PTS: 5
22. ANS:

The process of starting a new venture is embodied in the entrepreneurial process, which involvesmore than just problem solving in a typical management position. An entrepreneur must find,evaluate, and develop an opportunity by overcoming the forces that resist the creation ofsomething new. The process has four distinct phases: (1) identification and evaluation of the opportunity, (2) development of the business plan, (3) determination of the required resources,and (4) management of the resulting enterprise. Although these phases proceed progressively, no one stage is dealt with in isolation or is totally completed before work on other phases occurs.For example, to successfully identify and evaluate an opportunity (phase 1), an entrepreneurmust have in mind the type of business desired (phase 4).
