It is not the Big that will eat the Small. It is the fast that will beat the slow!*
The Corporate Entrepreneurship workshops are crammed-packed, the interest for this subject has definitely been super hot. Why is that?
Do we now see how entrepreneurship can reinvigorate and spike certain behavior and be a source of long-lacked energy? Which characteristics does the entrepreneur carry that we need to “successfully” innovate our businesses, processes, products and lives?
What frightens us when we think of the intra organizational entrepreneur, or the intrapreneur as she can also be called? What do we need in terms of structure and processes to support these people?
Is it necessary “people”? Or can it be ways of organizing our teams?
As you eagerly study the multitude of apps, mails, tweets and news on your phone on your way to Innovation In Action; Give it a thought.
In which ways do I function as an entrepreneur? How could this behavior benefit my organisation, whether small or big?
Have we reached lines end to acquisitions of small tech? Will we see a continued journey of entrepreneurs choosing to take their technologies to large scale success, finding them more hand-over ready as the grow slow? Will entrepreneurs choose to take the escape route and refine yet another business idea of their own, rather than incorporating their freedom to operate?
If you would like, drop me a quick note on any thoughts you have, based on these thoughts.
