  • Definition # 1

    Being enterprising is developing productive ideas and using initiative, innovation and industry to create something of value even when things are difficult and uncertain and involves the risk of losing something valuable.

    Enterprise is taking advantage of what might be' (possibilities), rather than accepting what will be (fate). Many enterprising people have a heightened desire to make things happen and sometimes with a particular style, such as tenacity or flair. In a business setting it is called entrepreneurialism, but you also need enterprise to run a club, a household, a good classroom or to help yourself and others. Paul Kearney

  • Definition the enterprising personAn enterprising individual has a positive, flexible and adaptable disposition toward change, seeing it as normal and as an opportunity rather than a problem. To see change in this way, an enterprising individual has a security born of self-confidence, and is at ease when dealing with insecurity, risks and the unknown. An enterprising individual has the capacity to initiate creative ideas... and develop them through into action in a determined manner.

    An enterprising individual is able, even anxious, to take responsibility, and is an effective communicator, negotiator, influencer, planner and organiser. An enterprising individual is active, confident, purposeful, not passive, uncertain and dependent.Towards An Enterprising Culture Colin Ball, OECD Education Monograph, Paris 1989

  • Broad and narrowNarrow definition i.e. entrepreneurialism, private small business...

    Broader definitions i.e. being enterprising in all aspects of life (including the commercial setting i.e. entrepreneurialism)

    Evidence suggests the goals of entrepreneurialism can be achieved through pursuing the broader definition of being enterprising but not necessarily vice versa.

  • Approaches/purposesEducation about enterprise

    Traditionally, enterprise education has concentrated on giving students knowledge of the world of work and business, i.e. learning about enterprise. The focus, however, has been on economics and commerce, with an exclusive private-sector flavour. It is important to include an enterprise in the public and community sectors of complex modern societies.

    Education for enterprise

    The emphasis is on promoting enterprising behaviour and attitudes necessary to create, manage or respond to change or opportunities, wherever they may appear. Again this agenda of disposing young people favourably towards business in the private sector needs expanding.

    Education through enterprise

    The purpose is using enterprising experiences to learn any part of the curriculum. Traditionally, however, student-directed experiential learning has been limited to using mini-enterprise activities to achieve business study outcomes, and even this often happens outside the mainstream curriculum.

  • The key

    Constancy and diversity is the key!

    Teaching in an enterprising way provides the constancy

    Doing it across the curriculum provides the diversity
