Lesson 2. Multidisciplinary of entrepreneurial approaches and methods
To train in entrepreneurship is to be part of a fairly broad spectrum of possibilities. Indeed, the teaching methods and approaches are vast because they refer to complementary but very different objects of reflection and work.
Evaluating a business plan is not based on the same register as the development project of one’s company, even if the two will in fact coexist. Accompanying a senior entrepreneur in his steps will be different from a computer simulation aimed at helping generate a business plan. Watching videos does not necessarily give details of the behaviour adopted by the learners.
However, the need for training of the target group is increasing, as the realisation of a training action shows the diversity of methods and, depending on the case, will have an impact on society, the community and the stakeholders. In other words, the training will guide them in their purpose, guiding their steps until they reach their real goal.
Whichever approach or methodology for entrepreneurship the older person uses, what is certain is that entrepreneurs generate a positive impact on society:
- The Social Entrepreneur is recognised by society as a person, or company, capable of solving a collective problem by means of an innovative change in their environment.
- They help large numbers of people to solve local situations and meet their needs through ingenious solutions to inefficient aspects of the market.
- They are agents for social progress and the transformation of a community to improve the quality of life of its inhabitants.
- Their passionate nature allows them to make social causes important as objects for improvement, for which they develop projects aimed at achieving them and obtaining both social and economic benefits.
