Why are attempts at corporate innovation so rarely successful?
What can improve your company’s innovation “win rate”?
How can you accelerate your career within an organization that’s trying to become more innovative?
What single skill set will best prepare you for changes in the business environment?
The answer: Intrapreneurship.
Intrapreneurship is application of the mindset, skills and behaviors of entrepreneurship applied within large organizations. Originally focused on corporate spinoff creation, intrapreneurship increasingly plays a vital role in the innovation of new products, services, business models and processes.
Ideas are easy – execution is hard. Very few good ideas make it over the finish line. We’ll discuss why intrapreneurs are now so important to corporate success, how being intrapreneurial works under big-organization constraints, how to build up your intrapreneurship “muscles”, and much more.
This talk will be useful to anyone:
- Tasked with an innovation agenda
- Hoping to become a more valuable employee, or
- Interested in improving innovation within his or her organization.
