About this eBook
Preface Management and Entrepreneurship are two fascinating subjects. Every day we nd some new developments taking place in both these areas. The more one reads about these subjects, the more absorbing it becomes. It has been clearly established that the managerial skills and the entrepreneurial skills play a pivotal role in an individual s performance and success. Though these subjects have been part of Management education, it is only a few technological universities who have introduced these subjects of Management and Entrepreneurship for engineering students. Preparing an engineer, rather a performing engineer, would not be complete without the knowledge of Management and Entrepreneurship. Keeping the interests of engineering students, an attempt has been made to present the basic concepts of Management and Entrepreneurship, along with examples and illustrations. This book covers the basic concepts of Management, and the functions of Management like planning, organizing, sta ng, directing and controlling. The book also covers basic concepts of entrepreneurship, skills required for an e ective entrepreneur, the di erent concepts of Micro, Medium and small enterprises, the general schemes available for entrepreneurs, and skills required for preparing a project report. We are con dent that this book will help students to acquire the basic knowledge of Management and Entrepreneurship and make them better performers.
