Continuation of Entrepreunership astuteness/creative skills(Skilled Creativity) and innovation of new products

I have the privilege to receive this Mandarin paper from Prof Murphy, which he had emailed me some 3 weeks+ ago. But I have not come around to do the blogs for the last 3 weeks until now. I had asked why the paper was delivered in Mandarin instead of English and I was told it was for a greater coverage of readers. It made sense though it would have been even better to have the English version too. I had thought my free day at home would do the trick, only to overspend time in my conceptualization work in designing a sustainable architectural module. Also, I have also thought that the mandarin paper would require some translation before my comments could make some sense. But logically, it cannot be the entire paper as it is supposedly from a paid publication. Regardless, all these need time. Hence I've decided to delegate this task into 3 parts. This is the continuation of my initial thoughts on the topic 3 weeks ago. When I received the complete paper, I was delighted to read the details and it tallies with what I was expecting - the exciting parts in both creativity and the thought process. Here is Part 1 of the paper review/comments:

Entrepreneurship has always been about seeing new ways of product creation that are novel and discovering new ways of doing businesses. It is basically about innovative thought processes in both product and service. The full paper has looked into mainly entrepreneurial alertness ('EA' for short to save my typing time) in a psychological and statistical way. The research in this area is still in its infancy despite the wide acknowledgment that entrepreneurial alertness is critical in identifying new business opportunities. The paper acknowledges the birth of creativity and creation of new final products or services are dependent on such astuteness. However, they view a difference in the process of bringing in creativity and final new innovative products. The authors feel that both are entirely two different concepts. Such astuteness are vital for concepts since EA helps in predicting how to promote new product innovation and formulate new creative skill developments. Creative skills of entrepreneurial alertness could impact the product innovation process. In order to research into depth in this area, the authors have nosed in the detail of the definition of EA.

The paper identifies two sample groups for research -- Empirical sample 1 : the China model
and empirical Sample 2: the US model.The first group sample looks into 146 different entrepreneurs. Assumption 1 has proven in initial stages of research that EA is vital in creative skills. And in the latter part of the research, they have also investigate 109 entrepreneurs in both Midwest and Southern parts of the US. This confirms their research in which a criteria of 13 objectives.Re-looking at the definition and concepts of EA.

The 3 areas of investigation:
1. Kizner (which the authors find the definition to be unclear and even confusing when it comes to 'an intention to describe the future scenario and inclination' and 'attitude in accepting possibilities); 2. Behavioral and 3. Information management.(knowledge management?)- during the process of information gathering, retrieval and storage ; individual strive in gathering information & use selective information in discovering potential entrepreneurial activities.
