Entrepreneurship has started to be used as a tool for individual interests as well as the implementation of innovative ideas. Sustainability in entrepreneurship requires corporate social responsibility and ethical principles in leadership. The fact that individual interests are a hidden aim in entrepreneurship puts justice and ethics in the background. Entrepreneurship is based on sustainable, ethical, corporate innovation, and creative thinking. Entrepreneurship, which is set forth with the individual secret goals of entrepreneurs, causes important problems in leadership and managerial context. Especially, managerial pamperdom and prestige entrepreneurship that emerged in professional organizations are introduced to the literature for the first time. It is thought that this chapter will make significant contributions to the fields of entrepreneurship, business, management, and strategy.

Research Methodology

The systematic review method was applied in this chapter. This method is a qualitative research method that includes identification, review and research, classification and data analysis, summarization, extracting data, discussion, and presentation processes (Papaioannou et al., 2010; DeMarrais & Lapan, 2003). First of all, a social source of inspiration was determined to perform the study (Petticrew & Roberts, 2008; Amenta, 2003). Pamperdom and prestige in management and strategy can cause important problems. Managerial pamperdom is the reason for many problems arising in the context of work commitment, employee-employer relations, performance, and productivity. On the other hand, prestige in entrepreneurship is important in terms of corporate and individual purposes. After determining the points of inspiration, the research question was determined as follows: What are “managerial pamperdom” and “prestige entrepreneurship” and what are their dimensions?
