Preface
It gives me immensepleasure to author the book “Management and Entrepreneurship” prescribed for B.E. 5th/6th Semester courses of all branches of Engineering of the Visvesvaraya Technological University. This subject is of immense value for budding engineers to make them better managers and successful entrepreneurs. I have felt a huge shortage of books and relevant materials on this subject. The books available in themarket are mostly written with Western World Perspective and the examples in those books were not relevant to our educational system. This has motivated me to write this book. The first four chapters of the book discuss on the management functions and principles and the last four chapters discuss the entrepreneurship. Adequate number of illustrations have been included in each chapter. In addition,each chapter contains student learning activities to give the readers a chance to enhance the learning process. I wish to thank Dr. S. Jayanna, Prof. and Chairman, Vijayanagara Institute of Management Studies, Gulbarga University PG Centre, Bellary for his inspiration, help and guidance extended while writing this book. I extend my thanks to Dr. S.S. Bhavikatti for his inspiration to author thisbook. I also gratefully acknowledge the help and support of my wife Smt. Nagaveni Biradar, my colleagues Prof. Yadavalli Basavaraj and Kotresh Sardar. Sincere thanks are also due to the publishers for their effective cooperation in the early release of this book. Perfection cannot be achieved in a single literature, but there is always scope for improvement. Hence the author invites suggestions fromthe readers to further improve the book.
