Lack in motivation – the extinguishing of an entrepreneur?

Detta är en Magister-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Företagsekonomiska institutionen

Sammanfattning: This thesis analyzes and compares two cases of entrepreneurial projects. One is classified as a failure due to termination and one is classified as success and, in the time of writing, still up and running. The theoretical framework is built on the article “Entrepreneurial motivation” by Scott Shane, Edwin A. Locke Christopher J. Collins published in Human Resource Management Review. This framework is used to analyze and compare motivation in the two entrepreneurial projects. It will consist of seven variables for analysis; need for achievement, locus of control, desire for independence, passion, drive, self-efficacy, and indirect effects. The different motivations are deeply intertwined with one another and thus could affect en entrepreneur in many ways. But success breeds’ success and thus success breeds’ the motivation of an entrepreneur in an entrepreneurial process. But on the other hand, loosing one’s motivation could be the downfall of one’s entrepreneurial career.
