An emerging approach to collective entrepreneurship by employees is described in this volume. The author uses as the basis of his research a car parts factory - a small yet highly successful division of a quickly growing and profitable corporation. Stewart describes the resources needed for the company to succeed, which include work action, management participation, and internal transformational capabilities. Finally he relates the concept to cross-cultural studies of entrepreneurship.
