Entrepreneurs or managers? Its an important area to be noticed as in
this growing area of industries and cut throat competition we need to focus more on maximizing profits in a smart way rather than opting for a hard way. Entrepreneurs as we all know have innovative ideas and they come up with implementing their ides into reality. Hence they are smarter than the managers who work hard all day to maximizing profits. Entrepreneurs provide us with more and more job opportunities which is real important in a country like India. Entrepreneurs takes us to the different aspects of business as well as doing business with their innovative and visionary mind. Thus giving an add on to the business field. Moreover one should prefer being an employer than an employee himself which we can achieve by becoming an entrepreneur with our creative minds! Hence in schools and colleges too students should be encouraged to become an entrepreneur by holding several product making competitions which will invite several ideas at one place and proper guidance should be given to convert those ideas into reality! After all we need more entrepreneurs and their respective ideas rather than just a manager who acts as a mere servant to entrepreneurs!

Hi all. As the discussion goes on I would share my views saying that an
entrepreneur and a manager are like the driver and wheels of an organization. Any sophisticated and branded car no matter how beautifully it is designed, cannot ascend unless it is driven by someone (an entrepreneur). On the other hand, when the same car doesn't have wheels (the manager) , it cannot move ahead in-spite of being provided with an efficient driver. The driver decides the direction and reach the destination with the help of the wheels. Similarly the entrepreneur sets the goals and the manager takes all the risk to reach the desired goals. It demands the knowledge (Innovation) of the entrepreneur and skill (Ability) of the manager.

As Leonardo DiCaprio would say:"An idea is the most resilient, highly
contagious parasite. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it's almost impossible to eradicate". But who will bring those ideas into actions?Those who dare to bring their ideas into practice and create something new, something innovative are the real leaders in today's highly competitive world. If you run out of ideas you are gonna loose the race sometime in near future. Managers do a fine job by ensuring that the ideas implemented are properly functioning. But what will they do if there is no idea?Steve jobs to Mark Zuckerberg to Bill Gates all of them have one thing common:they though out of the box, they possessed the highly entrepreneurial spirit. And today we have apple, Facebook and Microsoft. Why do we fail to create such world class companies?because of the lack of entrepreneurs.

We must foster and develop the environment where entrepreneurs are
appreciated, assisted and recognized if we want to see any Microsoft like company coming from India.

I think the need of entrepreneurs are must as well as need of managers
because every entrepreneur is always works as a manager if we want entrepreneurs so we must need of managers.

Hello to all, the combat between entrepreneurs and managers, I mean
which one do we need most, in this point what I want say is managers can quit their current job and look for another one but when an entrepreneur quits its all over for him and when if such things happen a country like India will be always in developing stage I mean will never developed. Thanking you.

An entrepreneur is a manager in itself, even he is more than a manager
serving more people, takes more risk and responsibility compared to a manager. So in my opinion society needs an entrepreneur first than a manager. More over an entrepreneur initiates a new business, concept and serves the society various ways where as a manager undertakes limited risk and works for the organisation and serves the purpose for which he/she is employed for.

Yes, we need more entrepreneurs because they are working for society,
culture and towards improving our system. And they guys have
exceptional risk taking ability than managers.

And entrepreneur can think beyond limits. They are tricky.

I think both managers and entrepreneurs are important for any
organization because managers manages all the work in any situation and entrepreneur gives the innovative ideas.

Hi friends, we know very well that every business goes on by its
entrepreneur that is the source of the profit without entrepreneur there is not any business grown up, manager manage the business that means how to manage the profit, loss, product price, product range etc., that is the duty of the manager. Entrepreneur is the part of the business without entrepreneur business is not possible but without manager business is possible initially.

Its mean to say that when you start the business initially you must have
the money not manager, initially you are the manager of your own business. When your profit is increases than you thought about other person to manage your company.

In other case when you have the lot of capital than you must thought
about manager and other employee to manage the company. In that case also entrepreneur is more important that manager for profit.

I think both the manager and entrepreneur are important for the
developing countries, because the manager know how to manage the critical situations, and entrepreneurs are the investors and they also know have the managing skill.

This discussion is going very interesting. I also like to contribute my
views. Entrepreneurs are innovative, visionaries and create
opportunities as some of us already made this point. In a developing
country with such population like India, I would say we need more
Entrepreneurs than Managers to lay more roads to towards achieving
development in all the sectors. We have seen CHINA as an example.

Entrepreneur creates the opportunities to get the job but managers are
required to give the right way to get success. If I get an opportunity then I will get the chance to give the right direction to achieve success to my company.

Both entrepreneurs and managers are necessary for organisations. It is
the entrepreneur who takes the initiative and risk to establish a
company. An entrepreneur should not only provides jobs for himself
but for thousands of people working in the organisation. Again, when the
organisation set by an entrepreneur expands, the need for managers
also increases. It is the manager who manages the organisation in the
midst of rivals, copes up with the change and expand the business set by
an entrepreneur. So we need both entrepreneurs and managers but the
first prefer is given to entrepreneurs because it is only when there are
entrepreneurs that the managers would get jobs.

As an Entrepreneur, I would like to admit that, Entrepreneur are not
enough for making any business successful. I have worked in a MNC where manager rules, they focus on process not on product. But, after a certain point, you could feel that managers are necessary, since things are getting mess. Manager will bring process to manage that mess.

According to me we need entrepreneurs but not more than managers. If
to say about a team so there is always only one leader and others are the followers. Any target can achieve through only with team work where the number of manager will always be high than entrepreneurs. A leader is sufficient to lead the whole team but leader can not do anything without the team members so we need entrepreneurs but not more than managers.

An entreprenuer starts and operates a venture always keeping his vision
in his mind.

He is directly involved in the success of an organisation. His business
gives the employment to others and a manager is one such employee. A manager's work is to apply his management techniques to meet the objectives of an organisation.

I feel that a developing country like ours needs more entrepreneurs like
Dhirubhai ambani, JRD tata, Subhash Chandra, Narayan Murthy etc who with their innovative ideas can provide employment to our people which can greatly affect the economy of our country. Also, at the same time it will reduce our dependence on foreign companies for generating employment.

Sowmya said: (Thu, Mar 22, 2012 11:45:36 AM)

In the present trend of growth in entrepreneurship and managers, I
would support for entrepreneurship as it mainly focuses on the type of firm they are putting on in the market. So the need for the development of every field is very vital.

Managers are the ones who tend to manage very many companies but
the type of firm also carries importance as it stands as a platform for the sustainability of employment point of view and the place to showcase their talent.
