  10. 10. What is Intrapreneurship? “The practice of a corporate management style that integrates risk-taking and innovation approaches, as well as the reward and motivational techniques, that are more traditionally the province of  entrepreneurship.”
  11. 11. Intrapreneurs vs. Entrepreneurs Entrepreneurs Intrapreneurs Provide the spark Keep the flame going Anywhere their vision takes them Work within an organization Face many hurdles, inside and outside of organization Deal with conflict within the organization Difficult to get resources at times Resources readily available to them Lose everything when fail Still have a paycheck
  12. 12. Great things about building Intrapreneurial Employees •Innovations add to revenue stream •Increase motivation and empowerment among employees •Retain good employees •Utilize all of the brain power in an organization
  13. 13. Who are the Intrapreneurial Employees? •Can't assign someone the job of being an intrapreneur •Highly motivated people, little supervision, clear visions
  14. 14. How to encourage employees to pursue ideas? •Encouragement can go a long way. •Clear vision of where your company is headed. •Brainstorm with employees about new ideas. •Include employees in lower-level positions. •A clear reward system. Money is not the only one. •Beware of the type of promotion you give.
  15. 15. Criteria for choosing a great idea to implement •Will your customers have a need for this new product or service? •New product or service will attract new customers? •Better than the competition? •Do you have sufficient resources? Do a cost analysis. •Consider potential risks and rewards.
  16. 16. How to establish lines of responsibility •Sometimes better to let the employee do things their way. •Weaknesses in the business plan? Balance these out by adding support staff to the project. •You may work together to decide which employees will work on the new business. •Give regular, clear feedback.
  17. 17. Some words of cautions •Not every intrapreneurial idea results in success. •When an idea takes off, feeling of frustration for not receiving enough compensation for their ideas. •One fabulous idea does not guarantee future ideas will take off.
