About the Program
Intrapreneurship means driving innovation on a consistent basis, but within an organization—it’s internal entrepreneurship. This need not entail creating the next internet or printing press 2.0 (Of course it can lead there too). Intrapreneurship means making changes within your organization that have significant impacts, even on daily interactions and processes. Even small changes will lead to improved collaboration, productivity and synergy among teams and organizations. Add up enough small changes and a sea change engulfs any community. This course focuses on how to innovate immediately, practically and consistently. More so, it focuses on risk and how taking risks can lead to transformation. Risk need not entail disruption, as individuals will learn how to innovate and take risks in ways that organizations can accept and adopt. Participants will:
- Engage in interactive exercises that stimulate innovation
