The Entrepreneur's Pentathalon

Entrepreneurs use 5 skills

A new book, The Innovator's DNA, describes the 5 skills of successful entrepreneurs

They are associating, observing, experimenting,questioning and networking.

However, entrepreneurship educators debate whether these skills can be taught and learned. I think developing and perfecting entrepreneurial skills and attitudes in a combination of nature and nurture, and I've dedicated a lot of time testing the hypothesis. Like I've mentioned before, I can't teach someone to be a surgeon but I can teach them how to do surgery.

If you think you've got the right stuff, here are some things you can do to compete in the pentathalon

  1. Associating
  2. Observing
  3. Experimenting
  4. Questioning
  5. Networking
