Models and frameworks

As both theorist and practitioner my main intellectual and practical interests have been in the areas of:

  • the relationship between innovation, entrepreneurship and opportunity evaluation
  • entrepreneurial process
  • entrepreneurial context
  • Indigenous entrepreneurship
  • new venture creation
  • entrepreneurship education
  • the methodology of entrepreneurship research

Much of my work has resulted in the creation of models and frameworks in these areas. These artifacts succinctly capture the essence of my arguments and function as useful tools for practitioners as well as researchers and teachers.

A selection of models and frameworks developed in my work – and links to the papers which generated them – are provided below.
