This article survey is the theoretical literature about entrepreneurship , governmental entrepreneurship , corporate intrapreneurship and entrepreneurship dimensions and then explores a primary model from contextual field for experiment in the public sector organizations.
In this study, three questionnaires are designed to measure individual and organizational elements accompanied by entrepreneurship dimensions. To obtain adequate assurance about the information accuracy, all questionnaires should have reliability and validity. Upon gathering information, we focused on analyzing on these factors: eight organizational factors, seven individual factors and five dimensional factors.
The research results show that many factors may affect entrepreneurship. The canonical correlation in the study suggests two models for measuring entrepreneurship in public sector organizations. Also regression analysis explored some linear functions as dependent and independent variables in five alternatives. Among the individual elements: achievement, self-confidence, organizational commitment, negotiation skills are significant and among the entrepreneurial dimensions: the main constructs of entrepreneurship risk-taking, proactiveness, autonomy and tendency to reform are noteworthy. Accordingly customer-oriented factors, flexible structure, working culture, strategic control, management support and idea acceptance system are affecting entrepreneurship.
