Conference Paper
This study examined the relationship between Organizational Entrepreneurship and Organizational Performance within the Cooperative Extension System, a national educational network extending the research-based knowledge of land-grant colleges and universities. This study measured both Entrepreneurial Orientation (Covin & Slevin, 1989), and Entrepreneurial Management (Brown, Davidsson, & Wiklund, 2001). Extension Directors nationwide responded to a questionnaire, reporting on Organizational Entrepreneurship and Organizational Performance based on both financial and non-financial indictors. As Extension organizations address more diverse audiences, an increasingly complex funding mix, and rapidly evolving technologies, the field of entrepreneurship offers principles to continuously improve performance.
