Entrepreneurship Inside Organizations: Perception or Reality (by Susan Foley)

Another outstanding article by Susan Foley of Corporate Entrepreneurship.

Among my favorite parts of the article is this insight from an Entrepreneurial audit:
A majority of organizations (63%) felt they had a distinct and compelling growth strategy but the resources, funding and metrics needed to support that strategy were not in place. Only 37% of organizations provided the resources and funds for new growth projects. While less than half of the organizations aligned their strategy with the metrics needed to drive business growth.

The Rise of The Intrapreneur (by Sahil Verma)

Here's a nice article on the general topic of Intrapreneurship and its importance to businesses.  The story by Sahil Verman also features a few key insightful statistics, as well as discusses what can make intrapreneurship flourish and be encouraged within a company.

Below are my personal two favorite paragraphs/gems of wisdom from the article:

But entrepreneurship is not just valuable to the national economy, and commentators are advocating that entrepreneurship be fostered within firms in order to ensure that the work environment focuses on innovation. They invite businesses to develop among their employees a type of internal entrepreneur referred to as an ‘intrapreneur’.

So, how can businesses encourage intrapreneurs to flourish? Respondents report that flexibility over working time and location (48 per cent), updating skills (42 per cent) and mixing staff from different functions (36 per cent) are key measures to help foster innovation within a business.
