This study contributes to the knowledge in the fields of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial marketing by proposing EO, entrepreneurial orientation, as an antecedent of EM behaviors and arguing that EO acts as a multidimensional construct when affecting EM behaviors. The relationships between EO and EM behaviors are empirically investigated using multi-group confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modeling techniques. Results from the analyses support the hypothesis that EM behaviors are driven by EO. At the dimension level, innovativeness, proactiveness, and risk-taking are found to independently affect EM behaviors.

Children who love to paint with crayon and water color often develop unusual perspective and excellent representation of nature. McCarthy has identified six scales and eighteen skills that can be sorted grouped to describe various aptitudes in children for placement, when the promotion and remediation is a highly treasured experience which every good teacher must possess.
Acquisition and reinforcement of skills and aptitudes through science laboratories and workshop practice and other curricular and extracurricular ctivities represent the most natural ways of stimulating science education and real life work which lead to high productivity. These considerations underscore the need to focus skill development and assessment in our teacher education and in-service training programmes, more especially in the science based teaching subject areas of physics, chemistry, biology, integrated science, agricultural science, introductory technology, wood work, metal work, electrical electronics, home economics, clothing and textiles etc.
This project wok therefore attempts to explore briefly the concepts of skills acquisition as a determinant of business growth with special considerations of their acquisition on some selected small business in Lagos, Nigeria.

If the PMOs of several firms operating in the same industry and the same region were compared, it is likely that very different PMOs would be found.

H.1) The entrepreneurial Orientation is a determinant of firms’ growth Since we believe that firms have an idiosyncratic way to deal with crisis and that crisis may also be an opportunity for proactive firms, we think that, even if. To do so, the authors examine the joint influence of both firm resources and entrepreneurial orientation on the decision to establish interfirm alliances.
