Waheed Ali Umrani, Rosli Mahmood


Corporate Entrepreneurship is globally advancing phenomena. Organizations in the search of excellence, increase in their financial and non-financial gains are adopting corporate entrepreneurship for a better tomorrow. Prominent scholars played a significant role in the development, understanding and advancement of corporate entrepreneurship. In this respect, particularly for measuring the state of corporate entrepreneurial activities inside a firm, the researchers developed tools to measure and assess it. In pursuing that objective the Corporate Entrepreneurship Assessment Instrument (CEAI) was developed. As this instrument was mainly developed and tested in the United States and Canada therefore, in this study the psychometric properties of Corporate Entrepreneurship Assessment Instrument construct are assessed in the Pakistan’s context. Two hundred and sixty five bank branch managers from big five banks of Pakistan were surveyed. We analysed the data using Smart PLS 3.0 software due to its methodological usefulness. The findings demonstrated that the scale has adequate level of internal consistency reliability, convergent validity and discriminant validity for each CEAI dimension. Based on above findings, it is suggested that CEAI construct can be effective in measuring the corporate entrepreneurship in the banking sector of Pakistan. Therefore, the potential researchers are suggested to employ this tool in measuring corporate entrepreneurship in the developing countries and in Pakistan specially.
