WHY THIS EVENT?
Download Brochure

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.

During this 1-day training event, you’ll hear the latest insights from experts, discuss case studies with fellow practitioners and engage in workshops to get you up to speed with Intrapreneurship.

Corporate Entrepreneurs Newsletter: Professional Corporate Entrepreneur


Below is the latest writings from Susan Foley and Corporate Entrepreneur's e-newsletter on intrapreneurship:


Professional Corporate Entrepreneur
One corporate entrepreneur said she had to define her own job spec because the human resource department didn't know how to define what she did. The reality is that she didn't fit the profile of the traditional employee, manager or leader. Corporate entrepreneurs don't fit, that's the point.
