Abstract [en]

Henrik Florén and Joakim Tell report on their research that compares entrepreneurial work behaviour in fast- and slow-growing firms using Mintzberg’s structured observation method (1973) to study twelve entrepreneurs. In general, they found more similarities than differences in the work behaviour of the leaders in these groups. However, the study concludes that entrepreneurs in fast-growing firms spend less time on decision-making and control; they also trust their employees more. The implications of the study are that the way in which managers perform work is more important than the work itself, and that good leadership provides employees with opportunities for initiative-taking and personal growth, which in turn may lead to company growth.
