Abstract

This paper identifies and interprets enacted experiences in drama workshops organized as part of an entrepreneurship training programme. We argue that drama is an effective tool in entrepreneurship training programmes offered to practicing entrepreneurs. Drama exercises can contribute to creating, reinforcing or complementing different forms of entrepreneurial experience, which are here termed enacted experience.

The results are encouraging for those who advocate using drama in training programmes for entrepreneurs. Drama sessions provide powerful experiences that may otherwise be out of reach of the participant. The paper contributes to the entrepreneurship training and entrepreneurial learning literatures by showing how enacted experiences in drama workshops are a form of experience that together with mastery, vicarious and social experience (Erikson, 2003) is connected to entrepreneurship development. Methodologically the paper illustrates how visual material can be applied in research.
