This article examines public managers' orientations to entrepreneurial traits, values and characteristics. The data for the study come from an exploratory survey of 181 public managers. The article suggests 'the entrepre' is esteem but is a category manager neur' cannot claim to occupy. While most align with entrepreneurial traits and values, the survey highlights significant variations across divisions of gender, seniority and sector. The expansion of an entrepreneurial ethos is uneven and previous assumptions - that public managers are willing entrepreneurial subjects - may have to be partially revised.
