Here's the opening paragraph: "A few months ago Paul O’Connor from the The Adept Group asked some very interesting and insightful questions about Intrapreneurship. Why did intrapreneurship die in its initial roll out back in the 1980’s and why will it stick now? What has changed outside of intrapreneurship and inside of intrapreneurship now, in 2016, to enable it to endure?"
Although CEO’s are fairly optimistic about the economy and the outlook for growth, they are concerned about the relevance of their company’s products and services three years from now, the ability of competitors to take away business from them and about new entrants disrupting their business model.
Of course, the mantra in the boardroom has been “innovation, innovation, innovation” for years (or decades?). So how come just 17% of companies have developed and implemented a formal, company-wide process for innovation across all units?
Innovation is still too often seen as a project and not as an organizational capability to develop in order to help fend off disruption.
That’s where intrapreneurship comes in. Intrapreneurship is about the tools, methods and processes for improving and accelerating the innovation cycle, making sure you create products and services consumers actually want.
Intrapreneurship is about creating the environment, culture and structures for your employees to be entrepreneurial and developing the capabilities required to do so.
