From the creation of Mastercard to the birth of Java and from Apple’s creation to Kodak’s demise..

These are the intrapreneurial stories you simply must know, as well as the lessons that can be learned from them, preparing you to ustilize Intrapreneurship as a way to strengthen and transform your organization from within.

The term “intrapreneurship” was coined in 1982 by Gifford Pinchot III when he wrote the book “Intrapreneuring”.

With half of the S&P index being replaced over the next 10 years and companies struggling to attract and retain the necessary talent it is more relevant than ever. 

Famous examples of successful new products such as Post-It Notes at 3M, the Pontiac Fiero at GM and the personal computer at IBM were cited as the result of entrepreneurial endeavours from individuals within the organization.

“Intrapreneurship is the act of behaving like an entrepreneur, but within an established organization” – Gifford Pinchot III

Intrapreneurship is essential for both existing organizations – who want to stay ahead in today’s market – and forward thinking employees – who want to advance their careers through intrapreneurship by developing new solutions to new problems that will bring great value to their organizations.

Through this program you’ll develop a new intrapreneurial skill set including:

  • Understanding the challenges that big corporates face when innovating
  • Assessing what makes startups successful
  • Exploring new business ideas using ideation techniques
  • Learning how to test and validating new business ideas efficiently
