Here's the opening excerpt of Arwen Petty's article:

Amongst all the talk about why innovation is important, or how every CEO worth the title is “placing a premium” on innovating, it’s increasingly difficult to unearth nuggets of applicable information and strategy.
This is especially true when we talk about connecting efforts with the enterprise. And it isn’t that organizations can’t come up with enough innovative ideas — they are, in droves. But why is there such a disconnect between great ideas and the bottom line? How can companies move past execution hurdles, put the right tools in place, and stop scrambling for competitive advantage?

Identifying “Intrapreneurs”

Bringing that perspective into the fold of an organization requires the identification of ‘intrapreneurs’ — people already part of the company and familiar with its practices and output — that have the potential to act as innovation catalysts.

My Business Recommendation: Companies should introduce "Intrapreneur Awards" into their organization cultures

How can companies encourage and reward employees who contribute entrepreneurial-type ideas into their respective organizations and help move the company forward?

Introduce "Intrapreneur Awards" into the company - and moreover, don't limit the number of these awards based on calendar year or any other restrictions. In short, if any employee successfully contributes to their company in entrepreneurially-type way, they should be rewarded as such.

As to what should comprise an Intrapreneur Award such as money, recognition, wall plaque, etc., we'll discuss possible ideas in another blog post.
