Application of Krueger’s Model in Explaining Entrepreneurial Intentions among Employees in Morocco

Taoufik Yatribi


Today, the entrepreneurship became an orientation of career among several employees. In spite of this attraction towards entrepreneurship, the study of the entrepreneurial intention is necessary to understand why certain employees decide to leave their employment to create their company. This research thus suggests to explain the entrepreneurial intention among the employees, specifically among the executives-engineers.

The method used rests on the technique of the structural equations of a theoretical model widely accepted in the literature, namely Krueger’s model. The test leans on the statistical treatment of 376 questionnaires administered by electronic way.

The results of the statistical analyses allow to validate globally Krueger’s model, we find that the perceived desirability and feasibility influences the entrepreneurial intention. Then, if the experience has an effect on the perceived feasibility, it has not impact on the perceived desirability. We conclude that the used theoretical model remains insufficient to explain the entrepreneurial intention in an organizational context. Our study allows to highlight the necessity of using other complementary theoretical approaches to explain and predict better the entrepreneurial intention among the employees. The theoretical and managerial implications of this research will be presented, and avenues of research will be proposed.
