Management development is currently about many things - making sure that the candidate has right sort of up-to-date specialized knowledge, functional know-how, skills training, management knowledge and job experience - but the one experience that distinguishes it from other field of learning is that, it seeks the opportunity to prove growth both to the enterprise and for all its staff. As a result, large organizations have strived over the last decade to promote additional entrepreneurial activity and to capture more opportunities than their normal product development systems seem to permit This has provided entrepreneurship experts with plenty of food for though. However, the evidence is strong that nothing leads to failure like success. During the 1980s the idea of developing and supporting entrepreneurs with the main organization ('entrepreneurship') became more rapid. The paper suggests that, there should be an open door to the efforts of individual and teams working on innovations that spun off from the company's main product portfolio. In the end, capturing these opportunities led to additional growth and renewal of the organization/enterprise. The paper recommend that the organization should develop technique that uses leaderless discussion groups to develop awareness and sensitivity to oneself and others (sometime T-group training and laboratory training). Sensitivity training is not widely used today as an organization/enterprise development technique. Successful entrepreneurial organizations have come to realize that there is a central role for the very type of entrepreneurial activity that was present at the early formation of their business. The enterprises themselves must deliver by becoming entrepreneurial corporations.
