical situations.

Entrepreneurs are tree and managers are branch that gives shape to the
whole tree. In a tree there are so many branches but each have own value there like this managers are important. Manager work on every level in pyramid but Entrepreneurs work only top level of pyramid. Managers are directly associated with each and every level of strategic planning.

Both are the two wheels of one cycle. One wheel cannot run the
organization fall down.

I think we already have a number of inventions with us, so what we are
required to do at the moment is to concentrate on managing them in a better way rather than calling out for new invention, smooth running of which will again demand management.

Hi all,

The discussion is on do INDIA need more entrepreneurs or managers.
Analyzing the current scenario India is a developing country and it is estimated that it will become the third largest economy by approx 2040. To reach up to that level INDIA has two options. One by having good managers who will manage the work outsourced by MNC's or by having more entrepreneurs who, with their long term envision and innovative ideas, open new sectors and opportunities.

India have a plenty of people with entrepreneurial skills. Even a student in an engineering college has ideas to open a consulting firm or so. But
the problem is lack of guidance, assistance and recognition and this is
what is to be provided to them to make INDIA the third largest
