However, it has also been found that gender and entrepreneurial training cause a difference on the relationship between the trust to subordinate and entrepreneurial intention. It has been determined that it is sufficient for male managers to see that subordinates can solve problems in order to increase entrepreneurial intention and it has been determined that, for female managers, subordinates' solving problems do not have a meaningful effect and subordinates' successfully running the organizational tasks is sufficient for the entrepreneurial intention. However, for SME managers with entrepreneurial training, it has been found that the subordinates' successfully running organizational tasks is an important factor for the continuance of entrepreneurship and for the SME managers who has not received entrepreneurial training, it has been found that the subordinates' capability for troubleshooting and trust to the subordinates' decisions are more significant.
